A urine pregnancy test measures the level of human chorionic gonadotropin hormone, or HCG, in the urine to help determine if a woman is pregnant. HCG is a hormone that is present in the urine in higher amounts when a woman becomes pregnant.

For this test, you will urinate a small amount into a cup.

  • It is best to collect the sample first thing in the morning.
  • Don't drink a lot of fluids before collecting the urine sample. This could dilute the urine and cause a false-negative result.
  • HCG appears in the urine of pregnant women about 10 days after conception.

What should I ask my healthcare provider before having this test?

  • Is there any special preparation for the test? (If so, get clear instructions on what you need to do.)
