A beta hcg value of 1.2 ng/ml is equal to exactly 18 mIU. The formula for conversion is 1 ng/ml = 15 mIU. Most hospital blood tests actually test in ng/ml, which confuses some people since the values seem so low prior to conversion. The ELISA radioimmunoassay test (the most popular US/UK hospital hcg test series) gives results in ng/ml only. Most doctors and nurses do not convert the values for their patients unless specifically asked to..
Hope this helps!
Estrogen levels vary tremendously when you are pregnant. There is no "set" value for a week of pregnancy just a very wide range. If you are concerned, you should talk to your doctor.
It means you are pregnant, but still early. Your hcg should be doubling every two to three days in a healthy pregnancy. If your hcg drops, it may indicate an impending miscarriage. congrats you're preggers! ._.
Human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG, is produced during pregnancy. An hCG level of 7000 would indicate a 5 to 6 week gestational age.
There is no lab result that equals htgfgf. The closest lab result would be hcg which determines pregnancy in a female.
HCG drops are usually used with a low calorie diet, as with any diet program, safety should be regarded as the priority. There have been studies that indicate that HCG (Human chorionic gonadotropin) can help to preserve lean tissue while adipose tissue is lost.
Are you asking what level of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) must be in the blood to indicate pregnancy? Any level of Hcg is an indication of pregnancy. hCG is a hormone produced only during pregnancy, which is what they look for in both a blood, or urine pregnancy test. Hope this answers your question. =)
How do you know your HCG levels are high? It is not unusual to be pregnant and not have any symptoms. If you have a positive home pregnancy test you should assume you are pregnant and see a doctor. HCG is most commonly associated with pregnancy, but could indicate other health issues if it is elevated outside of pregnancy.
It doesn't tell you how far along you are, just that you are pregnant. HCG is the hormone women produce when they are pregnant. Here are more opinions and answers from other FAQ Farmers: * Your HCG levels double every 2-3 days during your pregnancy. * HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone produced ONLY during pregnancy. Pregnancy tests screen for this by a urine test, it's there or it's not. * Contrary to Jamie's response, your HCG level can indicate roughly how far along you are in your pregnancy. Ask your doctor. * HCG is not only produced when pregnant. Males can have HCG levels high enough to be detected by a home pregnancy test and women can also, when they are NOT pregnant. The HCG can be produced by certain tumors. In pregnancy HCG keeps the corpus luteum around to produce estrogen and progesterone, which are necessary in pregnancy. Also, HCG levels differ from each pregnant woman and the doubling is the most important factor. A high HCG level can also indicate a multi gestation pregnancy
HCG - Human chorionic gonadotropin Produced during pregnancy and made by the developing embryo soon after conception and later by the syncytiotrophoblast (part of theplacenta) HCG is also released by tumours and is an important part of detecting their presence. Levels of hCG may be measured in theblood or urine. Most commonly, this is done as a pregnancy test, intended to indicate the presence or absence of an implanted embryo. Testing for hCG may also be done when diagnosing or monitoring germ cell tumors and gestational trophoblastic disease. Most tests employ a monoclonal antibody, which is specific to the β-subunit of hCG (β-hCG). This procedure is employed to ensure that tests do not makefalse positives by confusing hCG with LH and FSH. (The latter two are always present at varying levels in the body, whereas the presence of hCG almost always indicates pregnancy.)
Hi, In the Quantiative Beta HCG blood pregnancy test, the value of HCG that the tests looks for before you get a positive, is low because it determines and confirms pregnancy very early. If you have low HCG in your blood test result, this may means several things. * Your not as far along as you thought you was. * Your at risk of miscarriage. In the case of risk of miscarriage, the doctors usually repeat the blood test within 48 hours to see if HCG levels have decreased or increased.
i don't think so but maybe. HCG is the hormone human chronic gonadotropin, which is produced by placental cells during pregnancy. Yes, you can be pregnant with an HCG level at 3. Typically, below 5 is negative and above 25 is positive. It can be this low in the first week or two of pregnancy. Some women have lower HCG levels during pregnancy than are typical. Ectopic pregnancies can result in low HCG levels. It can also indicate a problem with the pregnancy. It is best to have at least two HCG readings a couple days apart, if you are relying on HCG levels. If you think you should be 5 or more weeks pregnant but have low HCG levels, it would be a good idea to double-check with an ultrasound.
at any value! hcg is a hormone only produced by a pregnant or recently pregnant woman...that is to say is she had a miscarraige she could still be carring the hormone in her body but it will decreases over time instead of increase as it does with a normal pregnancy. Well, I had a miscarriage and the obgyn attending me said that an hcg level of 5 or below is considered a negative reading for a pregnancy. Therefore, once you reach that level, the pregnancy is definitely over.
