Actually, you don't really need to use first morning urine when taking a pregnancy test. And yes, you can still get the same accurate result. How? is-it-time-to-test.jpgIt's all about concentration -- that is, how concentrated your urine is. Pee-on-a-stick pregnancy tests look for human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), a hormone only present during pregnancy. The more concentrated your urine, the more hCG there will be in the sample. The more hCG in the sample, the better chance of you getting a positive result if you're actually pregnant... and less of a chance of a negative result due to dilution. In the morning, typically you haven't been drinking anything and haven't peed for several hours, so therefore, your urine is strong. Strong first-morning urine is easy for most women to manage, and therefore is the method of choice. However, if you can recreate these same conditions at another time of day, you're good to go. What does that take? Just hold off on going to the bathroom for at least four hours, and cut down on your liquid intake for the duration. (You only need a little bit of urine for the pregnancy test, so there's no need to drink a little extra to make sure you have enough.) A super simple way to tell if your pee is potent: Concentrated urine will clearly be lemon yellow, versus the pale yellow/clear urine you will have when you're well-hydrated. Two things that are just as important as using mighty urine: 1) Make sure you're not testing too early -- you typically need to wait until 14 days after conception (which, on average, means about when your period was due). There just won't be enough hCG in your urine if you test too soon. 2) Be certain to wet the test stick completely. Follow the package directions. Most pregnancy test kits will also give details on how to test pee in a cup if mid-stream is too tricky. Need to know more? Read several more articles about pregnancy testing right here.
