How Soon Can I Do A Pregnancy Test ?

Saturday, 5 May 2012

This is a common question for women in the childbearing age and it involves a lot of physiological details that i will try to simplify in the rest of this article.

Answer: A woman can do a pregnancy test from the first day of her missed period.

Pregnancy tests will measure the presence of pregnancy hormone known as Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG). 

There are two ways of doing a pregnancy test - home pregnancy test and blood pregnancy test. 
Home pregnancy test will be done using a sample of urine which is collected immediately after waking up in the morning. This is because hCG hormone will be present in its highest concentration.
Blood pregnancy test will depend on testing the amount of hCG in blood, which is more accurate and can be used to assess the viability of the fetus.
