HcG may reach detectable limits within 11-12 days of conception. HcG is produced by the placenta and reaches a peak between the 7th and 10th week of gestation.
A Quantitative Beta HcG pregnancy test not only shows if HcG is present in the blood, but also how much. The results are expressed in IU/L (International Units per Litre) and can be detected by a pregnancy blood test from 11-12 days after conception. As a rule of thumb the HcG levels will double every 48 hours initially and then every 72 hours.
Pregnancy blood test results show beta HcG levels and estimations of weeks pregnant. Your results are emailed to you in PDF format.
Beta HcG levels will peak after about 2-3 months of pregnancy and will then start to decline and stabilise for the rest of the pregnancy.
We aim to get results to you same day, providing you attend for your blood test by 9am Monday – Friday.
