Home Pregnancy Test Overview
Home pregnancy tests can find jthe presence of a pregnancy hormone (called human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG) in a sample of urine. High levels of hCG are made during pregnancy. The home tests have similar results to the pregnancy tests done on urine in most doctors` offices if they are used exactly as instructed.
When to test
Pregnancy test kits can be used on first day of a missed menstrual period. But the test results are more accurate if you wait a few days longer. If you do the test as soon as you have missed a period and the results show you are not pregnant (negative results), repeat the test in 1 week if your menstrual period has not started, or have a pregnancy test done at your doctor`s office or a clinic.
How Is It Done
Carefully read the instructions that come with the pregnancy test kits. Be sure to read the result at the appropriate time indicated in the instructions for accurate results.
If you are using a midstream kit, urinate a small amount first and then hold the midstream test kit in your urine stream as you finish urinating.
