When is the best time to take a pregnancy test?
The best time to take a pregnancy test is at least one week after a missed period. During this time, your body has had time to produce the correct amount of hCG hormone to show up in a test accurately.
Though tests can detect hCG in urine as early as four days before your missed period, it is more sensitive in the days after. When you wait a little longer, you can receive a more accurate result from the test.
How does a pregnancy test work?
It’s simple. Your body produces a hormone called hCG, human chorionic gonadotropin, when you become pregnant. The pregnancy test detects the amount of hCG hormone in your urine to see if you are pregnant. The process is quick and painless.
Home Pregnancy Tests
Most of the time, over-the-counter home pregnancy tests are quite accurate. There is still a minor chance an at-home pregnancy test could show up false, depending on how you use them. If a pregnancy test is taken too soon or the directions are not followed, there is a chance for a negative result.
Visit our center for a free pregnancy test to confirm your pregnancy, even if you received a positive result, to be sure. Our caring team is ready to help and talk about all your options.
