Pregnancy Blood Test Explained
This test will give a quantitative reading for Beta HCG in Blood and give a positive or negative pregnancy result.
A Quantitative Beta hCG pregnancy test not only shows if BhCG is present in the blood, but also how much. The results can be detected by a pregnancy blood test from 11-12 days after conception. As a rule of thumb the BhCG levels will double every 48 hours initially and then every 72 hours.
BhCG levels will peak after about 2-3 months of pregnancy and will then start to decline and stabilise for the rest of the pregnancy. Pregnancy blood test results show beta hcg levels and estimations of weeks pregnant.
As the level increases every 2-3 days many ladies prefer to order two tests to make sure that the level is continuing to rise and that therefore a viable pregnancy is more likely. To order a second test you need to place a separate order.
