Pregnancy Test Strips - Should You Trust its Results?

A Life-Changing Event

Discovering whether one is pregnant is one of the most life-changing events in someone’s life.  Because of the gravity of this momentous event, it’s even more important determining the validity of said results.  How accurate are HCG Pregnancy Test Strips?

What is HCG?

HCG or Human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone.  The HCG is produced very soon after egg implantation.  The HCG Pregnancy Test strip works by detecting the HCG in urine samples to generate positive or negative results.


Not only are the HCG Pregnancy Test Strips one the safest way to determine pregnancy at home, but it is also an accurate way to determine results quickly.  These results are 99% accurate if used properly.  Some have experienced false-positive results.  How can one avoid that?

False Positives

Statistically, if one tests negative for HCG then they generally are not pregnant.  However when false positives have been reported, that is, when an individual is not pregnant but the test results show positive, this can undoubtedly be cause for concern.  How does this happen?  There can be many reasons.  For instance, certain drugs or fertility medications can cause a fluctuation of hormone levels which will appear in the urine causing an HCG test to read positive.

There have even been circumstances where individuals have taken HCG tests after a miscarriage causing a false positive.  Here at 12 Panel Now, we encourage those who are concerned about their test results to speak to their Primary Care Doctor for more insight regarding their pregnancy.

You should wait to take a pregnancy test until the week after your missed period for the most accurate result.  If you don’t want to wait until you’ve missed your period, you should wait at least one to two weeks after you had sex.
