How Do Pregnancy Tests Work?
Pregnancy tests are very simple and painless. When you become pregnant, your body produces a pregnancy hormone called HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). A pregnancy test detects the amount of HCG in your urine to determine if you are indeed pregnant.
When To Take A Pregnancy Test
According to the Mayo Clinic, the best time to take a pregnancy test is at least one day after your missed period. At this time, your body has had enough time to produce the right amount of HCG to accurately show up in a test. By waiting a little bit after your missed period, you can get clear and accurate results.
Do Home Pregnancy Tests Work?
Yes—at-home pregnancy tests can be very accurate. While these tests are normally accurate, there’s a slight chance they could be false based on how you use the test. If taken too soon, or the directions are not followed correctly, you could receive a false positive.
