Spotting for 2 wks straight, confirmed am pregnant possible twins C-section 7 mths ago hCG increasing normally. What are causes for bleeding? M/c?

Spotting for 2 wks straight, confirmed am pregnant possible twins C-section 7 mths ago hCG increasing normally. What are causes for bleeding? M/c?

Spotting: Spotting is relatively common in early pregnancy and isn't always a sign of miscarriage. The cervix is often friable during pregnancy, so hold off on intercourse for a week or so and see if that makes a difference. Implantation site bleeding is relatively common too. If you smoke, stop as smoking is highly associated with this type of bleeding more likely to cause a miscarriage. ...Read more

Hcg only increasing 15% every 2 days over 1-2 weeks. Ectopic ruled out, could my pregnancy still be viable? Scan booked but I’d like to be prepared

Theoretically...: Depends on how far you are through. There is a peak in HCG mid to late 1st trimester and then levels off a bit. So if in that time period a slower rise could still be normal. However unfortunately a slower rise like this can signal an issue like nonviable pregnancy and as you say doing the followup scan and being prepared for this possibility is the right thing to do. All the best ...Read more

Dr if my b hcg in increasing in 36 hours does it means I'm having molar pregnancy? I'm 5 weeks 2 days and result is 3222. Seems normal but 36 hours!!

Dr if my b hcg in increasing in 36 hours does it means I'm having molar pregnancy? I'm 5 weeks 2 days and result is 3222. Seems normal but 36 hours!!

Unlikely: Molar pregnancies are rare and they typically present with ultrasound findings and a higher hcg level.
Is there any particular reason why you are concerned about a molar pregnancy? usually a typical hcg level increases by 50% or *more* every 48 hours.. ...Read more

Almost 4 weeks from conception. I spotted mon. My dr. Checked on thur bby is finally in uterus, hCG is increasing. So y am I still lightly spotting?

Implantation bleed: Many women spot during the first part of their pregnancy. Often, the cause is from the placenta implanting into the uterus, which needs to occur in order for it to support the baby to full term. Other causes include infection or intercourse. It can still be worrisome, and so you should follow closely with your doctor. If you have cramping or an increase in bleeding, check in sooner. ...Read more

I've had very light bleeding within the past 3 days & I'm 5wks preg. My hCG levels are increasing and some blood was found in the ultrasound. Should I worry about bleeding not accompanied my cramps?

I've had very light bleeding within the past 3 days & I'm 5wks preg. My hCG levels are increasing and some blood was found in the ultrasound. Should I worry about bleeding not accompanied my cramps?

Close watching: It is probably ok, and there really is nothing that can be done to prevent a miscarriage if it is about to happen. But with increasing HCG levels, and only very light spotting, I would think this more placental implantation. ...Read more

I am 4 weeks and 2 days pregnant and no risk factors for miscarriage. What are the chances I will miscarry? My hCG levels have been increasing normally

What are the differences in hCG drops, shots, and pills in regards to increasing fertility?

What are the differences in hCG drops, shots, and pills in regards to increasing fertility?

Only shots work. ..: Hcg (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a protein and only works in shot form - HCG drops and pills are *bogus* products sold to women on the "hcg diet". Hcg is used as part of fertility treatments, most often as a 'trigger shot' to tell your ovaries when to ovulate when taking medicines to increase egg production, or during in vitro fertilization (ivf) as a trigger or to help follicle development. ...Read more

My HCG levels dropped and now increasing after Methotrexate shot. 3152 mIU/ml before injection. 48hrs after shot it was 3052. 72hrs after 3108. Nopain?

My HCG levels dropped and now increasing after Methotrexate shot. 3152 mIU/ml before injection. 48hrs after shot it was 3052. 72hrs after 3108. Nopain?

Rising HCG: I would wait a few more days as the methotrexate may take a week before you see a descent drop in level. If no drop by then, I would start by checking an US to look for retained molar tissue. ...Read more

My hCG levels have been slowly increasing over a week. On wed they were 18 Friday 31.9 Monday 73 and wed 114. I do believe I am 3-4 weeks. Is this normal? My Ob is saying that this will be a bad pregnancy.

No: The levels are expected to rise faster in a normal pregnancy at least doubling every 3 days. This is definitely worrisome. Of course there is always the possibility of lab error and, unless you are having other symptoms, I'd advise just watching it a little while longer. Best wishes. ...Read more

My HCG levels have been slowly increasing. 18, 25, 37. Prescribed progesterone suppositories 1x per day. Is cramping normal? What's is the prognosis?

My HCG levels have been slowly increasing. 18, 25, 37. Prescribed progesterone suppositories 1x per day. Is cramping normal? What's is the prognosis?

To early to say: I need more information. How often did your doctor do the quantitative Beta HCG. Those numbers could be ok if they were done daily. Most of the time we will do them every 2-3 days. The HCG level is suppose to double every 2-3 days. If you were doing HCG levels every 3 days and your progesterone is low, the prognosis is guarded. Possible problems could be a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. ...Read more

Gestation sac 12mm x 5mm x 12mm is this likely a blighted ovum no yolk sac present docters estimate 7 weeks by lmp my dates 5 weeks 4 days hcg increas?

Must know HCG level: The correlation between the sonographic findings of a 12 mm mean gestational sac is much better with your blood betaHCG levels than with your estimated gestational age of 7 wks by LMP. If your betaHCG is rising appropriately and you are feeling fine, another well timed sonogram may provide you and your doctor some reassurance or a better sense of direction. ...Read more

Is 73 a good beta hcg?

Hormone: It is difficult to say if a level of HCG is good, based on one level. Hcg levels tend to increase exponentially in the first trimester of pregnancy. A HCG of 73 could be a normal very early pregnancy at 4+ weeks. Many times we will follow HCG levels over time. ...Read more

Do the hCG drop work and how?

Do the hCG drop work and how?

No: The HCG diet has a person eating 500 calories a day for more than a month. That's just one big slice of pizza a day. A 4-month old baby eats 500 calories a day. Anybody on 500 calories a day is on a starvation diet and will lose weight. It doesn't sound safe. Extremely low calorie diets don't work because the weight comes back when one starts eating again. Long-term lifestyle changes are needed. ...Read more

Can't recommend: These rapid weight loss drops are being promoted; I have not heard any physician say they are evidence-based, and the little I've read about their claims makes little sense.

Can taking extra hCG be bad for you?

Can taking extra hCG be bad for you?

Probably: It depends on if you are a man or woman and the dose. There is probably a dose-related effect for risk of clots or overstimulation of ovaries. Women get elevation of estrogen (which causes its own problems) and men get elevation of testosterone (which can fuel prostate issues). Always take the recommended dose or consult with a professional. ...Read more
