Home Pregnancy Test

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

One of the most common home pregnancy related questions is: How soon can you take a home pregnancy test? Well, before we can give you that answer, lets explain how they work.

9 Days after fertilization has taken place, the egg will start to move down the fallopian tube into the uterus where implantation will take place. When the fertilized egg implants itself the placenta starts to develop and this triggers the release hCG into the woman’s blood. Some of this hCG will also pass through into the urine. It is this hCG hormone in the urine which a home pregnancy test uses to determine if you are pregnant or not.

While a few home pregnancy tests may be sensitive enough to show a pregnancy on the first day of a woman’s missed period, most test kits are more accurate about a week after a missed period.
What are the different home pregnancy tests?

The most common types of home pregnancy tests use a test strip or dipstick that you hold in the urine stream or dip into a sample of urine. An area on the end of the dipstick or test strip changes color if hCG is present, meaning you are pregnant.

A second type uses a urine collection cup with a test device. To use this type of test, you may place several drops of urine into a well in the test device or you put the test device into urine collected in a cup. An area of the device changes color if hCG is present, meaning you are pregnant.

A third, less common type of test, mixes a sample of urine in several tubes or cups with a powder or liquid to cause a chemical reaction. The presence of hCG causes a chemical reaction that makes a color change. The color of the mixture is compared with a color comparison strip to show if you are pregnant.
