Home Pregnancy Test Results

pregnancy test

The Home Pregnancy Test Results should be read between two and seven minutes after adding the urine. The package insert will give clear directions. Throw the test away after the time has elapsed. Generally, after seven minutes the dye can break through and you may see an evaporation line, which can be confusing and disappointing.


Remember, a positive Home Pregnancy Test Result does not measure pregnancy; it only indicates that hCG is present in your urine (which typically implies pregnancy). You should schedule a visit to your doctor for confirmation.


Positive Home Pregnancy Test Results are more reliable than negative because false negatives are not uncommon. If your period is late, consider re-testing, since positive Home Pregnancy Test Results sometimes can not be obtained until the first day of a missed period. In the event that the test remains negative but your period has not started, consult your doctor.

Read and follow all of the manufacturer instructions extremely closely, including where they instruct you too keep the kit prior to using it. Many tests offer toll-free hotlines—don’t hesitate to call them if you have any questions or concerns.
