Accentuate the Positive: The Best Home Pregnancy Tests

An at-home pregnancy test is a chance to find out for yourself if a baby could be in your future. With a surprising level of accuracy, tests bought over-the-counter detect whether or not there is HCG in your urine. Human chorionic gonadotropin, or HCG, is the tell-tale sign you’re expecting since this is a hormone the body produces only after an egg has attached to the lining of the uterus. It is also blamed for some of the less desirable symptoms experienced during the first trimester of pregnancy.
