Pregnancy Testing Types

When choosing a pregnancy test, a woman can select from the two major types of tests available.

Urine Pregnancy Tests:  Urine tests also measure the amount of HCG present in the body in order to determine if a woman is pregnant. Urine tests are conducted either by urinating in a sample jar or on a small sample collection stick. It is important to remember that urine becomes diluted throughout the day as a woman consumes liquids and foods. Accurate urine pregnancy tests are available at professional laboratories or doctors' offices.

Blood Pregnancy Tests:  Blood tests have long been considered the most accurate type of pregnancy test available to women. Blood tests measure the level of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) in a woman's blood stream. This is the chemical that a woman's body produces while she is pregnant. In early pregnancy, the level of the chemical doubles rapidly, allowing for accurate blood testing.

Medical professionals use both quantitative and qualitative blood tests in order to determine pregnancy. Quantitative tests measure the level of HCG present in the bloodstream. They can be helpful in determining a woman's due date. Qualitative tests return a simple result of pregnant or not pregnant.

At-Home Test Kits:  Many companies produce at-home pregnancy tests that measure the levels of HCG in a woman's urine. While these tests can be accurate, they are susceptible to a higher level of error than laboratory tests. Taking a test too early can also result in a false negative.
