Ways To Check If You Are Successfully Pregnant Blood Tests Home Pregnancy Tests

Dear mums, we can imagine the jitters, nerves, and anticipation that can go with a pregnancy test. There are two main ways of getting an answer.

Lab-based blood tests

Testing blood to confirm a pregnancy is the formal, established way. It requires you to visit a pathology lab and giving a blood sample. After taking the sample, the path lab return results in a day or two. Pregnancy tests that use blood samples have proved to be more than 99% accurate. If the tests check for hCG levels, they can reveal the progress of pregnancy as well.

Home-use pregnancy tests

Blood tests are highly reliable, but they involve a lab visit followed by waiting for a couple of days. In contrast, home-use pregnancy testsrely on urine samples and are easy to use, allow control over time and place, and give privacy. They have become the first choice for many women to get a quick reading on pregnancy.

These inexpensive, disposable kits are available over-the-counter at any chemist. They have become so accurate that blood tests are rarely used any more for confirming pregnancy.
