You can buy a home pregnancy test in a drugstore without a prescription. The cost depends on the brand. But most tests are relatively inexpensive -- from $8 to $20.

Home pregnancy tests are quick and easy to use. They are also very accurate if you carefully follow directions. These pregnancy tests all work in a similar way. You test the urine in one of these ways:

  • Hold a stick in your urine stream.

  • Collect urine in a cup and then dip a stick into it.

  • Collect urine in a cup and use a dropper to put urine into another container.

With all of these techniques, you need to wait a few minutes before seeing the results. Results may show up as a line, a color, or a symbol such as a "+" or "-" sign. Digital tests produce the words "pregnant" or "not pregnant."

If you have any questions about the pregnancy test or the results, call your doctor or the 800 telephone number listed with the home pregnancy test.
