Home Pregnancy Test Guide
Home pregnancy tests are often the first option a woman takes to find out if she is pregnant.
Keeping in mind that these tests are not always accurate, it is always wise to visit a doctor as well to confirm whether you are or aren't pregnant.
This is obviously essential if the home pregnancy test has shown a positive result, however even with a negative result showing you may still be pregnant.
Pregnancy tests that the doctor will perform are blood tests or urine tests. Timing is everything with a pregnancy test as a test conducted too early can show a false negative reading.
Pregnancy tests that aren't highly sensitive may not be able to detect pregnancy until four days after implantation whilst more sensitive tests can detect shortly after implantation.
If you are after a home pregnancy test kit then consider these options:
First Response Early Result
Reviews have shown that this kit is one of, if not the most accurate home pregnancy test kit on the market. It is available in one, two and three strip test kits and most women prefer the two strip test.
Fact Plus Select
This is a low sensitivity test which is best for women who have had a recent birth or miscarriage. These women already have hCG in their systems therefore a false positive result is likely with certain test kits. A less sensitive test like Fact Plus Select will pick up hCG from the current pregnancy, not from previous ones.
Clearblue Easy Digital Pregnancy Test
This is a nice little digital test which actually displays the words "pregnant" or "not pregnant" as opposed to lines of dye that can often be difficult to interpret when one is nervously conducting a test. This one costs around $20 for two tests.
The best home pregnancy tests are those which are sensitive and easy to interpret. The above test kits are three of the best so do try them if you don't want to visit the doctor right away.
