What is an HPT?

Home pregnancy test

An HPT is a home pregnancy test that a person can take at home to determine if they are pregnant. People often use HPT on baby and pregnancy web forums to refer to their home tests.

HPTs are a convenient way to test for pregnancy because of their availability, ease of use, and dependability. The tests detect pregnancy through the presence of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) in the person's urine (produced when the person is pregnant).

Different brands of HPTs provide different levels of accuracy, but they are mostly accurate. However, it is also essential to visit a health professional to verify the pregnancy (typically through a blood test).
