Early pregnancy testing

Early pregnancy testing is a specific test that detects the 'pregnancy' hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in the blood or urine. HCG is released by the lining of the uterus after a fertilized egg has implanted and is present in both the blood and urine of the woman after implantation has occurred.

There are two types of tests that can confirm pregnancy. A qualitative hCG test detects the presence of hormone in the urine. This test is not 100% accurate; it can give both false positive and false negativee results. A quantitative hCG test; which measures the amount of hCG in the blood is more accurate. This test is used to estimate the gestation of the pregnancy but can also help in the detection of ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy that does not grow in the uterus), miscarriage, threatened miscarriage and other possible complications and non-pregnancy related medical conditions.
