What methods are used?
To test for pregnancy, a urine or blood test can be used. Urine tests are the most common, as they produce an instant result and are non-invasive. In the event that a patient cannot provide a urine sample, a blood test may be administered instead. Both tests will determine if a hormone known as HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is present. After the embryo attaches to the lining of the uterus, the placenta will begin producing this hormone rapidly in the early stages of pregnancy. A positive result will indicate the presence of this hormone.
A blood test can be used to detect the presence of HCG, as well as to determine the exact level of HCG in the bloodstream. The latter is helpful for patients who may have a risk of certain problems or health risks during pregnancy. Blood tests can also detect pregnancy earlier than a urine test, but the results will take longer to process.
