Are Home Pregnancy Tests Accurate
Most hope pregnancy tests are pretty accurate. It is nearly impossible to get a false positive on a home test. It is much easier to get a false negative (test says no but you are pregnant) because there are many factors that go into getting a positive test.
Home Pregnancy tests measure the hormones in your urine. These levels are highest in the morning, so testing in the morning will reduce the chance of a false negative. The levels also increase rapidly through the first few weeks of pregnancy, so testing too early in a pregnancy could result in a false negative. If you are testing and getting a negative but believe you are pregnant try waiting a few days and testing again, or call your doctor for a blood test.
