Not my area of expertise, of course, but I'm pretty sure the answer is no, that is not why it is done, and there are far easier and more reliable tests for present pregnancy - a pap smear looks at a scraping from the neck of the womb to check the cells there, and to pick up early signs of cancer or other problems.
