When to take a pregnancy test after IVF?

In order for the result of the pregnancy test to be reliable, it should be done about 15 days after the embryo transfer. In addition, blood pregnancy tests provide more accurate results than urine tests, since they report the amount of the beta hormone hCG that exists in the body. This hormone is produced by the embryo itself when it implants in the woman's uterus.

Therefore, if a pregnancy test is performed before the recommended date, the woman could obtain a false positive or a false negative.
