Top 10 Best Home Pregnancy Tests: Get Positive Test Results Earlier

Could I Be Pregnant?

“Could I be pregnant?” This is a common question asked on many Trying to Conceive (TTC) forums across the Internet. Finding the best home pregnancy tests can help to find the answer to this question sooner. Home pregnancy tests work by measuring the amount of human chorionic gonadotoprin (hCG) in the urine. Depending on the sensitivity of the home pregnancy test, some women can find out as early as 6 days past ovulation (dpo) if they are pregnant.

New Choice does not use a stick dipped in a cup, rather it provides a dropper and the test stick. The user must provide their own collection cup. The instructions say to use after your missed period, and many people can get positive readings the day of their missed period so long as their period tracking is accurate.
