What Does a Positive Pregnancy Test Look Like?

How do pregnancy tests work?

Things to know when testing

How to read your pregnancy test results

  1. The control line © to make sure the test worked.
  2. The test line (T) that shows a positive result.

Example positive test results

Things to keep in mind

  1. Your urine was too diluted (don’t drink a lot of liquid for a few hours before testing) or
  2. It’s too early to detect a pregnancy. If you tested before your expected period, this could be the case. If you feel you’re pregnant, test again in a few days. hCG levels soar in early pregnancy — doubling every 48 hours. If you miss your period and still get a negative result, see your doctor.
