ALFA's pregnancy tests detect Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). hCG is a hormone that is released by the placenta, which helps the fetus develop. Since the placenta only forms after a woman becomes pregnant, hCG is a reliable marker that indicates pregnancy. Within nine days after a sperm fertilizes an egg in the woman’s fallopian tube, the embryo travels to the uterus, where it implants itself into the uterine wall. After implantation, the embryo grows a placenta, which serves as the conduit between the fetus and the mother’s blood stream. hCG levels rise very rapidly and peak at around 14 weeks after a woman’s last menstrual cycle. hCG is can be detected in a woman’s blood as soon as 6 days after implantation, before she misses her next period.
