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

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

No: The only thing about an HCG level is that the absolute number isn't the most important thing. Usually the lab is repeated after 48 hours at least once to determine if the level is increasing appropriately. It should double every 48 hours but can still be normal is it goes up less than that.

I'm perfectly sure I'm 4w2d pregnant (gestational age). My hCG level is 690. Is it too high? Could it be twin pregnancy?

HCG: Twins are always possible. The HCG number may be inaccurate in terms of dating. The best way to be sure, or to diagnose twinning is to have an ultrasound.

Hcg level doubling fast, do I have twins?

Ultrasound: No way to tell for sure until you get to a 6 week ultrasound, before then it's pure guesswork.

What are the hCG levels for twins vs singletons?

What are the hCG levels for twins vs singletons?

Approx double: Hcg is a reflection of the amount of tissue secreting it i.e. Trophoblastic tissue. Therefore it is approximately doubled.

Hcg levels dropped - vanishing twin, should I be concerned?

Aware: If this is what is happening I would say be aware, rather than be concerned. The outcomes are not guaranteed but they are often very good, this happens a lot. Best wishes.

My hcg level has been doubling ever 38 hours. Is this a sign I could be having twins?

My hcg level has been doubling ever 38 hours. Is this a sign I could be having twins?

May be: HCG levels vary widely in normal pregnancies and are not a very reliable sign of twin pregnancy. An ultrasound examination would be better for determining twins. You may consult this site for HCG level info. Http://americanpregnancy. Org/while-pregnant/hcg-levels/

What is the hCG level for twins? Double?

About: The threshhold for diagnosing pregnancy is still 10 miu hcg, but overall the HCG "load" is higher...Aproximately double.

My hCG level went from 600 to 23, 000 in a week, does that indicate twins?

Not necessarily: That is a steep rise and can indicate a multiple gestation or can be indicative of a molar pregnancy. I see an ultrasound in your near future to sort this out.

Wait for scan: HCG results in normal pregnancies vary by a wide margin. HCG level alone is not a good indicator of twin pregnancy. You may consult this site for more info. Http://www. Pregnancy-baby-care. Com/articles/168/during-pregnancy/hcg-levels-during-pregnancy. Html

My beta hcg level was 144 on Mar 21. 2 days after (Mar 23) it was 540. Is this increase of HCG a problem? Or can it be twins?

My beta hcg level was 144 on Mar 21. 2 days after (Mar 23) it was 540. Is this increase of HCG a problem? Or can it be twins?

Bhcg: That is a good increase consistent with a progressing pregnancy. It is too early at this point to tell if twins or anything else is occurring, continue to follow with your physician.

My hCG level at 6w was 62, 895 and at 6w5d 120, 896. Is this possibly twins? The 6w ultrasound showed 1 for sure and a light spot in the opp. Corner.

May be: Hcg levels have a wide variation in normal pregnancy. In general levels are higher in twin pregnancies. See this site for more info. Http://americanpregnancy. Org/duringpregnancy/hcglevels. Html.

My HCG levels were at 1621 on Sept 18. If it takes around 9 days for implantation, is there anyway I would have ovulated sept 2? I'm not having twins

Early pregnancy: We can get a better idea of the conception date after your have had your dating and viability scan. This ultrasound will help determine who far along you are and make sure the pregnancy is normal.

Is it ok to have twins in 5-6 week gestiona, one sac but no heart beats. Hcg levels, 51330 iu/ml and after two days it became 57396iu/ml is it normal?

Is it ok to have twins in 5-6 week gestiona, one sac but no heart beats. Hcg levels, 51330 iu/ml and after two days it became 57396iu/ml is it normal?

Probably not: The HCG should double in 2 days at that point in the gestation. The example you give had only a minimal increase. This does not sound like a viable pregnancy.

What shud b the beta hCG level at twin 9week pregnancy, is it normal?

Wide range: Beta HCG in twin pregnancies is normally elevated above the level of singleton pregnancies, but has a wide range. At 9-10 weeks the levels should be around 250, 000 to 400, 000, however, the trending may be as important in the evaluation. Twin pregnancy is considered high risk and should have regular visits with ob.

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.
