Buy a Pregnancy Test and Find Certainty
When the egg cell is fertilized, a woman is considered pregnant. The best way to check whether this process has happened to you is to buy and perform a pregnancy test.
This test measures the hormone beta-hCG (beta-human chorionic gonadotropin) in the urine. The pregnancy hormone can also be detected in the blood. After fertilization, this substance is formed from the cells of the later placenta in the uterus.
Pregnancy tests are very sophisticated these days and offer show with an accuracy of 90-99% if a woman is pregnant. Early pregnancy tests manage to detect the pregnancy hormone beta-hCG in the morning urine of a pregnant woman around two days before the expected menstrual period occurs.
However, you will receive reliable evidence from the second day after your missed period. If you are not menstruating, it might be a signal to you that something in your body and your cycle is changing.
Since the concentration of the hormone beta-hCG is particularly high in the morning urine, it is advisable to carry out the urine test after getting up or after a long period of sleep.
A positive test result is almost always a guarantee that you are pregnant. Only very rare exceptions create a false positive result. Read here what a false positive result is...
How do I Use a Pregnancy Test?
The test is easy to use. The test stick of the urine test is immersed in a glass of urine for a few seconds or held into the urine stream. For the recommended duration, please refer to the information on the packaging of the early pregnancy test. A little later, the urine reacts with the special detection medium and causes stripes to appear in the control window and in the actual test window.
There is always one stripe in the control field. If another line appears in the other window, the result can be interpreted as pregnant with 90-99% certainty. Depending on how far the pregnancy has progressed, the more meaningful the test result of the reaction between the stick and the urine sample.
Info: It is important, however, to always read the package insert of the pregnancy test carefully in order to avoid any misinformation and incorrect results!
The exact display of the lines in the result field varies from test to test. For example, in some pregnancy tests, the second line is displayed horizontally to create a cross.
There are also digital pregnancy tests that simply display the words pregnant or not pregnant instead of lines and have an integrated week indicator.
Increase Your Chances of Conceiving
If you want to get pregnant and are currently not taking the pill, an ovulation test is also a good option for a planned pregnancy. This allows you to determine your fertile days around your ovulation in order to target and fulfill your desire for children.
It is also worth keeping an ovulation calendar and using this in combination with the ovulation test to plan specific days and thus achieve a more favorable starting point.
Signs of Pregnancy - How Pregnancy Can Also Be Recognized
If you are of childbearing age, sexually active, and fertile, and unsure whether you could be pregnant, then it might be advisable to buy and perform a pregnancy test. There are imprecise as well as probable signs that indicate pregnancy.
If there are certain signs, such as feeling the child's movements and the like, the pregnancy test is unnecessary and you should visit the doctor as soon as possible. In this case, the pregnancy has already been confirmed and a test is therefore superfluous.
Inaccurate signs often come from the personal perspective and the way the respective woman feels. Probable signs, on the other hand, are based on anamnesis (medical history) and examinations, but not on direct evidence. The following signs could indicate an undetected pregnancy:
1. Inaccurate Indications
- appetite disorder (cravings) and unusual food cravings (for example strange combinations of sweet and salty)
- dizziness and lightheadedness
- morning sickness or vomiting
- greater need for sleep
- increased salivation
- feeling of tension in the breasts (enlargement)
- increased vaginal discharge
- strong urge to urinate and frequent urination
2. Likely signs
- absence of expected menstrual period
- emerging stretch marks
- premature milk production
- hyperpigmentation (browning) of the skin
- increased basal body temperature (measured temperature immediately after sleeping / waking up)
- bluish discoloration of the vagina and labia (lividity)
- changes in the cervix
In these cases it is advisable to buy a pregnancy test or to take a blood test from your gynecologist. A fetus can only be detected from the sixth week of pregnancy by means of an ultrasound examination. If you notice changes shortly after you have missed your menstrual period, you should buy a pregnancy test at the pharmacy or simply order it from Medicalcorner24®.
After an examination, the gynecologist can calculate the current week of pregnancy in case of an existing pregnancy. He will then give you further information about the course of a pregnancy and advise you on birth preparations.
If there is any risk of an ectopic pregnancy or a miscarriage, your doctor will provide you with intensive support and give you additional advice.
Wrong Result in the Pregnancy Test - Possible Causes
How reliable is a pregnancy test? There are many reasons why a pregnancy test might show an incorrect result on the test strip. Either the early pregnancy test was stored incorrectly, has already expired or was used incorrectly. When purchasing a pregnancy test, it should be stored and used correctly.
For specific instructions on how to proceed and how to perform the test, follow the instructions on the package insert.
The causes of incorrect test results might have the following reasons:
The False Negative Test Result:
- too early - the pregnancy test was done at a time when the urine beta-hCG level was not high enough
- too much - the amount of urine the pregnancy test was supposed to check was too much
- too long - the test strip was held in the filled urine cup for too long
- too late - the level of beta-hCG has dropped again because the pregnancy was already too far advanced
The False Positive Test Result:
- abortion - fertilization through the implantation of the egg did take place, but at an early point in time there was an incorrect development of the fruit system, which is known as a very early miscarriage
- cancer - several types of cancer increase the level of beta-hCG
- kidney failure - with kidney failure (for example after menopause) the beta-hCG can be increased
- medication - various medications that contain hCG can affect the results of a pregnancy test
