Can Home Pregnancy Tests Be Wrong?

Can home pregnancy tests be wrong? If you take the test the morning you wake
up with regret, yes, it is too soon to know. There are early pregnancy tests. Early tests still won’t detect anything
if you test it before the pregnancy hormones reach detectable levels in your blood or urine. That’s what the tests are for – detecting
the hormones. If they say it can get results as soon as
a week before your period, it will show negative eight days before and likely seven days before,
though such tests are usually accurate by the day of your period. So the pregnancy test will be wrong if I test
too soon. And the pregnancy tests do best when the urine
is the most concentrated, so pee on it first thing in the morning. The results later in
the day are less likely to be accurate. This is where one of those digital pregnancy
tests seems like a good investment. As long as it is not flashing error, error
in response to being held in your shaking hands. Just wait a day or two for the hormone
levels to go up. By the time this test gives me results, the
doctor’s tests will tell me that’s the reason for my long term stomach bug. At least the stomach bug turns into a cute
little baby at the end. Another reason the pregnancy test may give poor results is that
you are not using it right. Peeing on a stick should not be rocket science. If you’re using a cup you rinsed out with
water and the traces of that diluted the urine test results, it could come up wrong. Or the test could be defective. That’s why they have boxes with two or more.
If one is wrong, you use the other, and if one is positive, you try the other just in
case the first is wrong. I’ve heard it can give positive results
and then negative results. It is estimated that half of all pregnancies
end in the first trimester, before many women knew they were pregnant. Your hormone levels
could spike with the implantation before dropping off when the embryo passes away. Should I get one of those more accurate tests? If you’re pregnant and have not miscarried,
the hormone levels will go up double digits day after day for the next few days, so you’ll
get more accuracy just waiting a little while longer. Though they can be wrong one percent of the
time or so. So buy three by different manufacturers so
you can either lose the excuse that lot was bad or scream a lot because they are all positive.
