When can I take pregnancy test

Although it'll be hard to wait even a few days to find out whether there's a baby in your future, you may be wasting your money if you start peeing on sticks the morning after you hope you conceived.

One week after conception, there is hCG in your urine — but not enough for standard HPTs to pick up. That means if you test just seven days after ovulation, you're likely to get a "false negative" even if you're pregnant; there's just not enough hCG in your urine yet.

Standard pregnancy tests can be taken between six to 12 days after fertilization, when implantation occurs.

What is Implantation?

Implantation is the attachment of the fertilized egg when the fertilized egg (now called a blastocyst) has completed its travel through the fallopian tube and adheres to the lining of the uterus. Implantation happens about a week after ovulation with a range of 6-12 days after fertilization.

Homemade Pregnancy Test With Sugar

You will need to put 2 to 3 tablespoon of sugar into a small bowl. Then, you should add the urine to the mixture. If the sugar begins to dissolve, you’re likely not pregnant. However, if the mixture clumps together, you are likely pregnant!

It is recommended that you take this test as soon as you awake in the morning. This will help to ensure that your urine is more potent and concentrated.

Homemade Pregnancy Test With Soap

Collect your urine in the morning after getting up from the bed. Take a piece of soap and pour the urine on it. If the soap forms bubbles, then it indicates a positive result and if there is no bubble on the soap, then the result is negative.

It is recommended that you take this test as soon as you awake in the morning. This will help to ensure that your urine is more potent and concentrated.

Only Urine DIY Pregnancy Test

With your own urine and without adding anything to it, you can also test your pregnancy. After getting up from the bed, the first thing in the morning is to collect your urine and store it in a flat surfaced jar. Keep this jar undisturbed for 24 hours. And after that if you see a thin layer on the top of the urine, then it means that you have already started your journey towards motherhood. And if there is no change in the urine, then it means that you are not pregnant.

It is recommended that you take this test as soon as you awake in the morning. This will help to ensure that your urine is more potent and concentrated.



What is a urine pregnancy test?

A home pregnancy test measures the presence of a specific hormone of pregnancy in your urine: the human chorionic gonadotropin or hCG. The amount of hCG in your body doubles every 2-3 days from the implantation of the fertilized egg.

How and when to test for pregnancy?

The test can usually be done at any time of the day. It does not necessary need to be done with the first morning urine. However, you should avoid drinking too much liquid before the test. Place the end of the stick a few seconds in fresh urine; after a few minutes it will then display a plus or minus or an extra sign indicating if you're pregnant or not.

After ovulation, the egg will be released in the Fallopian tube and reach your uterus. It can be fertilized by the sperm in the Fallopian tube or after it reaches the uterus: it’s called the conception. A couple of days after conception, it will then nest in the uterus: it’s called the implantation. It is estimated that something goes wrong for the fertilized egg in 20% of pregnancies and end up in a miscarriage, also called spontaneous abortion. If the egg does not develop correctly, the body will fail the implantation, and will evacuate it like a menstruation.

How accurate are pregnancy tests?

Home pregnancy tests from good brands are normally over 99% accurate when they are used from the day your period is due. The accuracy of a pregnancy test will vary depending on when you do the test.

Please remember that your due date is only an estimate. On average only 5% of births take place exactly on the estimated due date. Most are born within a week either side of the estimated due date.
