What does hCG do?It’s role is to prevent the disintegration of the corpus luteum, secretes estrogen and progesterone. The production of hCG plays a critical part in your pregnancy.
What do low hCG Levels mean?Should your healthcare provider determine that your hCG levels may be low, then this may mean that your conception date was miscalculated; that you may have an ectopic pregnancy or that you may be in danger of having a miscarriage. However, it is also possible to have a perfectly healthy pregnancy with low levels.
What do high hCG levels mean?As with a low level, a high level may also indicate that your conception date was calculated incorrectly. It may also mean that you have a multiple pregnancy (twins) or even that you may have a Molar Pregnancy.
