Gona-Max is a glycoprotein, a placental hormone, which contains two subunits α and β (the alpha and beta subunit of the chorionic gonadotropin). hormones, and the beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin is unique to this hormone, and this is different from TSH, FSH and LH.
It is the beta subunit of the chorionic gonadotropin that is the basis of the pregnancy test. Beta chorionic gonadotropin begins to stand out in the first weeks of pregnancy, by week 7-11 its number increases several thousand times, after which it gradually decreases. That is why the analysis of chorionic gonadotropin during pregnancy and the monitoring of its level is important – its decrease or deceleration may indicate an ectopic pregnancy or a threatened miscarriage.
In addition, a woman who cannot become pregnant should be tested for antibodies to human chorionic gonadotropin – they block the activity of CG, which causes a decrease in the level of placental lactogen, progesterone, estradiol. It is chorionic gonadotropin that prevents rejection of the fetus, its intrauterine death, which is why it is important to monitor its level. Women with antibodies to chorionic gonadotropin in the blood are advised to undergo plasmapheresis and in vitro fertilization.
Chorionic gonadotropin is usually determined in pregnancy only that is considered normal, but this does not mean that the analysis of beta chorionic gonadotropin does not make non-pregnant women and men. If a hormone-producing tumor is suspected, a test is prescribed that reveals chorionic gonadotropin in the blood for men and women who have not confirmed their pregnancy.
In addition to the hormone known medical drug gonadotropin chorionic. Its use is practiced for the treatment of functional disorders of the reproductive system of women and men.
