When is a pregnancy test positive?

The pregnancy test consists of a test that provides the level of beta-hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), which is the hormone that is produced by the placenta cells after embryo implantation.

They measure the level of beta-hCG in urine, in such a way that if this hormone is found, the indicator reacts with the antibodies and shows the result. Normally, between 25 and 50 mUI/ml of this hormone are found and an accuracy of 95-97%.

It is advisable to perform the test with your first urination of the morning as it is the moment when the hormone’s concentration is highest.
