Home pregnancy testing is very similar to qualitative urine hCG testing in the laboratory, but there are factors surrounding its use that are important to note.
First, home tests come with very specific directions that must be followed explicitly. If you are using a home test, follow the directions extremely carefully.
Second, home tests are sometimes done too soon after the missed menstrual cycle to result in a positive test - it takes 10 days after conception before the presence of hCG can be detected by the urine test. That is why a home test is sometimes negative when the test done by your doctor is positive - the doctor's test is often done several days later when hCG levels have become detectable.
All urine qualitative hCG tests should, if possible, be done on a first morning urine sample. Urine becomes much more dilute after ingestion of liquids (tea, coffee, juice, water, etc.) and urine hCG concentrations may become too low to register as positive.
Generally, when used correctly, the home test should produce the same result as the urine hCG test done by your doctor. Qualititative blood testing for hCG is more sensitive than urine hCG testing, so sometimes a blood test will indicate pregnancy when the urine test is negative. Quantitative hCG testing requires a blood sample and must be done in the laboratory.


sounds like you're pregnant. Morning sickness usually doesn't come until a few months into the pregnancy. You should go to a doctor or clinic so they can do a urine test.
