    They are one of the most accurate biological tests going, sensitivity and specificity both >97%, actual performance depends on the brand.

    Yes they're incredibly accurate. If not, go to the docs, and they'll test your blood for you, or take 3 more. Or wait a week, then take another.

    ^ what he said


    I think the digital ones are a bit more sensitive to the HCG hormone than other brands so can detect pregnancy if earlier, but if taken correctly it's rare for them to be wrong


    what was the result op, good news??

    I believe when my mum was pregnant with me the chemist said that if they give a negative result then they can be inaccurate, but that if they are positive they definitely are. Don't know if this is necessarily true but he said it to stop them buying another so lost a sale through it :p:.
