The anticipation is killing you. Are you pregnant—here are 15 signs you might be? You go to the store and overview the sea of options and brands. Which is best? How would they function? Is there additional to it then simply peeing on a stick? And is it OK to purchase the test after work and run home and do it right away? We have your questions answered . How do home pregnancy tests function? Home pregnancy tests measure the amount of hCG in your urine. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin , the hormone made by cells that assistance shape the placenta. Say you have a normal 28-day cycle, you ovulate on day 14 and the egg is fertilized a day or two later. The incipient organism develops for several days, at that point implants in the uterus and the placenta frames. At that point, hCG starts to get into the bloodstream and filters through the kidneys. That's when it can be picked up in urine (in this example, around day 25 or 26 ). How would I take it? Each pregnancy test has its own specifics—so make certain to read the instructions carefully. When you are testing, always check the control panel to confirm the test actually worked. "A few people complete a pregnancy test, wait two or three minutes, don't see a positive and toss it in the garbage when they ought to have waited longer," says Dan Nayot , a fertility specialist at the Toronto Center for Advanced Reproductive Technology . What time of day would it be a good idea for me to test? Early in your pregnancy—either a little earlier or when your period is expected—use the urine from your first pee of the day. "During rest you aren't drinking, so your urine is more concentrated and you pick up the hCG all the more readily," says Nayot . In any case, when you've missed your period, the levels of hCG in your urine are quite high, and you can test anytime of the day . How to use pregnancy test kit

A home test can distinguish a pregnancy before you've missed your period (these are the earliest signs of pregnancy), however if you wait until your period is expected you'll be increasingly certain of an accurate outcome. If you have an irregular period (that is, you get your period each four to a month and a half or sporadically) Nayot proposes doing the test one week past when you think ought to get your period . Can the outcome not be right ? False negatives are more typical than false positives, and happen when you test too early, or if you've done the test off-base. If you get a negative, wait a couple of days and, if you still haven't gotten your period, test again . A false positive means the test has identified hCG , yet you aren't pregnant. "This can happen if you are going through fertility treatment and you get hCG as part of the protocol," explains Nayot . You can also get a positive outcome with an early miscarriage or biochemical pregnancy: the test still picks up hCG in your urine, however the pregnancy is never again viable . I got a positive outcome—now what ? If you've recently missed your period and got a positive pregnancy test result, congratulations! Make an appointment with your doctor who will arrange a ultrasound to take place when you're around six to seven weeks Best pregnancy test kit . She may also complete a blood test to check your hCG levels. (You can estimate your due date using an online calculator if you know the date your last period started. Remember due dates are calculated based on when your ovulation cycle started, not when the egg is fertilized.) This ultrasound will check if the pregnancy is inside the uterus—rather than ectopic—how many pregnancies (you could be carrying twins!), and if the pregnancy is viable. It will also confirm how far along you are. "

When you have that positive pregnancy test, it ought to be a sign to take care of yourself," says Nayot . "Continue to take your prenatal vitamins, avoid alcohol and eat well .“ Brands on the market—What separates them All home pregnancy tests use the same innovation, says Nayot , yet some make the outcomes all the more clear, by, for example, showing "Pregnant" rather than relying on a line, or showing you how far along you are. This is what's available : Clearblue 1. Clearblue Advanced with Weeks Estimator will show—if the test is positive—"Pregnant" on the display, along with an estimate of the quantity of weeks since ovulation, which it does by measuring the amount of hCG in your urine. 2. The Double-Check and Date kit has two tests, one to check whether you're pregnant, and another that will confirm in, and reveal to you how far along you are. 3. Clearblue Plus is all the more ergonomically friendly, with a wider tip making it easier to catch the urine stream . Clearblue claims 99 percent accuracy on all their tests if you use them from the day of your missed period, yet states you can test four days prior to your period.

First Response claims its Early Result Pregnancy Test can distinguish "scant" traces of hCG , which makes you able to test six days before your missed period.

The Digital Pregnancy Test also promises you an outcome six days before your period, and gives you a "yes or no" answer in the display window.

Different Brands The Life Brand sold at Shoppers Drug Mart, the Equate brand sold at Walmart , along with various dollar store pregnancy tests that are approved by Health Canada claim similar accuracy rates and testing times. Remember, however, that dollar store tests may not be held up to the same batch control testing that the more expensive tests are, and, accordingly, may not be as accurate . WHAT THE RESULTS MEAN A positive outcome (2 Lines) indicates that your urine contains hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin ) and you can assume you are pregnant. You ought to counsel your doctor who is best able to additionally advise you on legitimate prenatal care. If you are taking medication, phone him or her immediately and make beyond any doubt it is safe for your baby . A negative outcome (1 Line in the "Control Zone" ) means that no hCG has been distinguished and you can assume you are not pregnant. If seven days passes and your menstrual period is still delayed, you ought to do another BFP Pregnancy Test. If the outcome is still negative in the later test, there is little chance that you are pregnant.
