Home pregnancy tests are only 50% reliable if you are not pregnant, but almost 100% reliable if you are pregnant. In other words, they are not very reliable. (They are much more likely to tell you that you are pregnant if you are not than to tell you are not pregnant if you are.)

It is better to see a doctor to have a blood test and ease your stress.

actually, home pregnancy tests can be quite accurate if taken after your missed period. the above information is slightly off in terms of false results. actually, tests are more likely to tell you you're NOT pregnant when you ARE (false-negatives), rather than you ARE pregnant when you're not (false-positives). false-positive results are very rare, while false-negatives are more common (and usually caused by testing too early or with diluted urine). if you follow the instructions provided with the test kits, they ARE pretty reliable. though, i agree with the above answerer that doctor's results are always the MOST accurate.
