How soon will a home pregnancy test become positive?
The store-bought regency tests have become very sensitive and accurate over the past few years. Some tests can detect HCG (the pregnancy hormone) in your urine even before your period is late. We recommend home testing no earlier than 2 days after your missed cycle. If your home test has borderline results or if you get conflicting information from multiple tests, you can always speak to our nurses to set up an in-office urine or blood pregnancy test for confirmation. Once your test is positive, please call to set up an appointment with your doctor within a few weeks of your missed period.
