Being a mother is the most beautiful feeling. Whether this happiness is going to come or not, with the help of a pregnancy kit, a woman can easily know the good news in just 5 minutes while sitting at home.
It is very easy to confirm pregnancy with this pregnancy kit and the result is also 99% accurate.
A hormone test is done through a pregnancy kit
Dr. Goldie Kamboj, Gynecologist at Manipal Hospital, Patiala, told that there are 2 ways of pregnancy test: urine test or blood test. Whenever an egg gets fertilized in a woman’s body and goes to the uterus, only then pregnancy occurs.
As soon as you become pregnant, a special type of hormone is produced in the body, which is found in the body only during pregnancy. The name of this hormone is human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). This hormone can be easily identified from blood and urine only.
This hormone is detected on the pregnancy kit. 3 drops of urine are placed on the test window (middle strip) of the kit and kept for 5 minutes. There are 2 lines made on the kit.
Test line and control line. When both lines become dark, then it should be understood that the woman is pregnant. If 1 line comes then the test is negative. Test results from pregnancy kits are mostly correct.
Before proceeding further, let us know from the graphics how the result is seen from the pregnancy test kit:
If there is a cyst then false reading can come.
According to Dr. Goldie Kamboj, only 1% of the wrong results come from the pregnancy kit. This happens when a woman does not get periods on time. Due to this their ovulation is delayed. This also makes the egg fertile late. Even if such women do not have periods, the results are still negative.
In such a situation, the doctor advises them to test again later.
The light line comes when pregnancy is outside the uterus
Dr. Anuradha Kapoor, Gynecologist at Max Smart Super Specialty Hospital, Delhi, says that if a woman has an ectopic pregnancy i.e. pregnancy occurs in the fallopian tube outside the uterus, the pregnancy test card (PTC) shows a light line instead of a deep one.
Also, the woman has blood spotting and abdominal pain. If this happens, the doctor should be seen immediately.
Blood test necessary after pregnancy kit
A pregnancy kit only detects pregnancy, so after getting the test positive, a blood test should also be done in the hospital. The level of HCG is checked in this test. The advantage of this is that it is known whether the pregnancy is healthy or not.
Get yourself checked by a gynecologist after a self-examination
According to Dr. Anuradha Kapoor, the development of the fetus is seen in the serum beta HCT test (blood test) when the test kit results positive for the woman. In normal pregnancy, it increases to 60% in 48 hours.
If it is growing less than this then an ultrasound is done. This shows where the pregnancy is. Sometimes pregnancy occurs outside the uterus, which can prove to be dangerous.
Many times unmarried girls test themselves and after getting the result positive, they eat abortion pills on their own. If there is an ectopic pregnancy, they may bleed excessively. It can also be fatal for them.
