Was Your Pregnancy Test Wrong? All home pregnancy tests work basically the same way. Each testing kit is manufactured to alert the user to the presence of the pregnancy hormone, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, in the urine. While almost all brands of pregnancy testing kits claim to be 99.9% effective at picking up this hormone, why do we hear so many reports of both false negatives and false positive test results? Proper Use is Key While it should go without saying, it is absolutely necessary to follow the directions exactly as they are printed on the package insert that comes with the testing kits. Many women do not realize that even making one small change to the testing process, such as reading the test outside of the reading window, can alter results substantially. For the manufacturers to get FDA clearance on their testing mechanism, these instructions must be included and easy to follow. If you are unsure about how to use a particular testing kit, contact the customer service number that is printed on the instruction sheet. Don’t Test Too Soon Testing too early after ovulation will cause a negative result, even if conception has occurred. Some brands make claims that their kits are accurate up to two days before a missed period, but that isn’t the case with all users. Pregnancy hormones increase each day during the beginning days of pregnancy, so you may need to test the following day if you get a negative result but still think you are pregnant. Pregnancy Test Results If you test your urine and get a result that you were not expecting, you have a couple of options. First, wait until the next day and test on the first urine of the day. This means when you wake in the morning, use that first morning urine as your testing sample. The first urine of the day will have the best chance of performing accurately on testing mechanisms. Second, make an appointment to see your doctor. The physician will be able to tell you why the results came out the way they did and offer you information on what steps to take next. Keeping Yourself Healthy for Pregnancy If you are of child bearing age, you should consider taking a prenatal supplement to ensure that your body is ready to provide a healthy environment for a new baby. Even if pregnancy is not in your plans, surprises do happen and you will want to be prepared. Discuss these topics with your physician during your next appointment for more indepth information on pregnancy and health.
