Explanation Of The Results Of The Beta HCG Examination Lab?
Good morning, my condition is now pregnant where hpht on March 12th. And I did a blood test beta hcg on April 13th with a value of 29, then was asked by the doctor for a blood hcg beta test again 2 days later on April 15th with a value of 32. I have a history of spontaneous miscarriage with the condition not visible pregnancy pouch / still thickening the wall uterus (positive test pack when late menses then 2 weeks later decays). For menses I am always regular. What I want to ask, from the results of the beta blood test, is my pregnancy this time, not so good? Because the interval of 2 days hcg beta increase is very little. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The beta chorionic gonadotropin (beta hCG) hormone is a hormone produced by the placenta in the developing fetus. Independently, the presence of this hormone can be detected through urine testpack examination. However, given its relatively low accuracy, it is also necessary to confirm with further examination, for example with a blood test or ultrasound, to ascertain whether the pregnancy actually happened or not. Normally, beta-hCG hormone levels will increase dramatically from 8 to 11 weeks 'gestation, and reach a peak at 12 to 20 weeks' gestation. The height of this hormone level is often directly proportional to the subjective symptoms of pregnancy that many mothers experience, including nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and so on.
In general, an increase in blood beta-hCG hormone levels exceeding 25 mIU / mL can be tested positive for pregnancy. As the gestational age increases, beta-hCG levels will continue to increase, until when the gestational sac is seen later, this hormone level can reach 1000-2000 mIU / mL. Increased levels of the beta hCG hormone in early pregnancy can be very drastic, even reaching twice that every 48-72 hours. However, because this range of values is quite large and often expectant mothers do not remember exactly when the HPHT (the first day of the last menstrual period), the diagnosis of pregnancy is usually only made after the beta hCG levels reach at least 2000 mIU / mL and the results of the ultrasound examination indeed show signs signs of pregnancy.
Regarding your question, without checking directly on your condition, we certainly are not authorized to determine whether you are pregnant or not, and whether your pregnancy is proceeding normally or not. Your slight increase in the level of beta hCG hormone can be a normal condition when the gestational age is very young (around 3-5 weeks), but it can also be due to inaccurate examination procedures. It could also, beta hCG hormone levels increase due to other reasons, such as ectopic pregnancy and wine pregnancy. Better, you consult your examination results directly to the obstetrician to be properly evaluated for the cause of your condition.
I hope this helps.
