HCG is an important hormone especially during pregnancy, this is because HCG is a growth hormone used to help grow a fetus. Low levels of HCG of HCG deficiency in women can cause infertility and in many cases can cause miscarriage and underdevelopment of the fetus. The reason HCG levels are so important is because of it’s role in promoting the process of pregnancy, HCG does this by promoting the luteinizing hormone that triggers ovulation which won’t happen if HCG is too low and or other female hormones are out of balance.
Excessive amounts of HCG can be used to indicate the presence of some cancers, the HCG test can show abnormally high levels which could indicate tumor markers.
