Hope this helps and good luck. ...Read more

When does the smallest , undetectable amount of hCG start to be produced after intercourse? (pregnancy related hcg).

When does the smallest , undetectable amount of hCG start to be produced after intercourse?  (pregnancy related hcg).

Accuracy trumps time: Quantitative blood (serum) tests detect HCG levels at 1 miu/ml. This must be ordered by a doctor. Urine tests advertise detection thresholds between 20 and 100 miu/ml, but this depends on the brand. Qualitative blood tests generally have a threshold of 25 miu/ml, and so are less sensitive than some available home pregnancy tests. Time is less important that accuracy and confirmation by physician. ...Read more

In-between these two values warrants repeating the test in a week or so. See this site for more info. http://americanpregnancy.org/while-pregnant/hcg-levels/ ...Read more

Is free beta HCG different from HCG they measure in early pregnancy? If HCG was elevated at 5w5d, does this mean my HCG will be high at quad screen?

HCG: The HCG is the same test. However, the hcg at the beginning of pregnancy is very variable. When you have the test doen in the second trimester, it is looking for markers for Down's Syndrome and risk rates. So, it does not necessarily mean your quad screen will be elevated again. ...Read more

Hcg levels increase from3144 to 5955 in 3 days with spotting is this still a healthy pregnancy?
