Hi! Jasmine,
The sensitivity and specificity of the pregnancy kits are quite high. But there are two ways of confirmation
First is by Ultrasonography of Uterus by transvaginal probe. Foetus can be visible.
Take two readings of beta-HCG levels over a period of two days. A significant increase suggests pregnancy.
