stoopid question, is HCG and mIU the same?


Just wondering if HCG and mIU levels are the same?

can you only know you HCG from bloodtests?

HCG is your pregnancy hormone. MIU is how much hormone is in your blood. MIU stands for "million international units", so HCG per MIU means how much of the hormone is in each million international units per your blood.

I hope this makes sense. In simply means that, for example, if your HCG is 232, it means that for every million units in your blood, there is 232 units of pregnancy hormone, HCG. This is why it is read as "232/mIU". Make sense?

HCG is the hormone that is created when you're pregnant.
mUI is the unit of measurement by which they measure the amount of pregnancy hormone (HCG) in your body.

So, if your HCG is 100, that means that you have 100 million international units of HCG in your body.
