A number of conditions other than pregnancy,
trophoblastic disease and certain non-trophoblastic neoplasms including testicular tumors, prostate cancer, breast cancer, and lung cancer, cause elevated levels of hCG. Therefore, the presence of hCG in urine should not be used to diagnose pregnancy unless these conditions have been ruled out.

hCG may remain detectable for a few days
to several days after delivery, abortion, or
natural termination.

Drugs which contain hCG result in false positive.
Very low levels of hCG (less than 50 mIU/ml) are present
in urine specimen shortly after implantation.

False negative results may occur when the levels
are below the sensitivity level of the test.

As a rule, hCG levels, if you are pregnant, are between 5 – 50 mIU a week before your period is due. The hCG levels in your system should double every two to three days.

In normal pregnancy, hCG can be
detected in serum as early as 7 days following
conception. The concentration of hCG continues
to rise rapidly, frequently exceeding 100 mIU/ml by the
first missed menstrual period and peaking in the
30-200,000 mIU/ml range by 10-12 weeks into

UPT gives presumptive diagnosis.
Confirmed pregnancy diagnosis should only be made by a physician
