I was seen in the ER for bleeding in my 6th week of pregnancy. My hCG levels were 4483. A week later my hCG was at 1751 and now 5 days later at 1883?

Not Normal: Sorry but your HCG levels are more consistent with a non-viable pregnancy. Bleeding this early could be from an abnormal pregnancy & the next step is to confirm this with an ultrasound. Options include awaiting spontaneous miscarriage or a D&C if the bleeding becomes heavy or if significant pain occurs. Again, sorry for your pregnancy loss. ...Read more

Had very early pregnancy that ended at 4w5d,all symptoms stopped, still haven't bled. How long without bleeding until I should worry. 2 weeks late now

Had very early pregnancy that ended at 4w5d,all symptoms stopped, still haven't bled. How long without bleeding until I should worry. 2 weeks late now

Uncertain: If your pregnancy ended at 4 weeks 5 days from last period, that means the embryo was only 2 weeks along in its development. It might have been resorbed without any bleeding. I have two questions. 1: how did you know you miscarried? 2. Is it possible you are still pregnant? I would recommend another pregnancy test. If it's negative you should have another period in about two weeks. ...Read more

You may wish to wait for 5-10 days before repeating the test. Retained products of conception may cause more delay in the test becoming negative and may require D&C. ...Read more

I took a pregnancy test bout a week ago and it showed posative. I do not know how far along I am, but i have been bleeding all day. Is that normal?

No: Is it spotting or bleeding like a menstrual bleed. If it is latte, you should repeat the pregnancy test. You could have spontaneous loss of an early pregnancy, which is not uncommon. About 25% of early pregnancies are lost, mostly due to chromosomal defects in the embryo. Usually the only manifestation is a slightly heavy, delayed period.
