How Do Home Pregnancy test work?

How to Do Home Pregnancy Test?

Each HPT has its own instructions. You have to follow it carefully. Most of the test has 1 test device and 1 disposable dropper. The urine sample is to be collected in a clean, dry container and dropped with the dropper on the test device. The first urine sample of the day should be used (early morning urine) as it is undiluted with much water. Then wait for 5 mins and check the readings.

How soon you can take a Home Pregnancy test?

You can take a test as soon as you miss your first period date. For some people it may give negative reading because of low hCG level, then wait for few more days and check again.
