  Pregnancy tests: Accuracy
How accurate pregnancy tests are?

When you use a Home Pregnancy Test (HPT), make sure that you follow the instructions carefully otherwise you risk reducing the accuracy. Brands promise an accuracy of 97-99%. Usual HPTs are able to give a response 6 days after the fertilization. If a woman has a positive result, she needs to see her doctor soon. He can confirm a positive HPT result with a blood test and a pelvic exam, because this is the only way to know for sure.
