What can I do if my hCG level is 4725! and im only 4wks, does that mean I could be having twins?

My hCG level is at bit high on 12th week of pregnancy. What does tht mean. Do I need to worry abt it?

My hCG level is at bit high on 12th week of pregnancy. What does tht mean. Do I need to worry abt it?

Need an ultrasound: If you beta HCG is elevated, it may be normal or a sign of problems. A dramatically elevated HCG can be a "molar" pregnancy, which is a very abnormal placenta, usually without a fetus. This would be seen with ultrasound, twins will cause an elevated hcg. Sometimes fetal or placental problems can cause an elevated hcg, and again a detailed ultrasound would evaluate this. ...Read more
