What Do Pregnancy Tests Detect?

All pregnancy tests, regardless of whether they’re blood or urine-based, work by detecting hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). This hormone is only present in the body during pregnancy, and its levels rise rapidly in those first weeks.

If you’ve been experiencing pregnancy symptoms or suspect you may be pregnant, taking a test is crucial. Sometimes, symptoms like a missed period or fatigue can come from other conditions, weight changes, and more.

Home pregnancy tests are urine-based and accurate if taken correctly. Blood-based pregnancy tests are offered at doctor’s offices and hospitals and provide very precise results.

Taking a home pregnancy test a few days after a missed period or several weeks after sexual intercourse is ideal. You want to provide time for any hCG levels to rise and become detectable.
