Hello,

The pregnancy test can be done at home by using the card test. The testing is done by beta hCG home card after one week of the delayed period to avoid the false result.

If you want to rule out pregnancy just now than blood beta hCG quantitative estimation can be done by Elisa.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
