The Purpose of an hCG With Gestational Table
A blood test is an ideal method for confirming your pregnancy, and calculating your hCG by gestational age helps you determine how far along in your pregnancy. Personalabs offers a wide array of prenatal tests so you can take the best care of yourself — and your baby.
What Does the hCG Gestational Table Test Measure?
This test measures the presence of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) in the blood to confirm if you are pregnant or monitor the progress of your pregnancy. The results are expressed in numbers, reflecting the actual level of hCG present, as opposed to our qualitative pregnancy blood test, which shows a “positive” or “negative” result. (At-home urine tests also can measure HCG, but they typically don’t have the reliability and accuracy you get with blood tests.)
Who Should Take an hCG Test With a Gestational Table Blood Test?
Women should take this test if they are showing early symptoms associated with pregnancy:
- Tender or swollen breasts
- Late periods
- Nausea or vomiting
- A need to urinate frequently
The hCG gestational table test is also useful for women who want to clarify how far along they are in their pregnancy.
