Being pregnant causes HGC to be in your body. If you want more detail than that; it's a hormone that your body produces when you are pregnant. That is what home pregnancy tests detect. If you have HGC in your urine, you are pregnant.

P.S. its actually HCG... if you'd like info on HGC, please go to this wikipedia link:

Can hcg drop to nearly 0 after a miscarriage but then continue to rise?

hCG is detected in blood and urine a few days after the embryo implants in the uterus. It continues to rise throughout the first trimester when it levels off and drops following childbirth. In a pregnancy loss it takes 2 to 6 weeks to return to <5 - 0 (normal, non pregnant state), depending how far into the pregnancy you were. A rise in hCG may mean you are pregnant again, see your doctor for an exam and/or ultrasound.

How soon after implantation do hCG levels rise?

HCG stands for "Human Chorionic Gonadotropin", the pregnancy hormone. HCG is being produced by the placenta and enters the blood stream as soon as implantation happens, about one week after fertilization and ovulation, when the embryo implants and the placenta attaches to the uterine lining.

What causes your period to stop hcg or progesterone?

Elevated levels of progesterone is what causes your period to stop, but hcg plays a role in that too, as it is the presence of hcg (from implanted embryo) that tells the corpus luteum to keep pumping out the progesterone after the normal luteal phase length. If there is no hcg detected the corpus luteum tapers down progesterone production after about 14 days and the endiometrial lining starts to break down when the progesterone no longer is present to support it.
