Beta testing is one of the tests used to diagnose pregnancy. Beta HCG testing is done through blood and urine. Beta is actually part of the hormone HCG. HCG is a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy and enters the mother’s bloodstream and is measured after blood communication between the mother and the fetus.
You can have this test whenever you suspect a normal pregnancy or even an ectopic one, and the request is acceptable on your own. You do not need to be fasting to perform this test. It is not necessary not to drink water and it is not even necessary to stop the medications you are taking (at the doctor’s discretion).
The time required to perform this test is about half an hour, and you can perform this test at any time of the day or night. The test result will be ready within two hours of sampling.
