Right Time For Pregnancy Test?
I want to ask the results of the test pack, if you buy a cheap one, can you see the results right away?…and it’s best to use the test pack at what time of the day.. Thank you
The test pack is an instrument that is often relied on by couples to determine whether someone is pregnant or not. The way the test pack works is to detect the beta-HCG hormone found in the urine of pregnant women. This hormone itself is produced by the placenta when there has been implantation of an egg cell that is fertilized by a sperm cell and then develops. Testpacks can be used even from the first day of missed menstruation, and certain brands can show positive results within 8 days of conception.
However, the weakness of the test pack is that there are false positives and false negatives. A false positive is when the result is positive in a non-pregnant condition, which could be due to Mola disease. While a false negative is a negative result in pregnancy, this can occur in early pregnancy where hormone levels are not yet high enough to be detected by a test pack. Therefore, whatever the test pack results, we recommend that you confirm it with an ultrasound examination with a gynecologist as well as consult what needs to be done if you are indeed pregnant. Here we attach an article about the test pack. Hope it is useful.
