How accurate is a blood test for determining my pregnancy date?
When it comes to choosing between an at-home urine test and a pregnancy blood test, the biggest difference is sensitivity. Although a home pregnancy test can usually pick up a concentration of about 50 units of hCG (the pregnancy hormone human chorionic gonadotropin), a pregnancy blood test can detect as little as 5 units of hCG. That sensitivity can make a big difference if you want to know whether or not you're pregnant very early. If you do a pregnancy test before you miss your period, the result may be negative with a urine test but positive with a blood test.
How soon can I take a pregnancy dating test?
Because a blood test measures the exact amount of hCG in your blood, it can estimate of how far along your pregnancy has progressed. Blood test results are about 99% accurate and can tell if you are pregnant about six to eight days after you ovulate.
How soon will I receive my results?
Pregnancy test results are typically available within 1 to 3 days. You can sign up for and check your results in the BioReference portal at www.bioreference.com/patient-portal.
Should I fast before my pregnancy test?
No, it is not necessary for you to fast before a blood pregnancy test.
