This test is used to help determine is a person is pregnant or not. The Quantitative Pregnancy test provides a measurement for Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), a hormone which is produced by the placenta of pregnant women. This test provides quantitative results, meaning the results will provide a numerical value for the person's hCG level. By comparing their number to the reference interval a person can determine if their results indicate a pregnancy or not. The reference range on the results can also help someone with positive results estimate how many weeks of gestation they are at. Generally, blood testing is more sensitive that urine testing and can detect pregnancy several days earlier. Lab testing is typically more accurate that at-home pregnancy testing.
This test is typically ordered when someone has missed a menstrual period or is experiencing other symptoms associated with pregnancy. In most cases, hCG testing is most accurate 10 days after a missed period but may be accurate for some people as early as a few days before menstruation would normally begin. If the initial test is negative, but symptoms persist, it is advisable to retest at a later date.
Quantitative hCG blood testing can also be used to monitor a pregnancy, especially if a person's doctor is concerned they may be experiencing an ectopic or failing pregnancy. In this case it is common to order a Progesterone Test as well. This test may also be used to monitor a woman who has had a miscarriage.
Turnaround time for the Quantitative Pregnancy test is typically 1 business day.
Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
This test can detect pregnancy as early as 7 days after conception. For the highest level of accuracy it is recommended to take the test 10 days after a missed menstrual period or any time after.Pregnancy Overview
