Home pregnancy tests are quite accurate. If anything, they give false negatives because it might not have picked up enough of the pregnancy hormone but positives are usually accurate. If you want to be absolutely sure, take another test and if that one too says you are pregnant, count on it.

Home pregnancy tests are 99% accurate when taken correctly. It's important to be sure that you are not testing too early and that you use first morning urine. Not following the directions included with the test can cause undesired results.
