This quantitative pregnancy blood test, also called the Beta hCG blood test, measures the amount of the hormone hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) in the blood. This hormone is secreted when a fertilised egg becomes implanted in the uterine wall. Present in very small amounts in early conception, the level of hCG grows as your pregnancy develops.
This test is very sensitive and can detect even very low levels of hCG, possibly giving a positive result earlier than an over-the-counter urine test. Indeed, a blood test like this can tell if you are pregnant about six to eight days after you ovulate (release an egg from an ovary).
This test if for women who want an early test to find out whether they are pregnant. A negative result does not necessarily mean that you are not pregnant as hCG may not be detectable even with this sensitive test, especially if you tested early or ovulated late. A repeat test is recommended if your period has not arrived after another 3 days.
