Home pregnancy tests Home pregnancy tests are sensitive enough to provide a reading that is about 99 per cent accurate, if instructions are followed correctly. Home pregnancy tests that are currently available include Clearblue One Step, Clearview HGC, Crystal clear, Discover, Dotest Confirm, First Response, Fortel and Pregnosis. Pregnancy testing can be carried out in 2 ways: some test sticks are held in mid-stream urine, others need a urine sample which is tested with a dip-and-read stick. If using a dipand-read product, make sure that the urine is collected in a clean glass or plastic container. Urine samples should be tested immediately after collection. HCG is often at its strongest concentration first thing in the morning, so is a good time to take the test.
