Online Pregnancy Test - Are You Pregnant?
By Anthony France
You can find just about anything on the internet these days. Even an online
pregnancy test! Ok, so the test isn't based on scientific analysis of your blood or
urine, but it can help you to assess whether or not you should consider taking a home
Not all online pregnancy tests are alike. Many of them give you a list of possible
symptoms and allow you to decide if you have any of these. Then using the date of
your last period as a guide marker, the site hosting the online pregnancy test will give
you a possible due date for your baby if you are indeed pregnant. It doesn't give any
information on the likelihood of this, instead it leaves it up to you to decide.
Other online pregnancy tests are a little more complicated. Using a series of tick
boxes, they ask you a list of questions that cover the date of your last period, your
sexual activity around that time, your age, general health issues such as stress and
physical condition, which symptoms (from the list) that you are experiencing and
what, if any, form of birth control you use.
The site then analyses your results and although it can't give a true result, the online
pregnancy test will tell you if they think it's likely that you need to take a pregnancy
test. Of course, neither of these approaches are going to put your mind at rest. Most
women if they suspect will need to take the home pregnancy test anyway, just to make
sure one way or the other.
Whether or not you are pregnant is not the only online pregnancy test available. Once
pregnant, there are a number of other fun online pregnancy tests which will analyse
the answers to the questions they ask and tell you whether or not you are going to
have a baby boy or baby girl. How accurate these are is mixed - often the site will tell
you their success rate, or have a forum to discuss it.
Although the online pregnancy test is unable to give you definite answers, it's a
starting point if you suddenly realize that there's a possible connection between a
number of seemingly unrelated symptoms - and the best thing is that like any
information on the internet - you get fast results!
