While hCG CAN register on a pregnancy test, I no longer view it as reliable, and I explain why in detail with a very good example here:
An IMPORTANT message to my readers about Real Prescription hCG
The hCG hormone that you’re using for either rx hCG Injections or rx hCG Drops can be tested using a pregnancy test. Pregnancy tests are designed to test specifically for the presence of the hCG hormone, and getting a positive register on the test for hCG indicates that the hCG is there and active. Check out this interesting article on how pregnancy tests work.
How to Test Your hCG:
Directions below, but see a demonstration of testing hCG with instructions in my video here as well.
– It’s best to buy a pregnancy test that has a small window where you can drop just a small amount of hCG into it.
– The kind of regular pregnancy test that has a long stick that you pee on is not ideal because you would have to use up a lot your precious hCG mixture in order to do the test. If you have to use the pee-on kind of pregnancy test, cut off the majority of the “stick” part with some scissors, then put some hCG on what’s left of the stick- this will at least minimize how much hCG you have to waste. I often find the type of pregnancy test that has the little window at the dollar store- they are very small in size.
– Use one of your syringes that came with your hCG kit to drop a small amount of hCG into the test window- you want to use at little as possible, but at the same time, you need to use enough so the liquid gravitates fully across the testing area. I have found this to be somewhere around a 200iu dose (20 units or .2cc/ml on the syringe) if you mixed your hCG in a 1:1 ratio originally (5mls bac water + 5oooiu hCG or 2ml’s bac water + 2000iu hCG).
– After a minute or so, you should see your results in the window. Do not read the results too many minutes later as the double line will fade very quickly and make it seem negative when it really was positive to start with.
– Check the package directions so you know what you’re looking for when looking or a positive result. Usually it’s either a double line, or a plus sign, or something like that.
– If the double line is there but very faint, that’s okay, it’s still positive. Remember you are using a very tiny amount of hCG on the test.
See my video here for a demonstration and more details.
