How to Understand Pregnancy Test Results
There are many different pregnancy tests on the market, including the Clear Blue test, the Answer test, the Quickvue Test, the First Response Test, the Equate test, and the EPT pregnancy test. All of these tests are basically one step tests that measure the HCG levels in your urine.
HCG is the “pregnancy hormone” that is excreted by the implanted embryo starting from the date of implantation, which is 9-11 days after ovulation. These tests can all pick up a pregnancy before a missed period, but they have a high false positive reading and are only accurate at 99 percent accuracy at the time of the missed period.
If you want to try a homemade pregnancy test, you can try the bleach test or the Pine Sol test, which involve adding bleach to your urine to see if it changes color or foams up vigorously during a pregnancy. These tests have not been tested scientifically and may give fake test results. It is better to try a safe, over the counter pregnancy test that will definitely give you accurate test results.
