How Much do Home Pregnancy Tests Cost?

By MomMed | 21 July 2022 | 0 Comments

There are many different brands of pregnancy tests on the market. How do you know which one to purchase? Why are some so much more than others? Does the cost always reflect the quality?

If you are looking to purchase home pregnancy tests, especially from an online source, here are a few tips to keep in mind.

How Home Pregnancy Tests Detect Pregnancy

Home pregnancy tests all detect pregnancy in the same way. By use of a special testing strip, they check for the presence of a certain hormone known as hCG in the urine of the tester. This hormone starts to build rapidly once a fertilized egg implants in the uterus, and is usually detectable around the time of a missed period.

Most pregnancy tests display a positive result by a special ink that darkens in the presence of hCG. Other tests use a digital marker that uses a small display to show “pregnant” or “not pregnant.”

Test Strips vs. Midstream Collection

You may notice that there are a couple different types of pregnancy tests available for purchase. One is a small test strip or collection tray that requires the user to collect urine and either drop a small amount into the tray, or dip the test strip into the urine.

The other type of test, known as a midstream test, can be simply held by its handle directly in the stream of urine, without the need to collect it first.
Both types of tests are available over the counter or online at affordable prices. Testing strips are often less expensive than a midstream test, and tests that have a digital readout typically cost a little more than those with a simple ink display.

Early Detection Tests and How They’re Different

Some pregnancy tests will be labeled as an early detection test. This simply means that they detect lower levels of hCG in the urine, and are able to detect pregnancy up to 5 days before a missed period in some cases.

Early detection tests are available as both test strips and midstream tests, and function in the same way as a regular test. If you are trying to conceive and want to test as soon as possible, make sure to check for the early detection label on whichever tests you choose.

Do Some Brands Work Better than Others?

Because home pregnancy tests come in a range of prices, you may be wondering if some brands work better than others. Typically, because all home pregnancy tests function in the same way, the price difference is purely due to name brand mark-ups. Unless you have a need to purchase a digital display test, using more affordable options will not affect the results of your pregnancy test.
