No. That's another steroid, similar to progesterone. Entirely different stuff.

hCG is a dimeric protein. It has two arms, an alpha arm and a beta arm. The alpha arm is the same as for TSH, FSH, and LH. The beta arm is unique to hCG. That's why the test is for the beta arm only, and patients post questions like "What's your beta?"
Avoid IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukrainian centers pay shills to post here under numerous sock accounts pretending to be patients in Ukraine. Centers using such deceptive advertising cannot be trusted and should be avoided.

The only meds that could interfer is the HCG trigger shot. But I would assume that is out of your system now. So if you have the the line you are preggers dear!

P.S. I was shaking so hard too handing my DH the stick that I threw it at him. :wink:
