The SELFCheck Pregnancy Blood Test is a simple finger prick blood test used to detect the pregnancy hormone hCG in blood rather than urine.
Blood tests can be more reliable than urine tests for showing that you are pregnant and, for this reason, are sometimes used in hospital labs to confirm a urine pregnancy test. Unlike urine pregnancy tests, you can use a blood test at any time of the day and are unaffected by dilution from drinks. Because of this, you may get a positive result with the new SELFCheck pregnancy blood test before you would with a urine test.
The same device provided with your SELFCheck test is also used in hospitals. Nevertheless, due to the increased complexity of a home pregnancy blood test compared to a traditional urine test, more skill is required to perform the test correctly. It is therefore even more important to thoroughly read and understand the instructions provided with a home blood test to ensure the correct amount of blood and diluent is added to the test device.
Contains 1 test.
