A blood pregnancy test is a quantitative blood test to show how much human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is in your blood. This is the type of blood pregnancy test that most people are referring to when they talk about blood tests for pregnancy. The human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) blood test measures the level of hCG hormone present in a sample of your blood. hCG is produced during pregnancy. Your.

Summary An HCG pregnancy test checks human chorionic gonadotropin levels in the blood or urine. This measurement means that an HCG test can test whether a woman is pregnant. hCG tests involving blood and urine tests could help in detecting pregnancy.

The hCG levels could be first detected in blood as early as six days of egg implantation and reach their peak in the first 14 to 16 weeks after your last menstrual period. Subsequently, they decline and remain stable for the rest of the pregnancy (1). July 9, 2020. Early in pregnancy, your provider will check your blood type and Rh status. Your blood will also be checked for immunities to things like rubella, hepatitis B, syphilis and HIV.

Depending on your situation, you may also have blood tests to check for gestational diabetes and genetic disorders, and to establish baseline figures if you’re at risk for preeclampsia or hypertension. A qualitative test detects if hCG is present in the blood. A quantitative test (or beta) measures the amount of hCG actually present in the blood.

Guideline to hCG levels in weeks during pregnancy * These numbers are just a guideline – every woman’s level of hCG can rise differently. A blood test is the most accurate way to detect hCG levels, because more of the pregnancy hormone is present in the blood than in the urine. Blood tests can detect levels between 5 and 10 mIU/mL versus the 20 mIU/mL that most at-home pregnancy tests can detect. There are two types of blood tests to determine pregnancy: Qualitative hCG blood serum tests check to see if a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin is present in your blood. HCG is a hormone produced by the body during pregnancy.

A positive result means you are pregnant and a negative result means you are not pregnant. Pregnancy tests detect the level of hCG, a hormone produced by the human placenta, present in the woman’s urine. hCG starts being produced on the day of implantation, and peaks around the 10th week of the pregnancy. During those first few weeks, the concentration of hCG doubles every two days.

How soon will a pregnancy test read positive?Pregnancy tests check blood or urine for human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Your body makes hCG after implantation of an embryo in your uterus.

  • I’m so sorry! You are brave for sharing your story because it will help a lot of other women who have gone through something similar! ��

  • I am really scared we was planning for baby just before one week in this week we had sex regularly but after one week I feel sick just casually I check pregnancy from pregnancy tester I got surprised it was positive then next day again I check again positive then after that I give my blood for pregnancy test when when I saw my result it was positive blood report says I am pregnant but I am very confused how can it possible please help me I am pregnant or not

  • I’m sorry hon. Nothing like getting jerked around by pregnancy tests! This JUST happened to me the last few days. I got two VERY positive tests with one brand, then another brand was negative. Ended up getting my cycle four days later. Not sure what to think or feel. The best part is my husband had a vasectomy end of 2017. So to get two positives made my mind reel. I have six babies, and I’m alllllll done. Lol. All that to say I totally empathize. ❤️❤️❤️

  • I’ve had 2 chemicals and they are the absolute most heart breaking, confusing experience. On the side of the ol’ ✂✂ make sure he goes back for Every Single follow up appointment because that stuff can easily reverse itself and the tubes can grow back together. My cousin had his done and years later him and his wife conceived twins lol

  • Way to go Kyle! I think its awesome when the man steps up and gets a vasectomy. You will do great. Maybe Jay can practice his nursing skills on you lol.

  • it’s actually not a myth but I have seen that wondfos seem to be harder to read and a lot easier to look positive with blood. So I definitely wouldn’t use those with blood, $1 tests work awesome though, I got a negative a couple days ago with blood and a positive today.

  • Awww,Emily you need a hug alright to cry.Invisible hug across the miles.No worries,Emily just overwhelming moment for you..Snip,snip Kyle OMG.You’re junk be good I hope,bro..Love,light and peace to you Jackson Family.You are blessed Kyle and Emily with your 3 children.

  • Wow I wasn’t expecting this on the video. As I was listening to you both chatting about it all, I am so proud of how you both have handled it all, for your ages you have both matured since having children, I don’t mean that to be patronising or anything like that,I am just trying to explain how I found you both in video. And I agree with you on focusing on your 3 you have now. In my mind this was what was meant to happen god moves in mysterious ways. Anyway A MASSIVE GOOD LUCK KYLE but you be all good in no time. Xx ����‍⚕️����

  • I had a positive pregnancy test (I haven’t missed my period yet) but my HCG is only 15 and they said I will miscarry. How can they be so sure if I haven’t even missed my period yet. Isn’t it early to say that?

  • I’m celibate… and I have to take one on Monday for surgery prep ���� *sarcasm*..oh, the joys of having a uterus ����������������

  • I’m sorry you had to go through that �� I’ve been through that too and sadly a miscarriage as well. It’s never easy and it just takes an emotional toll on you. Prayers ��❤

  • Good luck tomorrow Kyle don’t worry my son in law had it done and he was awake and it was just in a small office type room too and he says it’s the best thing he’s done. Xx

  • Hello.my home pregnancy tests are positive.but beta hcg test negative.i have pcos.my lmp was 28 march.m very much worried about my pregnancy.plz reply me

  • Literally the same thing happened to me in the past week I had a positive and then two days later started my period/bleeding. It was also a shock and unplanned for me but then I didn’t know how to feel. I’ve also cried because I started getting excited and this has never happened to me either.

