Conceived H Cg Diet
refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more
14dpo hCG 174, 16dpo hCG 342, 22dpo hCG 5656, progesterone 54. Could fast doubling time indicate molar pregnancy?
No: Molar pregnancies are almost never diagnosed this early. Good news! The hCG is rising at a mostly appropriate rate, the "doubling time" is not exact. Why are so many quants being done so many days in a row? ...Read more
Yes: There is no medical contraindication to eating dates during pregnancy. They supply niacin, folate, (folic acid) vitamin B-6, pantothenic acid, zinc, manganese, fiber and magnesium. One study found that the consumption of date fruit in the last 4 weeks before labour significantly reduced the need for induction and augmentation of labour, and produced a more favourable, but non-significant, delivery outcome. ...Read more
Ivf pregnant week8 dr confirm triplet blighted hCG 8k. However saw a yolk sac in 1sac@week9 when consulted another dr. Chances of remain preg? Week7 hcg7k
Miscarriage?: There should be more than a yolk sac by now. There should be a fetus with a heart beat. It would appear that you have a missed abortion or what is normally called a miscarriage. This is unfortunate. Your infertility specialist that performed the ivf would be the best one to determine this. ...Read more

Lmp1/28.Hcg levels 8968, 8956, 12000.Yolk sac measured @ 5w6d no baby.Ectopic ruled out.Could late ovulation be making my dates wrong?Blighted ovum?
Repeat Sono.: The HCG levels you provide are meaningless without a times scale. You are about 8 days less along than would be expected from the lmp. Could be late ovulation vs blighted ovum. A repeat sono in a week will answer the question. If viable there should be an embryo and a heartbeat. Good luck. ...Read more
Lmp 2/24/13. +serum pregnant 4/1/13.Spotting started 4/10/13 with hCG 215. Us showed no fetus, small sac. 4/12 hCG 310. Could this be a viable pregnancy?
Early pregnancy: The timing is right for a 5 week pregnancy but the HCG is much lower than may be normal. If you are not having any spotting, pain or bleeding, then repeating the ultrasound in 1 - 2 weeks will let you know definitively what is going on. Still, if any of the other symptoms occur, you should see your doctor. ...Read more
Surgical abortion 7/7/15.blood hcg level 8/6/15= 9. 8/19/15 ovulation positive.8/22/15 pg test positive. No real period since the abortion.Help please?
Pregnant: The most likely explanation is that you are pregnant again. Did you have sex after the abortion? If your BHCG was 9 back on 8.6.15 then that gives the doctor a point of comparison. Another BHCG can be done now. That number can be compared to the other to see if this is a new pregnancy or lingering BHCG from the pregnancy termination. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
LMP 29 February, 2 days late. Hcg blood test shows 2-3 weeks pregnancy & dark positive preg. test. but only GS visible by TVU. why so low HCG?
Its probably safe: It will raise testosterone levels in men. The HCG diet has had side effects, but those are due to rapid weight loss (gall stones) and eating only 500 calories per day, starvation is not a great plan. I doubt the HCG itself causes many or any problems if used in low doses. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
16dpo hCG 342, 22dpo hCG 5656. Progesterone level 14dpo was 54. Normal pregnancy or possibility of molar pregnancy due to high progesterone?
Miscarriage(7 Weeks) Nov21,heavy bleeding & spotting until Nov29. Had(+)preg test Dec9. Obgyn withUSG confirmed new preg Dec10. hCG drop_am I pregnant?
Follow up: If you have a positive pregnancy test, you should see a doctor right away. You need to confirm that your miscarriage was completed, and not an ectopic or a continuing pregnancy. It seems unlikely that you could have a positive test from a new pregnancy so soon after miscarriage. You expect to ovulate no sooner than 2 weeks after the loss, and the test usually doesn't turn positive for 10 days. ...Read more
Femara (letrozole) cd 3-7. Ovidrel shot 7/19.Iui on 7/20 & 7/21. Ovulation confirmed. Progesterone level is 9.38 hcg 719. Could i be pregnant? too early to test?
Patience...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after "sex" (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
