A 38-year-old female asked:
why would hcg values rise (4221 at 6w4d to 7500 7w4d) if nothing shows on ultrasound in the uterus & there is no evidence of ectopic pregnancy?

Very suspicious: Sorry to say but HCG around 7000 it's nearly impossible for an experienced sonographer to miss an intrauterine pregnancy. Sounds very suspicious for ectopic, you usually do not see them on sonogram. Follow up with you doctor asap.
