Understand hCG in Early Pregnancy Detection
Early pregnancy detection is crucial for ensuring a healthy pregnancy. The sooner a woman knows she is pregnant, the sooner she can begin taking care of herself and her growing baby.
The Importance of hCG in Early Pregnancy Detection
HCG (Human chorionic gonadotropin), the pregnancy hormone, is important to protect and nourish the growing embryo. A female’s body starts to make hCG once a fertilized egg implants into the endometrium (the lining of the uterus) and the hCG levels tend to increase rapidly early on in your pregnancy. HCG can be detected in the urine and blood 10 to 14 days after conception. The blood test can detect smaller amounts of hCG and therefore is more precise.
Early Pregnancy Detection: The Importance of Taking a Pregnancy Test and Seeking Prenatal Care
At the period of 4 weeks of pregnancy, the embryo (called egg before) implants further into the uterus which makes more hCG. This makes the body produce other hormones such as progesterone and estrogen. These hormones all together build up a person’s uterus lining and signal the ovaries to stop releasing eggs which is the reason why you stop having the period.
Early pregnancy detection can be critical for a woman’s health and the health of her developing fetus. Detecting pregnancy early on allows for early prenatal care, which can help reduce the risk of complications during pregnancy and childbirth.
If you suspect you may be pregnant, it’s important to take a pregnancy test as soon as possible. Some common early signs of pregnancy include missed periods, fatigue, nausea, and breast tenderness. If you receive a positive result on a pregnancy test, it’s important to make an appointment with your healthcare provider to confirm the pregnancy and receive prenatal care.
Generally speaking, an hCG level of less than 5 mIU/ml (milli-international units per milliliter) is a negative hCG result while above or equal to 25 mIU/mL is considered a positive result. It’s not necessary to check the hCG level regularly if the pregnancy is confirmed unless you are showing signs of a potential problem, for example, bleeding, having experienced a miscarriage before, or experiencing severe cramping.
The Artron Ultra-sensitive Pregnancy Test is for Early Pregnancy Detection. It is an antigen-capture immunochromatographic assay, which detects the presence of HCG in human serum or urine samples. The detection limit for the Artron A01-01-130 HCG Test Kit is 20 mIU/ml HCG, and for the A01-02-130 HCG test kit (Ultra-sensitive) is 10 mIU/ml. Urine samples containing HCG levels equal to or greater than the detection limit will test positive. Samples containing HCG at levels less than the detection limit may also produce a very faint positive line.
The Artron Ultra-sensitive Pregnancy Test is easy to use and delivers results in just a few minutes. The test requires only a small urine or serum sample and comes with all the necessary components for accurate and reliable testing. The test strip is designed to be highly sensitive and can detect even very low levels of hCG, ensuring that you get accurate results every time.
The Artron Ultra-sensitive Pregnancy Test is designed for home use. It’s a popular choice for doctors, hospitals, and clinics, as well as for women who want to test for pregnancy in the comfort of their own homes. The test is affordable, convenient, and highly accurate, making it an ideal choice for anyone who wants to test for pregnancy quickly and easily.
