I will try my best to answer your query.

The urine pregnancy test kit is 99.9% accurate. Almost all urine pregnancy tests will give you accurate results if you test at around the time your period would normally be due; about two weeks after you ovulate.
As you have some doubt in your mind regarding the reading i advice you to repeat it after two days.

Hope my answer will be helpful for you.

Take care.

welcome to health care magic

the simplest way to test for pregnancy is urine test.
The kit are available in the market and they detect the presence of the hormone hCG
A faint line means either your hCG level is low as you have just missed your period
It will be ideal to repeat the test after 3 to 4 days to confirm your pregnancy
