HGC LevelsHere are answers and opinions from FAQ Farmers:
  • I don't know the exact definition, but it is a hormone a woman's body produces when she is pregnant. Home pregnancy tests have chemicals that "look" for HCG in the urine. If there is HGC in the urine, the test will show a positive.
  • HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone ONLY produced during pregnancy. I'm not really sure if "levels" are important, just if it's there or not. That's what pregnancy tests screen for in your urine.
  • From what I understand, after two or more blood tests, the doctor can tell wheather the levels of HCG are rising, or lowering. If they are rising, it is good, because it rises a lot over the first three months (also the cause for most morning sickness). If they levels are rapidly decreasing, it's a sign of a miscarriage (that happened to me, that's the only reason I know all this), and if it's slowly decreasing, it probably means your into your second trimester, when the levels do drop or stop excessivly reproducing, but of course, still stay in your system. From one blood test, they can see if your pregnant, that's how the home pregnany tests work as well, but they can't tell if the pregnancy is viable until one or more blood tests are taken. I don't know if all this is totally right, but it's the gist of it.
  • The Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a hormone produced by the mother's body during pregnancy. This is also the hormone for which a home pregnancy testing kit will test. Most home pregnancy tests will detect levels of HCG at or above 50mlU, but some 'early response' style tests can detect smaller amounts. In a normal pregnancy, the HCG levels should at least double every two to three days in the first trimester. This is why two blood tests taken a couple of days apart are often used to determine the viability of an early pregnancy.

To be honest part of your answer is wrong. You can receive HGC after you are pregnant as well. If you look up on the internet about molar pregnancies... there is weird way that HGC levels are given off into your body without you being pregnant.

Rising HCG levels during pregnancy is important. If not enough HCG amount to support the current state of pregnancy the baby may be miscarried. Urine samples are done at every dr. appt. to check to make sure you have the right levels etc...

Normal Hcg levels are zero, except in pregnant women. Depo Provera prevents pregnancy, thereby keeping hcg levels at zero.

HCG levels should double every 2-3 days, i think if HCG levels start dopping this can mean a possible miscarriage.

If you're pregnant, you're going to have elevated HCG levels. That's just how it works.

Depends on how far along you are. It is normal for the hcg levels to stop doubling and plateau then decrease later in your pregnancy

A normal hcg level is zero. A pregnant woman has an hcg level. Depo Provera prevents pregnancy. In that sense, it keeps your hcg level at zero.

Decreasing HCG levels usually means your at risk of losing the baby but the levels always stay down in this case. Levels that go back up again, could be because the baby was sleeping and wasn't moving around much and the HCG levels lowered slightly. But see your doctor to find out for sure. It should be investigated anyway.

When you have low hcg levels in early pregnancy and the levels are dropping, this could mean it is a non-viable pregnancy or a miscarriage. Unfortunately I had personal experience with this subject.Good Luck When you have low hcg levels early in pregnancy with the levels dropping, It could be a sign of a non-viable pregnancy, or miscarriage. Unfortunately I have personal experience with this myself.

The women I have worked with on the HCG Diet since 2007 generally have a great deal of trouble keeping the weight off after the diet if they are taking synthetic estrogen. If you take the correct amount of hCG while on the HCG diet, it will not effect your estrogen levels. If you take too much hCG while on the HCG Diet, it will act as a precursor and elevate estrogen levels.
