The Right Time For A Pregnancy Test?
, if the gestational age is more than 20 weeks is it still detected when tested using a testpack?
Hello. Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Pregnancy checks can be done in several ways such as a testpack, ultrasound, and physical examination by a doctor. The simplest examination is a testpack that measures pregnancy hormone content (HCG), an increase will occur and in general the levels that can be detected by the testpack are about one week since the last day of menstrual delay. can check pregnancy hormone levels (HCG) where the normal level is 5 Miu / ml in pregnancy conditions will continue to increase until the peak at 13-16 weeks gestational age which is around 13,300 - 254,000 Miu / ml and then slowly decreases. The amount of hCG that increases early in pregnancy can provide information about pregnancy and infant health. Immediately after giving birth, hCG can no longer be found in the blood. So in pregnancy HCG levels can still be detected and it is best at gestational age 13 to 16 weeks.
In addition to pregnancy signs can also be considered as
Spots or blood spots where it is a patch of zygote attachment to the uterine wall that occurs during the first 2-3 days of pregnancy
Changes in breast shape due to the production of the hormone estrogen and progesterone are higher
Mild abdominal cramps that show the development of the uterus during pregnancy
Other symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, lack of appetite, and frequent urination.
