How do pregnancy tests work?

All pregnancy tests detect the hormone human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), which starts to be produced around 6 days after fertilisation. Most pregnancy tests come in a box that contains 1 or 2 long sticks. You wee on the stick and the result appears on the stick after a few minutes. All tests are slightly different, so always check the instructions.

A positive test result is almost certainly correct. A negative result is less reliable. If you get a negative result and still think you're pregnant, wait a few days and try again. Speak to your GP if you get a negative result after a second test but your period hasn't arrived.

More information on pregnancy tests - including a video about their accuracy - can be found on NHS Choices (external link).