  • Hi had the same thing happen to me get postive and the neg very confusing and it was sad but I’m in a two week wait again so I hope this month is our month

  • How do you even prick your finger? I tried stabbing my finger around 10 or so times and it hurts and I could not draw blood lol finally I did it harder than I was and I was able to get a tiny bit of blood to come out but not even enough for a drop after stabbing the same spot 3 times ��

  • girl there’s no need to explain yourself or your guys’s personal decisions on vasectomies or things like that because no matter if a troll wants to sit there and put you down because oh you just had a positive pregnancy test and now you guys are snips snipping…. like what’s up guess what it’s your decision at the end of the day and not theirs. they don’t know you personally they don’t understand what it’s like being in your shoes so they really have no room to talk! you guys are doing what’s best for you personally and your family I myself have had a miscarriage and did not want any kids after that and here I am 8 weeks pregnant and excited but this is my last and if I was to lose this baby I would still go ahead with tying my tubes so do not feel like you need to explain yourself on why you guys are choosing what you are or what you’re doing because at the end of the day we are all here to support you and if they are true friends and true supporters they’re going to stick by your side if they sit there and talk down on you because of your situation then guess what they’re nothing but rolls and they don’t deserve a moment of your time and just don’t read their comments. Good luck on the surgery and I will continue to subscribe and watch your videos no matter what happens

  • That was a close one hahaha I felt the panic in ur heart Every kid is a blessing every pregnancy is�� I knew I was done after 3 daughters lol it can be a lot..

  • All things work together. It’s ok to be sad, even though this wouldn’t have been planned. It’s a lot of up and down in your emotions.

  • I totally feel you I’ve never gotten a positive test and not be pregnant. I made the decision to get my tubes tied after my 3rd because I never wanted to worry about being pregnant again and also don’t like birth control either like you have mentioned! But good luck to Kyle I’m glad he is taking one for the team lol!

  • the cushion that absorbs the liquid is underneath the shiny thing, you either had to cut it to a shorter point or add the blood on the side where the cushion is, not on to,it’s not absorbed lol

  • thats because the soonest you can find out is 6 to 8 days. but the hcg could still be fairly low, so for a more accurate result you should wait until your period is past due. that way you do not get a false negative.

  • How weird, I have never met anyone or heard of anyone get a false positive. I know that it can happen, but didn’t know it actually can! Proud of you for taking the step to make your current family size permanent. I don’t understand how ppl can just have kid after kid after kid (unplanned) and not take any steps to prevent unwanted pregnancies because usually, from what I have seen, the kids and parents suffer… whether it’s financially and/or emotionally because they weren’t prepared to have x amount of children. Sorry, that sounds harsher than I mean it to.

  • Hey. For last two mounth I spotted we’ll in July 1-8 spotted an I spotted at end of July same aug 13 I took look yes pergenant. When. I blood aug 27/13 the call me that said not but I still pergenant even I’m spotting very light I could still be pergenant? My last day. Aug16/13

  • So good Kyle is getting the procedure done, like you said for the team. I would like to see a vlog on on he is recovering. You should have a edible arrangment with some ballons sent to him. Maybe some of his fav snacks and items to help him in the healing process ��

  • I just did a home blood test it came out very faint? My urine tests are really strong so idk if there’s something wrong now I’m worried. Will I even pass a blood test? I know I’m pregnant ����

  • This might sound weird, but I would recommend prenatal vitamins until your cycle starts.
    I had a friend who was positive on a box test, but neg on blood, 4 months after the blood work she had the blood work done again, it came back positive. She now has a beautiful daughter.
    So I highly recommend treating yourself as if you are pregnant, until your 120% sure you aren’t

  • New subscriber I’m sorry about what happened Same thing happened to me few months ago and also already had 3 misscarridges so the pain is unbearable so yes u are very blessed.

  • I just done this and mine was positve. But my urine tests have been so faint they look like shadows. I’m going to the doctor Monday. And my test showed up and it was instantly positive. It didnt take 5 min. So idk

  • just a quick note I too had a TL at 23 because I had my 3 kids! I had the TL then not even 2 years later and I had 3 CS I cried every day that I wanted the 4th kid and could not! went back to my doctor to see if they could reverse my TL and they said yes but the surgery would take 7 hours and then not work! to this day I wish I have never done! wish you guys all the best! Kyle don’t be scared its simple my patients do that all the time! and now not weird first because if you get pregnant they doctors don’t want to take the blame, second its your body if Kyle said no its no even if you sign!

  • My hubby got a vasectomy a couple weeks ago! It was super quick and easy. No complications at all and he recovered really quickly. His was also just a local numbing and he wasn’t put under. I hope everything goes well for Kyle. Use those frozen peas!

  • Very informative video

  • The blue test isn’t a pregnancy test it’s an ovulation test. Pregnancy tests say HCG ovulation test says LH. And from reading the test it’s negative for ovulation.
