I got a positive pregnancy test Saturday. MOnday my HCG was 152 and yesterday it went down to 143. Is it possible to have such a slight decrease and have a healthy pregnancy?

I got a positive pregnancy test Saturday. MOnday my HCG was 152 and yesterday it went down to 143. Is it possible to have such a slight decrease and have a healthy pregnancy?

Unlikely: The hCG levels typically rise throughout pregnancy until about 12 to 14 weeks when the levels decrease slowly for a few weeks. In early pregnancy, when the levels fall as you describe, it is a sign of a failed pregnancy and there is very little chance for a successful pregnancy outcome. You should be prepared for a miscarriage. See your doctor and keep your followup appointments. ...Read more

Hi I miscarried on June 14 on July 15 I had a positive pregnancy test can I still have HCG in my body or am I pregnant?

Hi I miscarried on June 14 on July 15 I had a positive pregnancy test can I still have HCG in my body or am I pregnant?

Yes and Yes: If your HCG level was not followed after your miscarriage until it was zero, then a positive HCG level now could mean that you did not clear out all the tissue or that you have HCG producing tissue still in the uterus. This could be a very serious situation and should be check out soon. It is also possible that you are pregnant again. ...Read more

I'm 4 weeks and 6 days pregnant. Got positive pregnancy test at 15 dpo. Initial hCG =26 and progesterone =24. At 19dpo hcg=46 & Prg =3.9. Will I m/c?

I'm 4 weeks and 6 days pregnant. Got positive pregnancy test at 15 dpo. Initial hCG =26 and progesterone =24. At 19dpo hcg=46 & Prg =3.9. Will I m/c?

Hard to say: It is possible but not necessarily so. Supplemental progesterone may be indicated but any one test can certainly be wrong. It's not time to give up hope yet. Best wishes for a good outcome. Remember, most miscarriages are because there was something wrong with the baby and not because of anything you did or didn't do. ...Read more

Can implantation bleeding occur at 11 dpo? My question is how long does HCG take to get positive pregnancy test after implantion bleeding?

Can implantation bleeding occur at 11 dpo? My question is how long does HCG take to get positive pregnancy test after implantion bleeding?

Probably 2 to 3 days: Under normal circumstances, it is estimated that a healthy fertilized egg takes about 7 days to travel from the site of fertilization in the Fallopian tube into the uterine cavity. If all is going well, implantation into the endometrium (at times associated with bleeding) is believed to occur over 2 to 3 days; betaHCG. Can then be detected by a sensitive blood biochemical assay soon thereafter. ...Read more

Positive pregnancy test the day after intercourse then hCG levels were 600ml/iu 2 days later? Pregnancy this soon?
