Pregnancy tests detect human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) within the urine or serum of any expectant mother. HCG is produced once the pregnancy is implanted inside the endometrium (ectopic pregnancies are implantations in other sites). Pregnancy tests are made to detect this substance.
An initial morning urine specimen is preferred for pregnancy testing since the pregnancy hormone is much more concentrated.
