Yes and no. All home pregnancy tests are decting the same hormone, HCG, a hormone that is produced by the developing placenta. However, all home pregnancy tests do not detect HCG at the same levels. So some brands may show positive results sooner than others.

Are at home pregnancy tests always correct?

Almost NOTHING is ALWAYS correct.Home pregnancy tests are around 85 % so use three from different manufacturers and you are approaching 99% if they all give the same result. If not then you will have to find out why.


What is the right time to determined pregnancy before a missed period?

Pregnancy can be determined by todays over the counter tests as early as 3-5 days after fetilization, which is roughly the same time as ovulation (egg release). Therefore, its a question of when the person ovulated, and not when the missed period is. Home pregnancy tests can be positive even before a missed period.


How soon after conception can a home pregnancy test can detect pregnancy?

Some of today's early pregnancy tests can test as soon as 10 days after ovulation (which is usually around the same day that you had sex, it could possibly be 2-3 after sex but never before). The safest bet is to wait 19 days after having sex. If you still test negative, you are probably not pregnant.


Can you use the same home pregnancy test twice?

Nope. They only work once.


Is a negative blood pregnancy test 49 days after intercourse accurate?

There are two kinds of blood tests for pregnancy tests -- quantitative and qualitative. Assuming you've waited long enough (much less than 49 days), and the test is done properly by the lab, the quantitative test is very accurate. The qualitative blood test is about the same accuracy as urine tests. Even the home urine tests are 97% accurate. So if you took the quantitative blood test you can be very sure it's right. Even with the other tests 97% is pretty accurate. I suspect the error rate in blood labs is greater than that.
