Wanting answers you can rely on? We’ve got you covered! We offer free, confidential pregnancy testing that helps provide the clarity you need to plan your next step.
How Does A Pregnancy Test Work?
Pregnancy tests look to determine if there is the presence of a pregnancy hormone called hCG in blood or urine samples. Once the body has built up enough of this hormone (usually around the time of your first missed period), the test will produce a positive result. The test will give a negative result if the hormone isn’t detected.
Being sure to test at the right time and not with a diluted sample can assist in receiving the most accurate results.
What Is HCG?
HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, which is the pregnancy hormone pregnancy tests are sensitive to. This hormone is exclusive to pregnancy and begins to build up quickly after conception.
When Should I Take A Pregnancy Test?
Although you can take a pregnancy test at any time, the Mayo Clinic states they are “more likely to be accurate if taken after the first day of a missed period.” Waiting this time will help provide the hCG hormone to build up and be detected by a pregnancy test.
