The main role of this hormone is to stimulate the corpus luteum ,which is a kind of structure that is created when the  ovary releases an egg and continues to produce estrogen along with progesterone. These hormones are important as they will perform the main role of maintaining the endometrial lining.

The levels of HCG beta can be easily seen in blood test around 11 days after conception and 14 days after urine test.

 The Levels of HCG test includes in different week in 3 week sit seems very low around 5-50mlU/mL and in 40 weeks around 117000. We have seen the great difference between women at some point.

 In some cases ,if HCG beta is not doubling after the first week of pregnancy. Then in that case your pregnancy is ectopic which means it is taking out of the uterus. In this type of pregnancy , there  is  a slow rise in HCG beta. Apart from that women may also have blighted ovum in where only  the gestational sac takes development but the embryo is not possible. Pregnancy is normal in this condition, but in this case slow development takes place. Don’t ignore this part and consult your doctors  to have  a  healthy pregnancy.

This type of pregnancy normally occurs when there is an error in the fertilization of the egg by the sperm. Luckily these form of pregnancies are rare and if molar pregnancy does occur it can be removed by suction. If the baby is a girl, the HCG beta numbers will be high.
