Is 73 a good beta hcg?

Is 73 a good beta hcg?

Hormone: It is difficult to say if a level of HCG is good, based on one level. Hcg levels tend to increase exponentially in the first trimester of pregnancy. A HCG of 73 could be a normal very early pregnancy at 4+ weeks. Many times we will follow HCG levels over time. ...Read more

Do i check beta hCG in the morning or evening?

Do i check beta hCG in the morning or evening?

Hormone: It depends on how you are checking the HCG level. If you are having blood drawn the time of the day does not matter. However, if you are checking a urine test, then the HCG level is usually checked with the first voided specimen of the day. Reason is that in early pregnancy, HCG levels are normally low and if the urine is dilute (as often happens later in day) then you will have false negative. ...Read more

Did my 1st beta hCG 186 31/10 then my second 6/11 now at 3895 . What does this big increase mean ?

Probably normal: The rule of thumb is that HCG levels will double every 2 to 3 days. More rapid increases are not unusual in a normal healthy pregnancy so I do not consider this a negative. The chance of a twin pregnancy is slightly increased, and it is always useful to get a transvaginal sonogram (ultrasound) early in the pregnancy to confirm dates and viability. ...Read more

My beta hCG was 4297 and I was told I was 4weeks along, although I think I just started my 5th week. What is your opinion?

My beta hCG was 4297 and I was told I was 4weeks along, although I think I just started my 5th week. What is your opinion?

Maybe: How far along you are is based off of the first day if you last menstural period or an ultrasound. The lab value for your hcg has nothing to with dating your pregnancy. ...Read more

Yes.: Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) above 25 mIU/ml indicates pregnancy. Early pregnancy hCG levels usually starts below 1,200. It then doubles every 48-72 hours and increases by at least 60% every two days. This pattern continues until about week 10-12, when the HCG plateaus or drops. Rates of HCG increase can vary according to starting HCG. Those starting above 1200 may rise at slower rates. ...Read more
