Most home pregnancy tests are capable of detecting pregnancy as early as 1 day after a missed period. You may get a false result if the test is taken too early in your cycle If you have a negative result, but still don’t get your period, test again 2 or 3 days later.
Pregnancy tests are designed to tell if your urine contains a hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG). This hormone is made right after a fertilized egg implants which is usually about 6 days after fertilization. If you are pregnant, levels of hCG continue to rise rapidly, doubling every 2 to 3 days.
This easy-to-use test can be used in the comfort of your home. Test during your first-morning bathroom visit when the concentration of the hormone is at its highest. Urinate on the absorbant tip directly for about 10 seconds. Lay the test on a flat surface. Read the results within 3-15 minutes.
When you’re trying to conceive, you will need both ovulation tests and pregnancy tests—not just one or the other.
