In brief: Determines Pregnancy

Urine pregnancy tests are available at pharmacies, grocery & convenience stores.
They can be done in the privacy of your home. All pregnancy tests are based upon measurement of the hormone -- human chorionic gonadotrophin or HCG -- which is made after a fertilized egg implants in the uterus. Pregnancy can be determined as early as the first day of the missed period with 97%-99% accuracy.

In brief: Pregnancy test

It is usually a urine dip stick that will detect the pregnancy hormone, hcg, in the urine.
They are simple, easy, and can be done at home.
