Different Types of Pregnancy Tests

  • A urine test. This is an at-home pregnancy test that you would take with an at-home pregnancy test kit. This test involves urinating on a test stick which then read results through hormones found in the urine. Urine tests detect a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). This hormone is released shortly after a fertilized egg attaches to the uterine lining, which then forms the placenta and releases HCG through your body's blood and urine. These tests can be bought over-the-counter and vary in brands and price.
  • A blood test. This is done at a doctors office under the supervision of a medical professional. The blood test is similar to the urine test in that it detects the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) in the blood. However, blood tests are more sensitive to picking up HCG than urine tests. These test involves taking a small sample of blood which are then analyzed by a doctor or medical professional.  

How Accurate Are Pregnancy Tests?

  • Most at-home pregnancy tests claim to be 99% accurate, however, results can be inaccurate based on when you take the test. If you take an at-home pregnancy and it is negative, take the test one week after your missed period for more accurate results.
  • Blood tests taken at a doctors office are more accurate regardless of when you have the test taken.  

What's Next?

  • If you get a positive test result from an at-home pregnancy test, contact your primary care provider and seek confirmation to  determine best care for you moving forward.
  • Make healthy lifestyle changes. When talking with your primary care provider they may recommend lifestyle changes such as limiting caffeine, removing smoking and alcohol consumption, getting enough rest, and eating nutrient dense foods.
