A home pregnancy test is very accurate when the test is performed 3-4 weeks after intercourse. A better method of testing would be via the quantitative beta hcg pregnancy blood test which is 100% accurate and can be performed as early as 5-7 days after intercourse.
IT may,it depends on when your period it expected. It is more accurate to take the pregnancy test at the most,Five days before your missed period. It will be most accurate to take the pregnancy test the day before your missed period.
Yes, but if your menstrual blood comes in contact with the test strip it will not give you accurate results. If you have your period, you might not be pregnant. You should wait fourteen days after intercourse to take a home pregnancy test and get accurate results.
I am not sure about a blood test, but at 5 days before the expected period a home pregnancy test is 51% accurate. By one day before it is 95% accurate. A woman's hCG levels double every two days until about 7-12 weeks of pregnancy.
Some home pregnancy tests can give you an accurate answer up to 5 days before your missed period. The later you wait the more accurate the results. Save your money and just wait until you are late to test.
