When is the best time to take
a pregnancy test?
We recommend that a pregnancy test be conducted once the woman has missed the first day of her period. However, the amount of hCG a woman produces varies greatly. Therefore, some women may not have a positive test until 31 days after the first day of her last period.
How Accurate are your tests?
We recommend that a pregnancy test be conducted once the woman has missed the first day of her period. However, the amount of hCG a woman produces varies greatly. Therefore, some women may not have a positive test until 31 days after the first day of her last period. Our pregnancy tests are one of the most sensitive urine-based tests available, detecting concentrations of hCG as low as 20mIU/ml.
If my urine test is negative, should I get
a blood test?
Only under rare circumstances would this be necessary. If a pregnancy is still suspected, another urine specimen should be collected 48 hours later and
tested. If the test is still negative it is recommended that you should consult with a physician.
