Have you had a positive result from an at-home test? Then it’s time to do a real test. A professional pregnancy test looks for a particular hormone in your blood. After a fertilised egg implants in the uterus, cells around the embryo release a special hormone in the urine or blood. The hormone is called human chorionic gonadotropin (or hCG) and is only present when a woman is pregnant. A clinical pathology blood test is the most accurate way to test for the presence of hCG.
