Farewell to Reality: How Modern Physics Has Betrayed the Search for Scientific Truth

Urine tests are generally positive around the time of the first missed period. β-HCG concentrations in the range of 25 to 50 mIU/mL are detectable in qualitative urine samples. Home pregnancy test kits detect β-HCG in the urine. β-HCG is detectable within 1 to 2 weeks after fertilization, but a pregnancy cannot be detected prior to implantation. The highest sensitivity (97%) of home pregnancy tests is at 1 week after the first day of the missed period. Serum pregnancy tests detect β-HCG at levels as low as 10 to 15 mIU/mL and mean levels closely correspond with gestational age during the first trimester.
