Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your question.

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone produced by the the fertilized egg within the syncytiotrophoblast which later develops to the placenta.

The alpha subunit is the same one used by other sex/pituitary hormones: FSH, LH, and TSH. The beta subunit, though, is unique to HCG and that’s why pregnancy tests look for the presence of beta-HCG.

An hCG level of less than 5mIU/ml is considered negative for pregnancy, and anything above 25mIU/ml is considered positive for pregnancy.

anonymous, please speak with your gynecologist, who ordered the test.
