An HCG test detects the HCG hormone that is present in large amounts during pregnancy. Testing this via blood tells your doctor what level you are at, if you are pregnant, as well as if the pregnancy is on track and healthy.
It tests the amount of pregnancy hormones in your body.
It’s a blood work done to confirm pregnancy! There will be 2 rounds taken 48 hours apart and they will confirm and compare HCG a levels if they increase dramatically within that time frame you are pregnant
Congrats in advance
Why did you not ask your doctor
Human chorionic gonadotropin. We test for this in urine pregnancy tests as well as blood tests. There are different indications for the reason for testing for this through blood.

Okay not to be rude buuuut… If you don’t feel comfortable asking your doctor these questions you need to either a) get to know them better or b) find a doctor you’re comfortable asking questions. My doctor already knows I’ll ask about 25 questions per visit. He’s seen me in most vulnerable positions and I think everyone can benefit from learning to consider your healthcare team one of the few non judgmental places. Now with that being said they check your hormone levels for several reasons, it can be to confirm you’re really pregnant, it can be to see if ur baby’s growing too fast too slow, it can be because they want to see how far along you are, there’s several reasons. Just ask your doctor
It’s a blood test that check your HCG levels.
The doctor will give you the form. Take it to the nurse, she will draw the blood, doctor will call you back in for the results in a day or so
