What is a Pregnancy Test Kit?

A Pregnancy Test Kit is the easiest way to confirm pregnancy. It comes as a strip, which determines the pregnancy hormones in your urine and provides you with the quickest result if you are pregnant or not. The test normally takes 2-3 minutes altogether where pregnancy is detected mostly through two lines appearing in the strip.

How to Do Pregnancy Test at home?

If you suspect that you may be pregnant, you are very likely to opt for a pregnancy test kit, which is accessible in private-which is your home.

  • All you need to do is collect your urine sample in a clean container and use a dropper to put 23 urine drops to the test strip.
  • Keep the test strip on the flat surface and wait for 12 minutes before you study the results.
  • There are two regions in the test strip namely control line and test line.
  • Note down the test results within 5 minutes, after that test is no longer valid.
  • If you get a dark line in the control region but no line in the test region, then the test is negative and you are not pregnant.
  • If you get two lines, one in the control region and another in test region, then your test is positive and you are pregnant. Sometimes, you can also get the false positive pregnancy test. Know the reasons behind False Positive Pregnancy Test.
  • If you get one line in the test region and no line in the control region, then your test is invalid.

You should use pregnancy test kits with the first-morning urine sample. It is more concentrated in hCG hormones and gives precise results. You can also explore article to know more about when to take pregnancy test.

Pregnancy Test Kits: FAQs

1- What do faint lines on pregnancy test indicate?

It might happen with many women when they discovered a faint line on the pregnancy test. This is important and one must understand that any line appearing within the interpretation time period should be taken as positive and indicates pregnancy. These lines appeared due to the presence of hCG level which is close to sensitivity.

2- Can I take a pregnancy test at any time of the day?

It is advised to take a pregnancy test after missing your menstrual cycle for at least 7 days or any time after your period is due to begin. It is around two weeks later conception. The result can vary as it cannot be accurate on the first day due to low hCG hormone concentration.

3- Can I use the ovulation test kit for pregnancy test?

The answer is NO. Ovulation test kit cannot distinguish between the two different hormones LH and hCG. Even if you have any of these hormonal surges it will show a positive result. Hence, it does not confirm the pregnancy.

4- Can drinking water or fluid before test affect the results?

Drinking water or any other fluid can affect the home pregnancy result taken early in the morning. It can lower down the hCG level which will become undetectable. You may think that you are not expecting when actually you might have conceived.

And if you are planning to play a prank on your best friend or better half then this piece of writing is meant for you: Fake Positive Pregnancy Test. If you are literally trying to conceive then read guide to get pregnant to help you conceive faster.

It's good to have a urine pregnancy test kit for self-assurance. But according to me, we should not rely on it. We can only be 100% sure after doctor's evaluation.
