    False pregnancy

    What can be the factors that cause a pregnancy test to go wrong?

    Testing too early can be a complete waste of the testing kit. This can be due to a specific hormone present in the blood known as human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG). This hormone does not appear in urine until after a fertilized egg implants in your uterine wall. The appearance takes place usually 6 to 8 days before missing periods but the amount is almost undetectable in the initial days but it gets doubled every 24 hours. You can use a suitable early pregnancy test kit.
