Understanding HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal in Ghaziabad


What is HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal in Ghaziabad?

An HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal test helps detect the amount of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormone in the blood, preferably 10 days post conception. It is available at an affordable price in Ghaziabad with Tata 1mg labs. This test is commonly used to confirm pregnancy. However, it can also help detect abnormal pregnancies (such as ectopic or molar pregnancy), some tumors, and possible miscarriages. It is also used as part of a screening test for Down syndrome. 

Beta hCG is a hormone produced by the cells in the developing placenta during pregnancy. The level of this hormone increases during the initial period of pregnancy. However, after 6-7 weeks of conceiving, hCG levels are not very helpful for testing the viability of a pregnancy. Instead, an ultrasound is done to confirm the presence of a fetal heartbeat.

What does HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal measure?

An HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal test measures the levels of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormone in the blood. hCG is released in the blood during pregnancy and can be detected as early as 10 days after conception. The levels of this hormone gradually rise every 2 to 3 days (or 48 to 72 hours) and peak around 8 to 11 weeks after conception. After reaching the peak, the hCG levels decrease and remain steady for the rest of the pregnancy.

Frequently Asked Questions about HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal in Ghaziabad

Q. What is the purpose of an HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal test?

An HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal test examines the amount of the pregnancy hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), which can be detected as early as 10 to 12 days after conception. This test is also used to diagnose abnormal disorders that might cause an increase in beta hCG levels.

Q. How is an HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal test performed?

Your doctor will clean the skin using an antiseptic alcohol cotton swab or wipe and take out a blood sample from your veins using a needle. The blood sample will be stored safely and transported to the lab for analysis.

Q. Is there any risk associated with an HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal test?

There is usually no risk associated with this test. However, some people may feel a slight sting when a needle is pricked and may experience some bleeding that is normal and usually not bothersome. Some people may also experience slight swelling or bruising at the site of the needle prick. Applying ice 3-4 times daily for about a week may help reduce swelling and bruising. If it does not get better, consult your doctor.

Q. What does the positive result of an HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal test in females mean?

The positive result of an HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal test in females usually indicates pregnancy.

Q. Are hCG beta levels positive in ectopic pregnancy as well?

Q. Can hCG beta levels be found positive in men also?

Yes, hCG beta levels can be found positive in men in case of testicular cancer.

Q. Is an HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal test only used for pregnancy?

No, this test is not used just for pregnancy. The hCG hormone is also considered to be a tumor marker as it is secreted by some tumors, e.g., cancer of the uterus, ovarian cancer, lung cancer, and breast cancer. An HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal test is also used to detect some non-cancerous conditions that show increased levels of B-hCG, such as cirrhosis and inflammatory bowel diseases.

Q. What if my beta hCG test report shows negative results?

A negative beta hCG test result indicates you are most likely not pregnant. However, it's crucial to remember that tests taken too soon can result in a false-negative result due to low hCG levels. Therefore, the test might be repeated in a week if there is a chance of pregnancy.

Q. What does the false-negative result of an HCG Beta Total Quantitative, Maternal test mean?

False-negative results indicate that the result gives a negative report even when actually, the patient may be pregnant. The test may be negative in early days after conception. Levels of hCG can vary widely between women with normal pregnancies, so an Ultrasound may be advised in such cases.
