What is Pregnancy Test used for?
hCG is a glycoprotein secreted by the outer cells of the placenta shortly after the implantation of the fertilised ovum in the uterine wall. Levels in urine rise and can be detected within a few days of the first missed period. Levels continue to rise reaching a peak of 100000‑300000 mIU/ml after 2/3 months and then stabilising to an average level of 5000 mIU/ml in the second and third trimester. hCG is therefore an excellent marker for the early confirmation of pregnancy.
