A pregnancy test is a medical diagnostic procedure used to determine whether a female has conceived a child. There are two broad categories of pregnancy tests: at home test and doctor office tests. The at-home tests are pretty good, up to a 95% accuracy when used according to the instructions on the box. They are based upon a reaction with hCG (human choriogonadotropin, a pregnancy-specific hormone) in the female's urine; this hormone starts to show up within a few weeks of conception. The doctor's office tests can either be similar to a home pregnancy test or can be a blood sample test looking for hCG. In the second trimester of pregnancy, a doctor can perform an ultrasound examination and identify the fetus in the uterus.
