Why Does a Pregnancy Test Even Matter?Pregnancy tests are the best way to determine whether you are pregnant. Since the symptoms of pregnancy can also be symptoms of other conditions, pregnancy tests are more accurate than looking at symptoms alone.
Urine pregnancy tests determine whether your urine contains a hormone called hCG. This is the hormone your body produces after a fertilized egg attaches to the wall of your uterus. During pregnancy, this hormone will continue to rise.
When can I take the pregnancy test?
The urine pregnancy test is most accurate after your first missed period. One week following your missed period is a good standard.
When do I get the results?
Results are available during your appointment. The test will indicate whether or not you are pregnant, usually by a change in color, a line change, or a symbol appearing on the test.
Will the pregnancy test be accurate?
When done correctly, urine pregnancy tests are 97% accurate.
