Qualitative Pregnancy Blood Test

hCG, Qualitative

Test Code: 004556

Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Qualitative Pregnancy Blood Test (Labcorp)

The qualitative pregnancy blood detects the presence of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in the blood to help determine if a person is pregnant.  The major benefits of pregnancy blood testing are a higher level of accuracy than standard at-home urine tests as well as the ability to detect a pregnancy earlier than other methods.

Shortly after conception, the placenta begins producing the hormone hCG.  HCG is typically detectable as early as 7 days after conception.  During the first 14-16 weeks of pregnancy, hCG levels normally increase quickly and then begin to gradually decrease.

This test is typically ordered when someone is experiencing signs of pregnancy or has already had a positive result on an at-home pregnancy test.  Some of the earliest signs of pregnancy include a missed menstrual period, unusual tiredness or fatigue, frequent urination, and nausea.  In the event of a negative result, if the signs of pregnancy continue, it is recommended to wait 1-2 weeks and test again.

The results of this pregnancy blood test are qualitative, meaning they will be either positive or negative.  A quantitative hCG blood test that provides numerical results is also available.

Turnaround time for the Qualitative 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.

Detection Period:

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.

Requirements:

It is recommended that someone taking Biotin (also known as vitamin B7 or B8, vitamin H, or coenzyme R) stop consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection of a sample.
