How Do Pregnancy Tests Work?
Pregnancy tests look for a hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin or hCG for short. This is a hormone only produced during pregnancy, and once it has had time to build in the body, a test can detect it and produce a positive result.
There are two types of pregnancy tests:
HCG can be detected in either of these tests, but urine tests are most commonly used generally due to their effectiveness, ease of use, and cost.
When Should I Take a Pregnancy Test?
Taking a pregnancy test on the day of your missed period is best. This allows hCG levels to build and be detected in urine.
It’s not impossible to get a positive result if taken before this time, but you risk a false result when taken too early.
