Pregnancy Tests

If you believe you might be pregnant, the first thing to do is to take a pregnancy test. Every type of pregnancy test you take, whether it's in your doctor's office or over the counter, detects your level of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in your urine or blood. As soon as the embryo attaches to your uterus, hCG can be detected. This hormone is only present in pregnant women, so any sign of hCG is a sure sign that you're pregnant.

You can take a home pregnancy test, although you'll need to confirm positive results with your doctor. Home pregnancy tests are extremely accurate, and most of the time when a women gets a positive result from a test she is pregnant.

It's a good idea to buy two tests, and retake the test a few days later if you suspect you're pregnant.

If you've done a home pregnancy test that's come back positive, or believe that you could be pregnant, you should schedule an appointment with your physician as soon as possible. Blood tests performed by your docto...
