What are the causes of a high hCG level?

What are the causes of a high hCG level?

Pregnancy or tumor: Hcg is the normal hormonal product of the placenta and so levels are high in pregnancy; a urine pregnancy test looks for hcg. However, some tumors also produce hcg, so a high level in a man, or in a non-pregnant woman, strongly suggests a tumor that needs to be found and treated as soon as possible. ...Read more

Can I be pregnant with hcg level less than 1? I haven't had sex in 3 months. What would cause a hcg level if not pregnant?

Can I be pregnant with hcg level less than 1? I haven't had sex in 3 months. What would cause a hcg level if not pregnant?

In reality, no.: One can "be pregnant" with HCG less than 1, but only BEFORE the moment when embryo implantation starts. After that, blood HCG quickly rises above 1. If you define "being pregnant" as AFTER a successful embryo implantation, the answer changes to: no, you cannot be pregnant with HCG less than 1. Normal men, kids (>3 mo. old), and non-pregnant, pre-menopausal women get HCG results less than 1 or 2. ...Read more

Is a hCG level of 512 at 5weeks ok?

Is a hCG level of 512 at 5weeks ok?

Yes: This varies amongst women. A normal level at 5 weeks is anywhere between 18 and 7,340. As long as you're having an appropriate rise in your HCG level (doubling every 48-72 hrs), then there's nothing to worry about. There's no need for you to continue checking your HCG level, however, unless you have concerns for miscarriage or your doctor recommends it. Congrats on your pregnancy! ...Read more

Variable.: I assume you are asking how long it can take for woman to ovulate after pregnancy. It depends on how the pregnancy ended. The shortest intervals are after pregnancy terminations such as d and c and ovulation can occur even within 2 weeks. Longer intervals are associated with full term deliveries, and breastfeeding can lengthen this as well. It still could be within the first month though. ...Read more

Following d&c surgery how long does it take a woman's hCG level to go down completely?

Following d&c surgery how long does it take a woman's hCG level to go down completely?

Less than 2 weeks: The HCG half-life is about 1.5 days and urine pregnancy test should be negative in less than two weeks. If it is positive four weeks after the procedure, that indicates residual HCG producing tissue and would require additional treatment. See this site for more info.
