In our laboratories, we conduct complete prenatal hormonal testing ( β chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG), LH, FSH, estradiol and progesterone), providing immediate results which can be ideal in cases of IVF (in vitro fertilization), as well as complete hematological and virological control.
B chorionic gonadotropin (β-hcg)
Β-hcg is secreted by placental cells and helps us diagnose pregnancy in the early stages. Its levels are elevated > 5mg from the 10th day of conception onwards. It is important to measure it, as in the early stages of a pregnancy the image of the fetus cannot be captured and the only way to monitor it is through these rates while the B-hcg levels double every 2 days. Along with the β chorionic gonadotropin, it is advisable to check estradiol and progesterone levels as they are necessary for the development of the fetus. In our laboratories we have a modern hormonal analyzer with the capability of providing immediate results of all hormones in cases of emergency throughout the day.
