Pregnancy Test hCG
Also Known As: Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Test, hCG Test, Qualitative hCG Blood Test, Quantitative hCG Blood Test, Beta-hCG Urine Test
A pregnancy test measures a hormone in the body called hCG, produced during pregnancy by the placenta and found in the blood and urine.
Testing for hCG can be done as soon as 10 days after conception to help determine if you are pregnant. Measuring hCG can also help identify complications during pregnancy.
