Quantitative hCG Pregnancy Test

$ 49.0

When you’re expecting, an hCG pregnancy blood test will help you know for sure.

This test provides an accurate measurement of the amount of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) present in your blood. HCG may appear in the blood of pregnant women about 10 days after conception. This pregnancy blood test is more accurate and can detect pregnancy earlier than other home pregnancy tests.²

Under the care of your healthcare provider, this hCG pregnancy blood test may also be used to help identify an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, evaluate an at-risk pregnancy, or confirm a woman is not pregnant before pursuing medical treatments that could negatively impact a developing fetus.¹

Accuracy Matters

As with urine/home pregnancy tests, it is possible to receive false results (both negative and positive) from a blood pregnancy test.

False Negative Results
(test is negative, but you are pregnant): usually occur if the blood pregnancy test was performed too early (a rule of thumb is that it takes about 10 days after conception for the test to show a positive result). A negative result may be attributed to not enough hCG in the blood to detect a pregnancy. Your hCG levels rise very quickly during early pregnancy. If you believe that you received a false negative result because you tested too soon and you still have not had a menstrual period, you may repeat the beta hCG quantitative test again after waiting 48 to 72 hours.2

False Positive Results
(test is positive, but you are not pregnant): very rarely happens. You may get this result if you are taking a medication that contains hCG or due to certain medical issues.2

  • A quantitative hCG blood test can detect exact levels of hCG, the pregnancy hormone, approximately as early as 10 days after conception—sooner than most other home pregnancy tests.¹,²

  • Pregnancy blood tests are the most accurate tests available for early detection.² However, false positive and false negative results may still be possible, for example, if the test was performed too early (resulting in a false negative) or if you are taking a medication that contains hCG (resulting in a false positive).

  • Your beta hCG results will let you know the amount of hCG in your blood so you can confirm detect a pregnancy as early as possible. The quantitative measurement helps determine the age of the fetus. Under the care of your healthcare provider, the test may also help you detect potential complications in assess the health of the pregnancy.
