About this item
A home urinary pregnancy test (UPT) is a simple and convenient way to determine if you are pregnant. It works by detecting the presence of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), a hormone produced by the placenta after a fertilized egg has implanted in the uterus. They are generally accurate if used correctly, but it is important to confirm the result with a healthcare professional. Home pregnancy tests can detect pregnancy as early as a few days after a missed period, but for the most accurate results, it is recommended to wait at least one week after a missed period before taking the test.
