What Does a Book Mean On A Digital Pregnancy Test?
A digital pregnancy test is a handheld device used to detect the presence of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in urine. If the test results are positive, it means that you are pregnant. A book on a digital pregnancy test may indicate that further testing is needed for a definitive result, or it could signal other possible complications.
The Different Meanings of a Book on A Digital Pregnancy Test
The book symbol on a digital pregnancy test may have several meanings depending on the brand and type you are using. The most common meaning includes:
- Evaporation Line: A faint line that appears in the results window of the pregnancy test, that means the test hasn’t been able to determine if the result is a true positive or a false positive. To accurately interpret the test, check the results window after the instructed time has elapsed. If a colorless line runs parallel to the control line, it’s an evaporation line.
- Invalid Test: If a book symbol appears in the results window, it generally means that the test result is invalid and that you need to repeat the pregnancy test.
- Inconclusive: If a book appears in the results window, it may be an indication that the pregnancy test results are inconclusive and that further tests may be necessary.
What to Do If You See a Book On A Digital Pregnancy Test
- Read the instructions that come with the pregnancy test to make sure you have followed the directions correctly.
- Check the expiration date on the package.
- Take another pregnancy test following the instructions on the package later in the day, as hCG levels can vary throughout the day.
- If the results are still inconclusive, consult with your healthcare provider for further testing.
A pregnancy test can be a great way to quickly and easily determine if you are pregnant or not, but the results are not always clear-cut. If you see a book on your digital pregnancy test, it can mean several things, including an evaporation line, invalid results, or inconclusive results. If you see a book in the results window, you should read the instructions, check the expiration date, and repeat the test following the instructions given. If the results are still inconclusive, you should consult with your healthcare provider for further testing.
