Has anyone had a high hCG and then found out they had a blighted ovum?

Has anyone had a high hCG and then found out they had a blighted ovum?

Possible: Blighted ovum is still a pregnancy and HCG is produced resulting in positive pregnancy test. The actual level of HCG is not helpful in making a diagnosis of blighted ovum. ...Read more

Do you think that an hCG level on apr 14 of 958 and then one on apr 23 of 14885 indicates a blighted ovum. The ges sac is present at 5weeks 5days.

Do you think that an hCG level on apr 14 of 958 and then one on apr 23 of 14885 indicates a blighted ovum. The ges sac is present at 5weeks 5days.

US is more accurate: There is a wide range of "normal" beta-hcg levels. It is difficult to draw meaningful conclusions based on the 2 numbers you provided. If dates are correct, a transvaginal ultrasound should show a yolk sac and fetal pole by 5 weeks 5 days. It could be the dates are off a bit in which case it may just be too early. A follow-up ultrasound can determine if this is a viable pregnancy. ...Read more

Diagnosed with blighted ovum. Blood hCG =271. Could I have ovulated that day? Or would it take at least 14 days for another ovulation?

Diagnosed with blighted ovum. Blood hCG =271. Could I have ovulated that day? Or would it take at least 14 days for another ovulation?

HCG levels: HCG is produced from a pregnancy, and "271" is very low. Ovulation does not cause HCG production. If you had a "blighted ovum" and the HCG is still measurable, there is still viable tissue inside your womb. You may need a minor surgery procedure to clear this from your womb (uterus). Once the HCg is zero, ovulation may occur about 2-3 weeks later or more. ...Read more

Too early: Your levels are rising normally so at this time everything looks ok. A blighted ovum can not be diagnosed at this time as it is too early. Everything is rising at normal levels so there is no reason to suspect it at this time ...Read more

Unclear question: First of all, I am sorry for your multiple fetal losses, however, there is not enough information to answer your question. Critical data such as lmp, manner of pregnancy (iui or ivf) are missing. Talk to your re about your concerns as he/she has all of that data at hand. ...Read more

Will my hCG levels continue to double with a blighted ovum? Mine are more than doubling ges sac measuring 5w5d however I'm 5w2d. Hcg 4967 no yolk sac

Will my hCG levels continue to double with a blighted ovum? Mine are more than doubling ges sac measuring 5w5d however I'm 5w2d. Hcg 4967 no yolk sac

Generally not: If your HCG is doubling and the sac is approx. Consistent with your dates, chances are that you do not have a blighted ovum - could be a normal pregnancy. Keep checking sonos and hcg's - may need intervention if signs of fetal activity / growth are not evident. Good luck. ...Read more

Had 2 healthy pregnancies. Now had a blighted ovum in Feb and am currently pregnant but have low HCG and been put on progesterone. What's going on?

Had 2 healthy pregnancies. Now had a blighted ovum in Feb and am currently pregnant but have low HCG and been put on progesterone. What's going on?

Unclear: Not sure what you mean by having a 'low' HCG. Typically you are doubling appropriately or you are not. The progesterone is usually supplemented if it has been shown to be low for the gestational age. You have two term, uncomplicated pregnancies. The blighted ovum is a fluke occurrence that cannot be corrected for. Not sure what is going on. Talk to your doctor ...Read more

Did us ges sac and yolk sac but no baby, last period feb 7 2014. Hcg level 15000 is this a blighted ovum?

Did us ges sac and yolk sac but no baby, last period feb 7 2014. Hcg level 15000 is this a blighted ovum?

Maybe: But your ultrasound was done too early to say, just as likely everything is fine. If feb 7 was your certain lmp, then you'd be exactly 6 w 1d today (3/21/14,) ultrasound next week would give you a much more certain answer. ...Read more
