Hi Martha
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

For urine pregnancy test they take your urine sample.As kits are available ,the test is done anywhere and the result can be known instantly.Best sample would be early morning urine sample.beta HCG can also be detected by blood test.

Take care.

Hi Martha, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
You should be getting it done, using a early morning urine sample one week after missing your expected periods. First you Velocit Kit from a Pharmacy shop and collect the sample of first urine for the day in the early morning as the First morning urine usually contains the highest concentration of hCG and is therefore the best sample when performing the urine test.Collect it in a Filler which is available with the kit and put a drop in the well over the slab. Wait for colored bands to appear. Depending on the concentration of hCG in the test specimen, positive results (that is two lines should appear )may be observed in as little as 40 seconds. If a single line appears at "C", the test is negative for Pregnancy.

Good Luck.

I found out I was pregnant when I was only 14 days past ovulation. The doctor checked my hcg level because the urine test was really light. My Hcg level came back at 53, he said that was too low. Would you say its too low, I got it checked again today but they never called me back

Hi, I was expecting my period last around last Tuesday. It is now over a week late. I have taken 3 pregnancy tests. The first one I thought I could see a very very light blue line when I tilted it on an angle. But the other 2 were clear blue digital, I took one yesterday morning and one today and both said not pregnant. Is it possible that I am pregnant and the tests can't pick up my hcg levels yet? My last 2 periods were February 15th for 5 days and March 19th for 5 days. So I'm usually about 30 days apart. So this one is very late.
