About the Test

The Pregnancy Test - Qualitative hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) determines whether you are pregnant by confirming the presence of hCG in your blood as early as 7 days after conception. This hormone is produced by the placenta (an organ that develops in the uterus during pregnancy) and increases steadily throughout the first trimester (8-10 weeks) of a normal pregnancy.

This test is qualitative, and detects the presence or absence of hCG in your blood. Please note that this test is not quantitative and therefore does not measure the amount of hCG. The hCG test is highly accurate; if a positive result is found, you are very likely pregnant. However, the results should be confirmed with your healthcare provider. If the test result is negative, either you are not pregnant, or the test may have been conducted too early and requires repeating after a few more days. As with urine/home pregnancy tests, false results (both negative and positive) are possible outcomes from a blood pregnancy test. If you would like more information about your hCG levels, it is recommended that you follow up with your primary care provider or OBGYN.
