It doesn't tell you how far along you are, just that you are pregnant. HCG is the hormone women produce when they are pregnant. Here are more opinions and answers from other FAQ Farmers: * Your HCG levels double every 2-3 days during your pregnancy. * HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone produced ONLY during pregnancy. Pregnancy tests screen for this by a urine test, it's there or it's not. * Contrary to Jamie's response, your HCG level can indicate roughly how far along you are in your pregnancy. Ask your doctor. * HCG is not only produced when pregnant. Males can have HCG levels high enough to be detected by a home pregnancy test and women can also, when they are NOT pregnant. The HCG can be produced by certain tumors. In pregnancy HCG keeps the corpus luteum around to produce estrogen and progesterone, which are necessary in pregnancy. Also, HCG levels differ from each pregnant woman and the doubling is the most important factor. A high HCG level can also indicate a multi gestation pregnancy

Hcg is the level of a pregnancy hormone that increases throughout the pregnancy. An Hcg level of 229 means that a woman is in the very early stages of pregnancy, or is having a miscarriage.
