If I am concerned about the hook effect is there a way that I can dilute my own urine sample to test, or is it necessary to have a doctor or lab do this?

If you think you are pregnant, you should see your physician and have a blood test performed. You can dilute your urine, usually a 1:5 dilution will work. However, no matter what the results are if you feel you may be pregnant you should see your physician.
