In brief: See below
Pregnancy is detected by a specialized urine or blood test for hcg.
It is verified by ultrasound. Kub or ua & culture are of no use for pregnancy detection. Stds are detected by cultures specifically for a suspected infection. Trichomonas can be picked up in a ua. A general urine culture will not pick up most stds. A kub or us will not detect stds - just nonspecific effects on internal organs.
