What Is A Pregnancy Test Kit?
As the name suggests, home pregnancy test kits let you know if you are pregnant or not with a simple test done at home. These kits are easily available at any chemist shop near you or online. You can buy these test kits without prescription (hence known as over the counter pregnancy test kits) and test yourself for pregnancy at the comfort of your place.
These home kits measure the presence of a hormone known as human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in the urine. Unlike the laboratory test for pregnancy confirmation, these tests are a qualitative test, which only measures the presence of the hormone and reveal the test results are positive or negative.
