Hcg Doubling Every 3 Days
Hcg doubling every 6 days, no pain or bleeding, dr thinks tubular, 5 weeks now, wouldn't i be in pain or have other noticable symptoms?
Ectopic: Ectopic pregnancies do not always cause pain or external bleeding. You can feel just fine until it suddenly ruptures causing life threatening bleeding. ...Read more
My hCG level day 28 was 37 three days later 50 three days after that 90. I'm worried these levels are too low for a viable pregnancy and not doubling?
Unclear: You are really early, I would recommend repeating and as long as you have no symptoms of miscarriage continue to be optimistic for now. ...Read more
1st hcg ~14 dpo (15 days after +opk), 37. ~16 dpo, 58. ~18 dpo, 76. The #s are rising but not doubling in 72 hrs. Doubling every 92. Viable pregnancy?
Increase of HCG: I am satisfied if the HCG is increasing at least close to 50% every 48 hrs. I also look at the progesterone level to make sure it is elevated enough. 100% increase is not the norm although I have seen that as well. I find your levels within normal range. What is the concern for drawing the labs. Is this an IVF pregnancy? ...Read more
I recently had an ultrasound that showed a markedly thickened and irregular stripe, 23mm.my hcg levels are more than doubling every two days,?
See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, rapidly doubling HCG levels mean pregnancy or tumor of the chorionic tissue. You need to discuss it the doctor who is ordering the tests. ...Read more
My HCG levels are slowly rising but not doubling every 2 days. If I don't miscarry, will my baby have health issues due to chromosome problems?
Dr pls advise me of b hcg doubling in every 36 hours indicate molar pregnancy? I'm 5 w 2 days my level is 3222 now
Not necessarily: An HCG that doubles in 36 hours does not necessarily mean a molar pregnancy. I would recommend a repeat level in 48-72 hours and an ultrasound in one week to be sure what is going on. The good news is that the HCG is rising so the pregnancy is living and growing. Your dates could be off slightly, it could be a multiple gestation, or there could be a lab error. One lab value seldom means anything. ...Read more
5 weeks pregn. Hcg only 434 but been doubling every 2 days. Progesterone 17.1. Concerned? Lab repeat and us tomorrow but dr not optimistic. Concur? Hope?
My beta hcg was 60 at 12dpo and 150 at 15dpo so doubling every 54 hours, is this within the normal range or should it be doubling every 48 hours?
Wide variation: There is a wide range of normal HCG levels in normal pregnancies. What you described is in the normal range. ...Read more

Would recommend u/s: Although probably nothing to worry about I would still recommend an early ultrasound ...Read more
My HCG levels were doubling every 48 hours; but during this week (week 5) the levels only increased 1point in 48 hours! What can this mean?
Get an ultrasound.: If you go to an ER and get an ultrasound it will answer your question. ...Read more
Good day, my HCG level are not doubling every 48 hrs, as per example I was at 2645 and 92 hrs latter I was at 7100. My doc is concern, should be I?
Not yet: On many occasions, pregnancies proceed to be just fine even without the typical doubling. Hopefully, your OB will request an ultrasound, get a baseline reading, and then do a follow up scan as appropriate. Best Wishes ...Read more
My hCG levels are not doubling every 48 doc said definite miss carriage in the sights is this true?
Threatened, yes: Depends on what they are doing--if close to 2x/2d, or if doubling every 3 days, probably ok. If slow upward climb, or plateau, or drifting down, then unfortunately, yes, miscarriage likely. Try not to be too disappointed if happens--when early, usually indicator of misaligned chromosomes / nonviable pregnancy so body stops process early so can try again--no maternal action/inaction to blame. ...Read more
Had hCG level tested 18 DPO was 1300 21 DPO was 3000 doctor said she expected to see it double every 72 hrs cos its was over 1300 but its doubling every 50 hrs can it indicate multiples is it high?
Possibly: Unfortunately, you will need further HCG level testing and an ultrasound later to determine a multiple gestation as it is too early at this time to predict. ...Read more
What causes late rising HCG levels? I mean I was 6 weeks pregnant but hCG was 148 then it still going doubling normally every 48 hours.but only sac
Early: An HCG of 148 is very early. As long as it is rising like you describe, it's a good sign. You don't expect to see a sac until the HCG reaches 1500 to 2000, and you won't see an embryo for at least another 1-2 weeks, and then just a small blip on the screen. If you are 6 weeks, though, you would expect to see something. Perhaps you are not as far along as you think. ...Read more
My hCG level are doubling every 28 hours. Level is 1708.5 now and a week ago was 48. Progesterone 19.6.this pregnancy look Normal? Twins?
When your beta hcg is over 2000, you can start to identify structures in the uterus to suggest that you have an intra-uterine pregnancy (vs ectopic).
An ultrasound later on in your pregnancy can help delineate if you have a singleton or twin pregnancy. ...Read more
Hcg 11, 563, 5 days later 22, 516. True that doubling times increase with higher numbers? Could this be ok? Spoke w/nurse give me #'s only :-(
Hcg not doubling. 13dpo was 94 and went to 141 in 48 hours then 289 then 481 then 770 and showed small sac on u/s. 7 days later went to 2409, viable?
HCG doubling: The rule of thumb of doubling per 48 hours is a LOOSE estimate. At least 66% increase per 48 hours is still a good sign. And sometimes it can be a "staggered" rise, with a rise of less than 66% followed by a rapid rise. Overall 66% rise per 48 hours averaged over the testing time would be reassuring for viability. Are you saying it took 7 days to go from 770 to 2409? ...Read more
I got u/s at 5 weeks 5 days. Hb was 99 hbm, 3.8mm crl, and gest sac was 5 weeks 6 days. Hcg levels are doubling. Any indications of a non viability?
So far so good: I usually like to see a heartbeat at six weeks or later. The fact that you saw it so early is a good sign, even though it's slightly slow. Over 100 BPM is best after six weeks. I'm sure you have another ultrasound scheduled? Hold tight! It looks good for how early you are. ...Read more
I have hCG 4794 after 2 days I made it again and the hCG was 8657 — which give 2, 34 days of doubling time. It is 5 or 6 week, is it normal?

I'm approx 6 weeks pregnant. One week ago hCG was 18500, today it is 41300, progesterone 90. I'm afraid about hcg, its not doubling each 3 days. Is it ok?
Likely 'yes': Those levels are still reasonable. Where did you hear that HCG doubles every 3 days? That's a very rough guideline only! Consider as well if you are worried that ultrasound at 6 weeks is very sensitive and reliable. ...Read more
I am 6 weeks pregnant,hcg was 910,5 days ago and today was only 1,300. So it’s not doubling. I have been experiencing cramping,scan ruled out ectopic ?
Repeat beta hCG: You need to repeat the beta hCG in a few days to see if the value continues to rise or not. That value will allow your OB MD to determine the status of this pregnancy's progress. ...Read more

Is HCG not doubling in 5 days a sign of a miscarriage? 5-6 weeks pregnant. Hcg-910/5 days later hcg-1,300
5 weeks pregnant. Spotting 7 days. Hcg doubling and progesterone normal. Is the spotting still a cause for concern or breakthrough bleeding?
After 12 to 14 weeks: The HCG will typically double every two days during the first trimester (about 13 weeks). The HCG level will usually peak at about 200, 000 then begin a gradual decline during the midtrimester to a level of 50, 000 to 100, 000. ...Read more
