How Does A Pregnancy Test Work?
Not positive if you’re pregnant or not? When you are pregnant, your body produces a hormone called hCG, human chorionic gonadotropin. When you take a pregnancy test, it detects the amount of hCG hormone in your urine to determine if you are pregnant.
When To Take A Pregnancy Test
The best time to take a pregnancy test is at least one week after a missed period to get the most accurate results. At this point, your body has time to produce the right amount of hCG hormone to be accurately detected in a test.
Though pregnancy tests can detect hCG in urine as early as four days before your missed period, it is more sensitive in the days after. You can receive a more accurate result from the test by waiting just a bit longer.
Verify your pregnancy with lab-quality pregnancy testing for your peace of mind. Even though home pregnancy tests are normally accurate, there is still a chance you could have taken the test too early or incorrectly. This can be easy to do, as many women feel rushed into making a decision.
For the most accurate results, get lab-quality pregnancy testing to be sure. You are not alone in this waiting period.
