What is Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG)?
Our medical-grade tests use urine to check for human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in your body. HCG is a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy, helping to thicken the uterine lining to support an embryo’s growth. Levels of hCG rise after conception and reach its peak at about 10 weeks of pregnancy.
