How does a pregnancy test work?
A pregnancy test shows positive when the HCG hormone is found in the urine. The HCG hormone increases daily as soon as you conceive. It takes approximately 14-21 days after conception for enough of the HCG hormone to show positive on a pregnancy test.
When should I take a pregnancy test?
Since pregnancy tests function by measuring HCG, it's importnant that enough time has elapsed for this hormone to be detected. Taking a pregnancy test too soon before hormone levels increase can resullt in what's called a "false negative." This means that the test shows negative even though a person is actually pregnant. It is recommended that you wait until after you have missed a period before taking a pregnancy test. This will help to reduce the chances of receiving a "false negative."
