Sorry but not likely: With no fetal cardiac activity at 7 weeks, the likelihood of a normal pregnancy is very, very low. The hCG does not appear to have risen at an appropriate rate which indicates a problem with the pregnancy. ...Read more

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (Definition)

Pcos is a metabolic disorder affecting 8-10% of women that may cause irregular periods, acne or increased hair growth, infertility or subfertility, and increases the risk of diabetes. To diagnose pcos, we need 2 out of 3 of: 1. Irregular or no periods 2. Acne, hair growth and/or blood tests showing too much male-type hormones (androgens) 3. Ultrasound showing large ovaries ...Read more

No period- pregnant: Your are pregnant and no need for added Progesterone as your doc has stated. Enjoy your pregnancy and follow all instructions : no smoking; no alcohol; get a flu shot etc. After you complete breast feeding you should know if your period returns or need a simple medication. ...Read more

I had a followup TV ultrasound for lack of period for 5mths, now I have parovarian cyst on my right ovary. Could that be related to my PCOS? Hcg neg

I had a followup TV ultrasound for lack of period for 5mths, now I have parovarian cyst on my right ovary. Could that be related to my PCOS? Hcg neg

Not likely: Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a bit of a misnomer, one needn't have a 'cyst' to have the diagnosis. Having said that, a lot of women have paraovarian cysts without PCOS, as well. PCOS is more of an endocrine disorder, than a problem with cysts. Women with PCOS often don't' have a period, and can have excess testosterone, excess estrogen and increased risk for diabetes. ...Read more

Amenorrhea: If hCG is not present she is not pregnant. PCOS is very serious and is the likely cause of her not having her periods. She needs to be treated. Staying physically fit and trim helps PCOS, perhaps you can share fitness activities ...Read more

Hcg on 11/04 277 hCG on 11/06 658 unknown weeks due to pcos. Viability scan on 11/19. Lmp 09/20 but i prob conceived on 10/19. Does this make sense?

Yes late ov but pg!: The charts detailing your gestational age include 2 weeks prior to your ovulation. The charts are set as if everyone ovulated on day 14. If you set your ovulation day as day 14 your corrected LMP would be 10/6/13. The HCG levels on 11/4 and 11/6 are appropriate with this date. On 11/19 you will be 6 weeks 2 days which is the earliest to do a viability scan. Congratulations! ...Read more

Prior had 2 '3dfet' -(twins live births) My hcg=164 (12dpfet). Am now preg. Hcg 76 (13dfet). Am I a slow starter? Is it due to having PCOS?

Schedule follow up: It is tough to decipher your question. I think you are saying you are 13 days post frozen embryo transfer and that your BHCG is 76. I think you are concerned because this is slightly lower than your last pregnancy when a 12-day post transfer level was 164. If that is correct then one can not compare the results from one pregnancy to another and draw any specific conclusions. ...Read more

Yes: Some home pregnancy tests can be positive as soon as 5 days, however, it may take longer. I recommend repeating test in one week. If still negative, then you are not pregnant, but can keep trying. ...Read more

Can PCOS mess with pregnancy result? Example, pregnant but negative result because HCG takes longer to build up? Or never enough HCG? Or other reason?

No: PCOS can certainly impact one's ability to get pregnant. POCS inhibits ovulation. If pregnant though it will not impact the BHCG levels or the accuracy of a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Can pcos cause low levels of hcg? Having regular cycles for years once I started taking metformin. Tracking ovulation with opk's.

Confused: HCG is a hormone that is only present during pregnancy. Levels will normally be very low in non pregnant woman regardless of whether they have PCOS or not. OPK kits look at LH levels, not HCG. ...Read more

I have pcos and had an hCG trigger 18 days ago, and am 16 DPO with many pregnancy symptoms, but negative home tests. Could i still be pregnant?

Possible: The home pregnancy test are not always accurate. You could be pregnant with a very low level of HCG (hormone of pregnancy) and this will not be detected by a home pregnancy test. You can ask your obgyn or fertility specialist to order a blood work for HCG level as well as progesterone, this will tell you more precisely if you are pregnant and/or whether you truly ovulated. ...Read more

Lost 2 pregnancies due to low hcg. Were lost at 4 1/2 and 5 1/2 weeks. What is the cause? Pcos w/ normal cycles & ovulation. Takes metformin, diagnosis in er

Lost 2 pregnancies due to low hcg. Were lost at 4 1/2 and 5 1/2 weeks. What is the cause? Pcos w/ normal cycles & ovulation. Takes metformin, diagnosis in er

Recurrent miscarriag: The low HCG results are not the cause of the lost pregnancies, but rather an indicator that the pregnancies were nonviable. You have to look for the reason why a pregancy could not grow normally. One specific factor to look for with recurrent miscarriage is a diagnosis of lupus (with the lupus anticoagulant); other causes are congenital abnormalities of the uterus, fibroid tumors, and chromosomal. ...Read more

I have pcos last period over 6mos took a blood hCG test 22 days after sex how accurate?

