When a woman becomes pregnant, her body produces a hormone called hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin). The secretion of this hormone by the developing placenta begins soon after conception and increases throughout the first trimester. The presence of hCG in the urine is an excellent indication in the early detection of pregnancy. The hCG Home Pregnancy Test is a rapid qualitative test for the determination of human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in urine. The test utilizes unique antibodies that are specific for hCG, enabling it to be a highly sensitive and accurate test. With DRGÕs hCG Test, pregnancy can be determined as early as the first day of a woman’s missed period.
