Is a Urine Pregnancy Test the Most Accurate?A urine pregnancy tests shows whether your urine contains a hormone called hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), the hormone that your body produces after a fertilized egg attaches to the wall of your uterus. If you are pregnant, this hormone continues to rise. That makes the urine pregnancy test an easy option for most women.
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.
When do I take the test?
Urine pregnancy tests are most accurate one week following your missed period.
How do I do it?
You can use a test you buy at the drug store and follow the instructions that are included. It is usually done by placing the test in your urine stream or collecting your urine in a cup and dipping the stick into the urine. Tests vary on how long it takes to find out your results.
