I went for a beta hCG when I was 4 weeks 4 days and my level was 128. Is that low is it still possible to have a normal pregnancy?

I went for a beta hCG when I was 4 weeks 4 days and my level was 128. Is that low is it still possible to have a normal pregnancy?

HCG: That seems very low for a normal pregnancy, but you can't tell much from one measurement. Normally you would get two more tests, each 2-3 days apart to determine whether your pregnancy is ok. The HCG level should about double every 2 days. If it doesn't, it is a miscarriage. There would be nothing you could do to change this or improve it unfortunately. ...Read more

Progesterone and hCG levels early pregnancy after ivf?

Ok: Most ivf clinics only measure HCG levels approximately 9 days after a day 5 embryo transfer. However, some clinics feel that the combination of HCG levels and Progesterone levels have a more predictive value of a good pregnancy than HCG levels alone. Personally, we only measure hcg. Hope this helps and good luck. ...Read more

Some docs say hCG levels have wide variations, but some say that the rise is very consistent in early pregnancy and that it always doubles. Explain...

Both are right: The absolute number an pregnant individual has as a result at one point in time has a broad range. You cannot predict the number of weeks of pregnancy solely based on the absolute number. However if you take one persons value and follow it over time, it should double every two days. ...Read more

Is free beta HCG different from HCG they measure in early pregnancy? If HCG was elevated at 5w5d, does this mean my HCG will be high at quad screen?

Is free beta HCG different from HCG they measure in early pregnancy? If HCG was elevated at 5w5d, does this mean my HCG will be high at quad screen?

HCG: The HCG is the same test. However, the hcg at the beginning of pregnancy is very variable. When you have the test doen in the second trimester, it is looking for markers for Down's Syndrome and risk rates. So, it does not necessarily mean your quad screen will be elevated again. ...Read more

Wat dosage of cytotec (misoprostol) to give to terminate 4week 5 days pregnancy if beta hCG levels going low?

May not need: If beta HCG is dropping you likely are already having a miscarriage. Most physicians aren't recommending using Cytotec (misoprostol) alone to terminate a pregnancy. Most mds will provide Mifepristone combined with cytotec (misoprostol). I realize that some women will obtain Cytotec (misoprostol) in mexico or on-line and use at home without a doctor. This isn't safe. See a md if you need assistance with terminating a pregnancy. ...Read more

Last sex 5.05. On 8.06 I took blood test hCG beta hormon level 7, 6. After seven days I made home pregnancy test it was negative. I'm I pregnant?

Last sex 5.05. On 8.06 I took blood test hCG beta hormon level 7, 6. After seven days I made home pregnancy test it was negative. I'm I pregnant?

Don't think so.: The beta HCG level of 7 is very low- if a urine pregnancy test was negative 7 days later then it sounds like your hormone levels declined after the 8.06 test -instead of increasing, as they should have with a normally progressing pregnancy. There is a small chance of getting a false negative home pregnancy test and you could check it again or get another beta check to be sure. But most likely not. ...Read more

I am pregnant. I went to doctor and they looked through ultra sound couldn't see anything. Said early pregnancy hCG level is 28. Is baby ok?

You tell us: Only you know when you could have gotten pregnant. The answer to this question is only going to be known with dates and more data. What did your physician tell you? Why did you not share that VITAL piece of information in your question? If you are more than six weeks then no baby on ultrasound means the pregnancy is not viable. ...Read more

Yes!: It's still possible that your pregnancy is ok. Now it will be important to check the hcg doubling time. Your hcg should double in about 3 days at this stage of your pregnancy, so I'm sure your doctor has ordered a follow up test to find out. Keep a positive attitude, get lots of rest, and stay healthy. And remember, if the pregnancy doesn't make it, it was nothing you or your hubby did wrong! ...Read more

Is hcg level 46 considered low in early pregnancy? Knowing that my period is irregular (30-39) and last period was on 17 april. Which week of pregnancy

Do a follow up hCG: A level of 46 indicates very early pregnancy, most likely your OB will advise some serial levels every 48 hours or so for perhaps the next 2 or 3, and this should hopefully help determine how the pregnancy is doing. If the level rise looks appropriate, your OB will then determine when it may be optimum to do a pelvic ultrasound to determine the well being of the pregnancy. Best Wishes ...Read more
