First Pregnancy Test To Do

To find out if you are pregnant, pregnancy tests are your friend, they are practical and you must use them to obtain the most reliable possible result.

How does a pregnancy test work?

The pregnancy test can detect the presence of the human chorionic gonadotropin, or HCG hormone, secreted only in cases of pregnancy and can be detected about ten days after fertilization.

The test is easy to do, you must collect a small sample of clean, midstream urine in a sterile plastic cup and put a chemically prepared testing strips into the sample of urine and wait for the result displayed. If it is positive, a specific symbol will appear in the window reading (often a blue).If negative, you can do another test some time later because such a result does not confirm you’re not pregnant.

Moreover, if it is positive, you have a good chance of becoming pregnant because the test is reliable to 99%. To confirm the result, ask your doctor who will prescribe a blood test to confirm and date your pregnancy.
