Pregnancy Progression Blood Test Panel
This panel evaluates the two most common hormones, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and progesterone, which are typically used for monitoring purposes in the early stages of pregnancy.
Order the pregnancy progression blood test panel to evaluate hormone levels, which can help ensure that a pregnancy is progressing normally and determine the likelihood of possible problems that could occur in later terms of a pregnancy. Two of the most commonly monitored hormones during pregnancy are human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and progesterone, which are both included in this panel. In the case of a high-risk pregnancy, these hormones may be monitored periodically throughout the pregnancy.
Early weeks in pregnancy are some of the most crucial. This is when the fetus's development begins, and the body prepares itself to carry it to term. The production of different hormones affects changes in the body during pregnancy. These hormones regulate and stimulate the production of other chemicals and hormones necessary for the healthy development of the fetus.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) - HCG is a hormone that the placenta produces. For the first 10 weeks or so of pregnancy, hCG levels typically increase, then level off and begin to decrease. The majority of pregnancy tests use the detection of hCG as confirmation of pregnancy.
Progesterone - Progesterone is a hormone originally produced by the ovaries and, later, by the placenta during pregnancy. During the first trimester, progesterone levels usually rise and then level out.
