My hCG went from 11000 to 49000 at 7 weeks. Should it be higher than that? My previous test was at 6 weeks pregnant. My progesterone level is 79

My hCG went from 11000 to 49000 at 7 weeks. Should it be higher than that? My previous test was at 6 weeks pregnant. My progesterone level is 79

That is about right: During very early pregnancy, the hgc rises/doubles in about 48-72 hours. Say your is about 72 hours=3 days. 11000 doubles to 22000, then again doubles another 72hrs, thus =44000, with 5000 left for the 7th day; just an estimate. Just remember, everyone is different. Follow doc's advice. Congrats on the pregnancy and best of luck to you.

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

9 weeks pregnant, progesterone level at 13.1, currently on crinone (progesterone gel) 8%, have some cramps here and there, but no bleeding. Saw heartbeat, what to expect?

9 weeks pregnant, progesterone level at 13.1, currently on crinone (progesterone gel) 8%, have some cramps here and there, but no bleeding. Saw heartbeat, what to expect?

You should be fine: Congratulations, you are pregnant! Try not to treat the numbers, there really isn't much you can do about it. While your physician may place you on Progesterone supplementation, there is no evidence that this decreases miscarriage risk. That being said, it can't hurt. If the fetal size is appropriate and the heart beat is normal, try to relax and enjoy your pregnancy. Best of luck!

When I was not pregnant, my progesterone level on day 21 of cycle was 15.6.a month later with 4 week pregnancy, it's 5? What is wrong?

What: Is your HCG level. Unfortunately, your low Prog could indicate a fetus that is not growing properly. This can mean a poss mc. Your doc will prob monitor your levels. An US will not show much as you are very early. Good luck

I am 5 wks. Pregnant. My progesterone level is 11.9.My ob/gyn prescribed me crinone (progesterone gel) 8%.Is it effective in increasing my level? Is my level alarming?

I am 5 wks. Pregnant. My progesterone level is 11.9.My ob/gyn prescribed me crinone (progesterone gel) 8%.Is it effective in increasing my level? Is my level alarming?

Not alarming: 11.9 is at the lower edge of normal for 5 weeks gestational age. Crinone (progesterone gel) 8% is a recommended treatment for keeping Progesterone levels high in the first trimester in an attempt to prevent miscarriage due to inadequate Progesterone levels. It's usually continued for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

Probably ok: Congratulations, you are pregnant! Try not to treat the numbers, there really isn't much you can do about it.

What should my progesterone level be at 5 weeks pregnant?

What should my progesterone level be at 5 weeks pregnant?

Highly variable: There is not a definitive number. Less than five has a high rate of miscarriage. Greater than 25 has a high success rate. Anything in between can not be used statistically for predictions.

How can I increase my progesterone level if I am 19 weeks pregnant?

Healthy diet: At the second trimester stage, the placenta is a Progesterone factory. A healthy balanced diet including hormone building blocks like cholesterol can help hormone production. Injections of Progesterone are given to prolong pregnancy in some cases.

I'm 4 weeks pregnant. If my progesterone level is low what does the dr do?

Progesterone: Many doctors will put you on a micronized Progesterone supplement. This may be either a pill or a vaginal gel. Some doctors will check your Progesterone level again while on a supplement. A pelvic ultrasound is helpful as well to check on the fetus.

Chances of being pregnant on chlomid 50mg? On cycle day 21 I had progesterone level of 7.5Took pregnancy test today neg. Is 7.5 to low?

Chances of being pregnant on chlomid 50mg? On cycle day 21 I had progesterone level of 7.5Took pregnancy test today neg. Is 7.5 to low?

Want P4 higher: While it's true that the ideal peak progesterone (P4) level is 12 or above, it's still possible to get pregnant on a cycle with a P4 level of 7.5. Your doctor should consider increasing your dose to 100mg next time. The fact that your home pregnancy test is negative pretty much confirms that you are not pregnant.

Can I be pregnant with a progesterone level of 30?

Yes: Yes, a Progesterone level at a week after ovulation (usually day 21) is done to check for objective signs of ovulation. A level over 10 is good, over 20 is great! Even if you ovulate, age over 40 is a neg factor (unfortunately). Many eggs are simply not fertile. If you really desire a baby, see a reproductive specialist soon!

Can I be pregnant with a progesterone level of 150?

Can I be pregnant with a progesterone level of 150?

Yes you could be: That level of Progesterone could be consistent with pregnancy. A bhcg level should be checked to determine pregnancy.
