Hcg levels

So I got my blood taken today. Is hcg, beta subunit, qnt, serum a regular pregnancy test or something else? And does anyone know how to read the results or a reliable website I can look into?

Hi ccphelps11

Thank you for sharing your question with the Empowher community.

The hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (better known as hCG) is produced during pregnancy. It is made by cells formed the placenta, which nourishes the egg after it has been fertilized and becomes attached to the uterine wall.
There are two common types of hCG tests. A qualitative hCG test detects if hCG is present in the blood. A quantitative hCG test (or beta hCG) measures the amount of hCG actually present in the blood. Below is a scale that may help you.

hCG levels in weeks from LMP (gestational age)* :

3 weeks LMP: 5 – 50 mIU/ml
4 weeks LMP: 5 – 426 mIU/ml
5 weeks LMP: 18 – 7,340 mIU/ml
6 weeks LMP: 1,080 – 56,500 mIU/ml
7 – 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 – 229,000 mIU/ml
9 – 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 – 288,000 mIU/ml
13 – 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 – 254,000 mIU/ml
17 – 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 – 165,400 mIU/ml
25 – 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 – 117,000 mIU/ml
Non-pregnant females: <5.0 mIU/ml
Postmenopausal females: <9.5 mIU/ml

I hope this helps.

Be well,
