Question
Hi,
My wife got her pregnancy tested at the laboratory. The test of HUMAN CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN (HCG) shows 382 mIU/ml. Does this confirm that she is pregnant? Also we are travelling overseas on our annual vacation tonight for 15 days. Hence wanted to check if it is fine to travel and what precautions do we need to take. We will only be able to meet a doctor once we are back on 7th XXXXXXX
