Patient: Do pregnancy test become more sensitive after 15 mins

Doctor: HelloWelcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here to help you.Yes, Urine pregnancy test performed at home gets a more da rker line after some time, like 10-15 minutes.Initially, the test gets positive with a faint pink line and with each passing minute , the line gets more and more dark and eventually the darkest. This happens due to reaction of HCG in urine to the reagent in the strip.I hope it helps.Stay Healthy
