What does the result tell me?
If two purple lines appear in the result window, and the lower line is the same shade or darker than the upper line then your result is positive. You should repeat the test with the second test stick after exactly one week. if both tests yield a positive result you can assume that you have reached post menopause. If two purple lines appear in the result window and the upper line is significantly darker shade than the lower line. this means the test has been correctly performed, but you have not yet reached post menopause. The same applies if only one line appears. In this case you do not need to use the second test strip.
