All pregnancy tests beta hCG hormone used to diagnose an ongoing pregnancy. This makes sense, because this hormone begins to be produced by cells of the embryo in the first days after conception. In general, it is recommended to do the test only after the delay period, as it is at this time about the levels of beta hCG are high enough to be detected by pregnancy tests. The delay period itself has nothing to do with the levels of beta hCG. It is only a coincidence that, in most women, beta hCG levels are high enough to be detected around the end of the menstrual cycle, ie, at the time that menstruation should lower.
