What is The Purpose of an HCG Test?

To confirm Pregnancy:

If the HCG level is greater than 5 mIU/mL, the woman is pregnant. HCG levels begin to rise within 10 days of pregnancy.

Multiple pregnancies:

HCG levels that are consistently high can be a sign of multiple pregnancies. It can be further verified with an ultrasound or sonogram.

Healthy pregnancy:

HCG levels fluctuate throughout the pregnancy. It serves as a sign of a healthy pregnancy. This range must be regularly monitored during the first trimester.

Age of the foetus:

The age of the foetus can also be determined using HCG levels. The mother's body creates more HCG as the foetus grows.

Chances of miscarriage:

If the HCG levels are consistently lower than the recommended levels, the pregnancy is likely to end prematurely.

Ectopic pregnancy:

In the fallopian tube that is connected to the uterus, HCG is produced. Therefore, in the case of an ectopic pregnancy, the level of HCG is impacted.
