How Does Pregnancy Test Work?

In a pregnancy test, we detect a hormone known as human chorionic gonadotropic hormone (hCG), which is released in your body when a fertilized egg attaches to the wall of the woman’s uterus. If you’re pregnant, the hCG hormone levels will rise within a few days. 

Urine testing detects the presence of hCG hormone in the urine and gives a positive result if the hormone is present in the urine. 

On the other hand, blood testing is a qualitative and quantitative test that measures the levels of hCG in your blood. It is considered to be more accurate and sensitive as compared to urine testing.

When Can I Take A Pregnancy Test?

Most people take a pregnancy test after their missed period, but taking the test too early or late (especially urine pregnancy testing) could give you an inaccurate result. 

A blood test can detect the hCG hormone within six to eight days after conception. On the other hand, a urine test can detect hCG 10 days after conception. 

Your doctor can advise you on which test is best for you and whether you should undergo further testing.
