Everything woman, improve your wellness today.  

HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is often called the pregnancy hormone because it is made by cells formed in the placenta, which nourishes the egg after it has been fertilized and becomes attached to the uterine wall. Levels can first be detected by a blood test about 11 days after conception and about 12-14 days after conception by a urine test.

Typically, the hCG levels will double every 72 hours. The level will reach its peak in the first 8-11 weeks of pregnancy and then will decline and level off for the remainder of the pregnancy

Beta HCG, quantitative

By measuring the exact amount of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) present in the blood, this hCG serum test can confirm a pregnancy with greater accuracy and earlier in gestation than many home pregnancy tests.

Why consider this test?

Early detection Women's Health Testing Southwest Labs local Albuquerque testing options

Earlier Detection

A hCG serum test can detect hCG earlier in a pregnancy than urine tests can; about six to eight days after conception.1,2

Progressive monitoring Women's Health Testing Southwest Labs local Albuquerque testing options

Progressive Monitoring

It is estimated that 12 million women aged 20 years and older have diabetes, and approximately 27 million have prediabetes.3

Greater accuracy Women's Health Testing Southwest Labs local Albuquerque testing options

Greater Accuracy

Women have the same chronic heart disease (CHD) risk factors as men. However, some risk factors may affect women differently than men. For example, diabetes raises the risk of CHD more in women. Also, some risk factors (such as birth control pills and menopause) only affect women.2
