Pregnancy test can be done at home by using the home pregnancy test or by seeking medical help. The home pregnancy tests check for the level of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) in your urine. The sensitivity of the test to the presence of hCG is what makes the test more accurate. Most tests claim to be about 97% accurate if it is done according to the instructions. Each home pregnancy test will have it's own instructions and for best results we should do as it asks us to do rather than following how we think it works.
The usual steps are, collect the sample of urine, (preferably morning) and dip the tip of the strip into it for few seconds. Once this has dried, you can read the result of the test.

A pregnancy test can be performed on either blood or urine. A woman can buy a pregnancy test kit in most pharmacies and use it at home by taking a sample of her urine. Blood tests are usually done by a doctor’s appointment.
