How does Pregakem work?

Pregakem detects the presence of pregnancy hormone (hCG - human chorionic gonadotropin) in the urine. This hormone is found in urine only when one is pregnant.

How accurate is the Pregakem pregnancy test result?

Pregakem pregnancy test is 99% accurate. The accuracy of the test majorly depends on two factors:

A) How accurately you follow the instructions.

B) When you perform the test.

When can I perform the pregnancy test with Pregakem?

You can perform pregnancy test using Pregakem pregnancy detection kit on the missed day of period or later. Though it is advised to perform the test after one week of missed periods in order to obtain best results. The reason is hCG level increases rapidly during early pregnancy.

Can I perform test before first day of expected period?

This is not supposed to be the right time to perform the test. The test can be performed as early as on the 6th day before expected period but chances of getting the accurate result are very less. It’s because the pregnancy hormone (hCG) levels won’t be as sufficient as to diagnose a positive result. If you get a positive result then consult your doctor. If you get a negative result wait for one week and repeat the test.

Where to drop the urine on the test device to know the result?

The process is very simple. All you need to do is take fresh urine sample with the help of dropper and put only 3 drops of urine into the sample well marked ‘S’ on the test device. Now, you are ready to know the result.

Can I take two tests at a time?

Definitely, you can perform two tests one after the other, but use fresh device each time.

The first urine in the morning contains the highest level of pregnancy hormone (hCG - human chorionic gonadotropin) in it. That’s why it is always recommended to take pregnancy test early morning and that too with first urine in the morning.

How soon after a missed period can I perform a home pregnancy test and get an accurate result?

How to keep track of ovulation?

Monthly cycle in women is considered to begin from first of menstrual cycle to first day of next period. Average time of cycle is between 28-32 days, but it may vary. First day of the last menstrual period (LMP) or by calculating 12-16 days from the next expected period is the way to calculate the cycle. In most of women, ovulation takes place between 9th-15th day from the start date of period. This is the most fertile time of women’s cycle, hence chances of getting pregnant are much higher if one had unprotected sex. Ovulation can occur at various times. The ovulation day varies during each cycle.
