Taking A Pregnancy Test At Night

December 21, 2021

If you wonder whether to take a pregnancy test at night or morning, you have come to the right place. Most couples trying to conceive a baby are often concerned about doing everything right to make sure that they are not missing out on anything. Home pregnancy tests are designed to rely on the level of human chorionic gonadotropin in your urine to detect a pregnancy. There is a rise in the production of this hormone in the placenta during the first eight to twelve weeks of pregnancy.

Although you may take a pregnancy test at night, the test may be a false negative since urine tends to be more diluted at night. This is why doctors recommend taking a pregnancy test in the morning, especially in the first couple of weeks of pregnancy.

Taking a Pregnancy Test at Night vs Morning

Since pregnancy tests rely on the HCG level in your urine, it is a good idea to take the test when your urine is concentrated. Taking the test in the morning enables you to use the pregnancy test on concentrated urine, which will have a sufficient amount of HCG or not to determine whether you are pregnant or not. While taking it at night may lead to a false negative. This is why sometimes you wind up having to do more than one test to confirm your pregnancy.

If you wonder, is taking a pregnancy test at night bad, then it is always a good idea to wait till the morning to get a confirmed result. This will give a chance for sufficient HCG build-up in your urine for a positive pregnancy test. If you do wind up taking a pregnancy test at night, you may have to follow up with a retest in the morning if you get a negative result at night.
