How can I get a sample copy of a Pregancy Lab Report

Customer Question

How can I get a sample copy of a Pregancy Lab Report

What kind of labs are you looking for exactly? Are you looking for normal values?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I am looking for a sample lab report that tells when a woman is pregnant from a blood sample
Expert:  Dr. Zach replied 6 years ago.
Typically, the lab report will simply show a level of a hormone called B-HCG. If this hormone is elevated about 25, that she is most likely pregnant (that is the level most home pregnancy kits start to pick up Beta-HCG)

A lab report that 'tells a woman she is pregnant' will simply have the blood sample HCG level and a number. Every lab will have a different 'format' but they will show that hormone level.

I hope this helps.

Expert:  Dr. Zach replied 6 years ago.
harvey I haven't forgotten you. I'm looking around the office for an old one, but now we have electronic medical records so we don't have on more recently. When do you need it by?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
thank you

Harvey,

 

Would an early pregnancy ultrasound report work? We often use a 'dating' scan at 6-11 weeks to confirm the pregnancy.

 

Also, in the office now we don't send out a 'lab' report per say. Typically we confirm pregnancy with a pregnancy strip such as the one found at this link:

The pregnancy test comes back positive only if the Beta HCG is above 25 (on our test). Some tests need 35.

 

I'm sorry but I couldn't find a "pregnancy lab report"... but I could provide you with a pregnancy ultrasound report if you would like

That will work - thanks
Expert:  Dr. Zach replied 6 years ago.
Ok I have a copy, I will of course delete out any identifying information from the patient. If you PM me your e-mail address I can e-mail you a copy when I get home tonight (in 1-2 hours)
