In both IVF and ICSI, it is recommended to do a pregnancy test at least 14 days after the follicular puncture. Thus, the risk of false positive or false negative is minimal. However, it is best to do the beta-hCG analysis before a urine test to know if it has been successful, as the beta test is more reliable.
