Two Types Of Pregnancy Tests
The two types of pregnancy tests are urine and blood tests. Both tests detect the presence of a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG).
This hormone is produced by the placenta shortly after the embryo attaches to the uterine lining.
Go Life performs urine pregnancy tests and can provide a proof of pregnancy certificate.
Urine Tests - Provided by Go Life
Urine tests can be performed at home or in a clinic either by dipping a stick into the urine or by placing a few drops of urine into a container.
Many doctors recommend that you wait until the first day of your missed period before taking a urine pregnancy test. This is usually about two weeks after conception.
Urine tests or home pregnancy tests are around 97% accurate when done correctly. But all of them will state their accuracy on the box.
Remember, if a test is administered incorrectly or taken too early, the result can be inaccurate.
There are two types of blood tests. A quantitative blood test measures the exact amount of hCG in the blood, and a qualitative hCG blood test gives a simple yes or no answer to whether you are pregnant or not.
Advantages of having a blood test done:
- Earlier detection than a urine test – about 7-12 days from possible conception.
- Measures the concentration of hCG hormone in the blood.
Disadvantages to having a blood test done:
- More expensive than a urine test.
- Takes longer to get result than urine test.
- Must be done in a doctor’s office
