At 3722 and a doubling BHCG a pregnancy should be seen regardless of whether or not it is normal pregnancy or an ectopic. Follow up is warranted with your doctor. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant if hCG levels are above 100 after a recent ectopic pregnancy? How low would they have to be to ovulate again?

Zero: You need to wait until the HCG reaches zero to try again. That is for several reasons. First you could be at danger from the ectopic still if is not totally gone. Also after a miscarriage or an ectopic it is possible to have a type of pregnancy cancer where the HCG never goes down to zero. So in either case it is very important to follow the HCG down to zero first, . ...Read more

1st level 23 -taken 12/13
2nd level 139.2-taken 12/17
3 rd level 612.4 -taken 12/20

Good numbers: Your numbers look good. The HCG level should double about every 3 days.

So far the levels you report seem to be rising more than just the minimum. Best wishes. ...Read more

My hCG level went from 524 to 616 im six weeks and three days could I have a normal pregnancy or is this a ectopic again?

I have flucuating hCG levels since i tested postive on 14dpo, hCG ars 35, 24, 48 and now 317 at 5 wks. Will my pregnancy be normal or ectopic?

Hcg levels: Rising hcg's are reassuring. However, i usually want to see a Progesterone level in patients at risk of ectopic, especially if plateau of HCG is noted. Most (but not all) ectopics have very low Progesterone levels. Often times even lower than an early miscarriage. See if your OB is comfortable with ordering and interpreting Progesterone levels. ...Read more
