The absence of menstrual periods for 12 months. During menopause, the ovaries stop producing estrogen and progesterone. After the complete transition into menopause, women can no longer get pregnant.

Estradiolo 32, 9 pg/ml fsh 14, 1iu/l testosterone < 0, 1 ng/ml beta hCG <2 mu/ml. Are these values normal for menopause?
Not necessarily.: It depends on your age and the situation. Your estrogen is low. Your fsh is not at high as I would expect in full menopause. You are not pregnant, and your testosterone is very low. The units reported vary, and I am at home. This could represent your pituitary not trying hard enough to stimulate your ovaries, or just early in your cycle. If your are 46, you may be perimenopausal. ...Read more
I am 45 with 3 failed ivfs, 5 yrs ago. Benign ovar. Cyst removed then. Last period jul 10. Hcg 464 (20 dpo) & 843 (22.5 dpo) mild cramp, no bleed, ache 1 side. Ectopic, cancer, menopause?
Is DPO days post ovulation? If so, your HCG roughly doubled in 48 hours...That is a good textbook rise! A mild cramp is common, and no bleeding is always good.
Seems to me you are pregnant! No indication of ectopic, no reason to think cancer (hcg producing cancers are typically seen in much younger women ie teens and 20's) and menopause doesn't give you rising hcg.
So for now, congrats and luck! ...Read more
Hcg in urine: Hcg, human chorionic gonadotropin, is found in blood of men and women. It is very elevated in pregnancy and some forms of cancer. Urine pregnancy tests are designed to detect the presence of HCG in the urine of pregnant women. It is found in all pregnant women. However, it has to reach a threshold to be detectable and if urine is checked too early in pregnancy, the test may be negative. ...Read more
HCG levels: An HCG value of >5 is usually a sign of pregnancy. Typically, the value will double every 24-48 hours. A gestational sac can be seen on us when it reaches 1-2000 units. It is not unusual for values as measured to be all over the MAP for weeks, but if it doesn't rise above 1 unit for 10 weeks, you are not pregnant. You should contact your gyn and seek an explanation. ...Read more

Some women just do not produce dectatable hCG even after weeks later. They keep getting false neg test when they r in fact preg. Why is that?
Not true at all: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more
Hormone: Hcg is the hormone of pregnancy and made by the placenta. It is most commonly seen in pregnant women. In women with retained placenta they can still have HCG levels. Hcg levels can also be detected in certain tumors, like liver tumors, certain ovarian tumors and others, and if the person is taking HCG shots. ...Read more
Yes you can: Hcg protocol, if followed properly, will help you lose weight and should not be affected by your hysterectomy.

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 also. It still could be within the first month though. ...Read more
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.

If hCG is given to women for fertility then how can it be given to men for hypothalamic patuitary problems? And if it is given to men what does it do for them if they have hypothalamic patuitary problems?
HCG: Hcg is usally given to either men and women as a surrogate/substitute for luteinizing hormone (lh.) the HCG and lh molecular structures are nearly identical. In females lh triggers ovulations (among other things,) likewise in males lh stimulates testicular leydig cells to produce testosterone (among other things.). ...Read more

Beta hCG: HCG is produced in small amounts by the pituitary and other organs, including the testis, liver, colon, and in much larger amounts by placental trophoblast and by malignancies such as hydatidiform mole, choriocarcinoma, and germ cell tumors. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I've read about some women not producing hCG while pregnant. How much truth is there to this stealth/cryptic pregnancy phenomenon?
Some women do not produce hCG enough to be detectable even when they're preggo. Even blood test can't detect till the weeks later. What r the reasons?
Some people just: Test too early for pregnancy. But, any normal pregnancy has a detectable (by blood) HCG level very soon after implantation. ...Read more
Hi I'm curious as to how can hpts b trusted if some women get negs when they infact r pregnant. They have to do beta hcg or don't find out till after?
No worries: Pregnant women do not get negative pregnancy tests at 3 or more weeks after sex. If possibly pregnant, and very worried about tests, a woman can buy 2 different brands of pregnancy tests, and do both tests after reading the instructions carefully. If one or both of the tests are positive 3 weeks after sex, then she is pregnant (or was pregnant and her pregnancy failed within the past few days). ...Read more
Normal: Most labs use a cutoff of 5. Anything below the cutoff is negative. ...Read more
It is not normal: If you are not pregnant, there should be no HCG in the blood. Certain tumors of the ovary, lung, stomach and liver can secrete hcg. ...Read more
