How Does a Pregnancy Test Work?

When a woman gets pregnant, her body produces a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). After several days, this hormone builds rapidly and enters her blood system and urine.

The pregnancy tests you buy over the counter are urine-based. They require some form of urine to detect hCG.

When Should I Take a Pregnancy Test?

Because it takes a little while for your body to produce a sufficient amount of hCG to be detected by the pregnancy test, experts suggest waiting until after your missed period. The longer you wait, the more accurate your results will be. Try taking a test first thing in the morning when your urine is the most concentrated.

Isn’t an At-Home Pregnancy Test Enough?

Some at-home pregnancy tests are more sensitive than others and can detect hCG earlier. You can get different results depending on which test you purchase and when you take it.

You can even get a false positive or false negative result. That means either you have taken the test too soon, and it indicates you aren’t pregnant, or it indicates you are pregnant, but you have miscarried.

What is My Next Step?

If your PHC pregnancy test is positive, we will schedule you for a free ultrasound. Because it is possible to get a positive pregnancy test result after you have miscarried, an ultrasound reveals if your pregnancy is still growing with a detectable heartbeat. It also provides additional information for your health and safety.
