Pregnancy Blood Test (hCG test)
A pregnancy test is used to determine whether or not a person is pregnant. A pregnancy test looks for the presence of a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin or hCG. The body typically begins producing this hormone 6-7 days after fertilization occurs. During pregnancy, the level of hCG in the body continues to rise. Pregnancy blood tests (hCG tests) are more accurate than a home pregnancy test and can detect pregnancy earlier. A blood pregnancy test can accurately detect pregnancy as early as 6-8 days after ovulation. Pregnancy blood tests can be either qualitative or quantitative. A qualitative test will show either a positive or negative result. A quantitative test measures the level of hCG in the blood and will show how far along a pregnancy is. The quantitative test can also be used to identify and track certain complications during pregnancy.

Signs of pregnancy
