Is blood pregnancy test more accurate than urine?

A serum (blood) pregnancy test is not necessarily more accurate than a urine test, but results may be obtained sooner in the pregnancy with a serum test for hCG, the hormone that signals pregnancy. Both methods test for the presence of human chorionic gonadotrophin which is present in the blood about 48 hours after implantation has occurred. It takes about 4 days for hCG to show up in detectable levels in the urine. Urine tests and serum tests are both highly accurate (about 97%) when performed correctly. Serum HCG tests may detect a pregnancy 6-14 days after ovulation, depending on the time of implantation. Urine HCG tests may detect a pregnancy 10 - 18 days after ovulation, depending on the time of implantation.
