Yes: Beta HCG is measured in both blood and urine and is usually detected between 6-12 days after fertilization when implantation occurs. A quantitative bhcg can measure very low levels of bhcg but the typical qualitative blood test usually turns positive at a higher level and is not always better than the urine test.
