  • Blood tests are far more accurate than urine tests. If you are pregnant, the blood test should show it. It will detect any level of HCG and not just the higher levels needed for urine tests.

  • A urine test mine came up positive at like 3 weeks and 4 days. it depends on the hcg level for urine tests