Accurate: If you have not had a period for 6 months and you have pcos, then the problem is that you are not ovulating. A test at 22 days after intercourse should accurately reflect if you are pregnant or not. If the test is negative, then talk with your doctor about ways to induce ovulation as well as metformin. ...Read more

Lmp 09/20 pcos empty u/s pain on left abdominal hCG 11/04 and 11/06 viability scan on 11/19. Is the ab pain indicator of ectopic?

Lmp 09/20 pcos empty u/s pain on left abdominal hCG 11/04 and 11/06 viability scan on 11/19. Is the ab pain indicator of ectopic?

Rarely: Sometimes pain is a presentation of ectopic pregnancy, but most common presentation of ectopic pregnancy is pain with bleeding. If you have high risk for ectopic, you would want a scan possibly before 11/19? You can determine pregnancy is intrauterine at around HCG of 2000. Do you know the results of your HCG from today? ...Read more

In pcos pregnancy is it necessary to have ultrasound at 5 weeks pregnancy? I got blood hCG of 577.3, I am worried of complications.

Too early.: Ultrasound will often not be able to see a pregnancy at 5 weeks. Assuming no worrisome symptoms or signs, you should wait until a routine dating ultrasound at 8 to 12 weeks. Congratulations on your pregnancy. ...Read more

277 hCG on 11/04 and numbers doubled on 11/06. Pcos and blighted ovum on 08/16. Don't know my progesterone level. Due to conditions and loss, should i?

The doc should: Draw a Progesterone level with the beta because a high one is reassuring a low one under 5 is not, 5-10 is worrisome, over 10 is normal, over 20 is favorable and repeat the beta in 3 days should double every 3 days if u are preg now the blighted ovum on 8/16 has nothing to do with this pregnancy. ...Read more

I had a +ve pregnant test on 8 feb had an ultrasound on 15feb. N they cudnt c anything. Now I have started bleeding. Lmp 4 jan. I have pcos so given hCG shot?

Unclear: I'm so sorry you're going through this. Bleeding doesn't always mean miscarriage but obviously that's a possibility. Based on that LMP should be about 6w 3d. It's possible they didn't see sac 3 days ago, but by today should be something seen on ultrasound maybe ask your doctor for a repeat ultrasound? I hope for the best for you. ...Read more

41, tubal ligation in 2010, history of pcos. Went in for semi-annual visit. Doctor ordered blood tests.  Hcg comes back 444.  What's going on?

You are pregnant: Except for certain unusual tumors, a positive beta means you are pregnant. This can happen because one of your tubes is actually open or more likely the sperm got in, fertilized an egg and got stuck in your fallopian tube. This is called an ectopic pregnancy and can be life threatening. Please follow up closely with your gyn. ...Read more

My LMP was on dec 20. I have irregular periods and pcos. I did my pregnant test on jan 19 and came back as pos. But in us on 2/13 no sac. Hcg on 2/7 is 2984.

My LMP was on dec 20. I have irregular periods and pcos. I did my pregnant test on jan 19 and came back as pos. But in us on 2/13 no sac. Hcg on 2/7 is 2984.

Early pregnancy: It's too soon to tell if things are going well or not. With a + test on jan 19, the ultrasound may have been done as early as the 5th gestational week. Sometimes the sac isn't seen that early. Repeat hcgs every 48 hours x 3 and repeat ultrasound in 1-2 weeks should solve the question. Hcg should rise by about 66% every 48 hours in a healthy pregnancy. Good luck! ...Read more

I have pcos I can't go by miss period to take a hCG test. Took blood test 22 days after unprotected sex how accurate is this test?

Hard to tell: Since you don't know when you ovulate if you ovulate at all, it's hard for me to tell how accurate your blood test is. At least it is accurate at that time. If you're in doubt over potential pregnancy, repeat it in 3 -4 weeks. ...Read more
