URINARY PREGNANCY TEST (STRIPS)

URINARY PREGNANCY TEST (STRIPS)

 

If you think you could be pregnant, it’s a good idea to take a test and make sure. If you are pregnant, you will need to begin prenatal care. Pregnancy tests can differ in how early they’ll detect a pregnancy. In many cases, you might get a positive from an at-home test as early as 10 days after conception. For a more accurate result, wait until after you’ve missed your period to take a test. Remember, if you take a test too soon it could be negative even if you are pregnant. If you get a negative test and then miss your period, take another test or contact your healthcare provider.

 

DESCRIPTION

 

An urinary strip usually uses your urine to look for hCG in your body. According to most manufacturers, these pregnancy tests are about 99% effective. 

Your lab technician typically place one to several drops of urine on a prepared chemical strip or place the strip in the urine stream. The strip is specially-designed to detect hCG. For many of these tests, hCG can be detected in your urine about 10 days after conception. However, taking it after your missed period reduces the chance of getting a false-negative.

There are a few things to keep in mind when you take a urine pregnancy strip tests, including:​

  • Not drinking excessive amounts of fluids before you take a pregnancy test. Many people think this will increase the volume of urine, but it can also dilute (thin out) your hCG levels.
