How to Take a Pregnancy Test at Home

LIVE pregnancy test results: How to take a pregnancy test at home.

In this video, I offer a few tips and demonstrate how to take a pregnancy test at home. I show a side-by-side comparison of a positive pregnancy test result vs a negative pregnancy test result. I also show a time lapse of the pregnancy test progress, and I explain the control vs test lines as well.

For the demonstration, I used a pregnancy test called “Assured,” which I bought at the Dollar Tree. (Yes, those Dollar Tree pregnancy tests actually work, and they accurately tested positive for both of my pregnancies!)

Pregnancy tests like the one I used in this video detect a hormone called hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). This hormone is released after the placenta attaches to the uterine wall.

It is best to take a pregnancy test in the morning, as that is when hCG leves are supposed to be most concentrated.
