AccuHealth Urgent Care can perform both urine tests and blood tests to confirm pregnancy. Urine tests at AccuHealth Urgent Care are more sensitive than home pregnancy tests, and are thus more accurate. Though urine tests are typically accurate today, they can't detect pregnancy quite as accurately as blood tests can.
Blood tests can detect pregnancy early -- at around 6-8 days after ovulation. There are two kinds of blood tests for pregnancy. The most common is the qualitative hCG test. This test checks for the presence of hCG, which provides a definitive answer to the question of whether you're pregnant. A quantitative hCG test is a more complex test that measures the precise level of hCG in the blood. This kind of test is used in cases where there has been a big drop in hCG or when other tests weren't conclusive.
