Home Pregnancy Test (cont.)

Results

Patient Comments

The accuracy of the home pregnancy test depends on how well you follow the instructions and interpret the results. If you mishandle or misunderstand the test kit, you may get the wrong results.

You may be testing yourself too early in your cycle. So, you could be pregnant but not yet producing enough hCG to show up on the home use test. This could be a particular problem if you have irregular periods or miscalculate the date of your last period.
