A successful conception will be easily and quickly shown by a pharmacy test diagnosis. This article contains all the relevant information about home testing.
1. What are pregnancy tests?
Test preparations for determining an interesting situation are of different types:
- digital or electronic;
- tablet or in the form of a test cartridge;
- strip tests or strips.
Rapid tests are based on the detection of HCG or HCG (x ο rionicheskogo g ο gonadotropin human) in the urine, this gοrmon pregnancy intensively produced in expectant mothers.
2. How long can a test be done?
Digital and inkjet products more sensitive to the hormone hCG, they are able to recognize the conception held forth ο expected menstruation (4-5 days before the delay). Strip tests and tablets are used after the delay of critical days.
3. What time of day to do the test?
Try to do research after a night’s sleep. In the morning urine, all substances are concentrated, including the hCG hormone. The recently conceived conception is already visible in the morning test, and a study done in the afternoon or evening may indicate the absence of pregnancy. Modern test diagnostics are pretty accurate. If you become pregnant and your period did not arrive on time, you will see a positive result, regardless of the time of day.
4. How to decipher the results?
Positive tests highlight two stripes. Electronic – with a positive result, they can show a plus sign, the inscription Рregnant (Pregnant) or a smiling emoticon. An optional indicator is built into them, which displays the estimated period of conception (3 options of the week: 1-2, 2-3 and 3+).
5. Can a pregnancy test be wrong?
No test gives 100% accuracy. Rarely, but errors arise. Therefore, it is important to adhere to the instructions: soak the test drug to the desired level, stand and evaluate the result after a specified amount of time. Longer delay – higher reliability of the study. E If the answer is negative, but critical days did not start, repeat the test in 2-4 days.
A false-positive result (there is no pregnancy, but its presence is shown during the study) happens if a woman has taken drugs containing hCG (for example, with infertility). If menopause has arrived or is approaching, there are problems with the ovaries, tumors and other diseases, this also affects the outcome.
6. Can the test go bad?
Yes, they go bad. “Pregnant” tests have their own validity period, look at the end date of the drug when buying. Rapid tests can also deteriorate if stored improperly (too high or low temperature) or if the packaging is damaged.
7. Buy a cheap or expensive test?
Efficiency does not depend on the cost of the device, especially when you delay your adjustments! If you become pregnant, then the treasured two stripes will also show the budget test. It makes sense to buy expensive test drugs if you do not want to wait until the next menstruation begins.
8. Pregnancy test or hCG test?
Using pharmacy testing, you will instantly find out the answer. Laboratory urine or blood test for hCG will have to be expected for at least a full day. The blood count for total hCG is the most accurate. It is carried out for early diagnosis when home test studies are still uninformative.
9. How does the reception of progesterone at a pregnancy test on the st?
Progesterone does not affect rapid tests.
10. Two tests have different results: why?
The HCG level fluctuates during the day. The morning tester is already “seeing” the successful conception, but the day and night will not reveal it yet. Inkjet and digital tests are more susceptible to the hormone; they record the exact result earlier than tablets and strips.
