How Does A Pregnancy Test Work?
Pregnancy tests detect a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). These tests can use either your urine or blood to look for this hormone. Some tests can spot HCG before you miss a period, but for the most accurate results, wait at least one day after your missed period. Results could be more accurate if you take the test first thing in the morning when your urine is more concentrated.
At-Home Pregnancy Testing
When done correctly, at-home pregnancy tests are very accurate. These urine tests are inexpensive and commonly used. An at-home test’s accuracy depends on:
- How strictly you follow the instructions
- When you take the test
- When you ovulate and how soon the egg implants
- The sensitivity of the particular pregnancy test

Can I have a retest if my test is negative and my period doesn’t start?
Yes, you can be rescheduled for another test. The HCG hormone doubles every 2.2 days during the first three months of pregnancy.
Should I see a doctor if I have a second negative test and have not started my period?
If you have concerns about missed periods and your pregnancy test continues to be negative, you should see your health care provider for assessment. If you need resources for health care, we can provide you with referrals.
