Clinical Information:
  1. While pregnancy is the most likely reason for the presence of hCG in urine, elevated hCG concentrations unrelated to pregnancy have been reported in some patients. Conditions other than normal pregnancy may be associated with detectable hCG, including, For example, ectopic pregnancy or molar pregnancy. Patients with trophoblastic and nontrophoblastic disease may have elevated hCG levels, therefore, the possigility of hCG secreting neoplasms should be eliminated prior to the diagnosis of pregnancy.
  2. hCG may remain detectable for a few days to several weeks after delivery, abortion, natural termination or hCG injections
