Early pregnancy: An HCG level can indicate a very early pregnancy - as long as the level continues to rise (roughly doubling every 48-72 hours), then that is a good sign that the pregnancy is progressing normally. A Progesterone level > 25 is generally a good sign of a healthy pregnancy. ...Read more

Can my progesterone levels being low can it cause hCG levels to not double?

Luteal phase defect: Low Progesterone levels may be associated with a cause of recurrent miscarriage called a luteal phase defect and is treatable with first trimester progesterone. Extremely low progesterones and abnormal HCG levels may well be an ectopic or tubal pregnancy. Not everyone's HCG doubles every 2-3 days like we make them think. A 20% rise every 2-3 days may be normal and eventually you plateau. ...Read more

On monday my hCG levels were 8300 today it was 8100 they also told me my progesterone levels were low and gave me meds. Is my baby going to be ok?

Doesn't look good: The general rule of thumb for Beta-HCG levels is that they should double every 48 hours. A normal pregnancy would have gone from 8000 on Monday to 16000 on Wednesday. This is Thursday, and it is going down - not a good sign for a viable pregnancy (sorry). Be careful, because this could be a tubal pregnancy! You may need an ultrasound to look for the baby. If you have pain, go in! Maybe miscarriage ...Read more

WHAT DID YOUR OB: Say if someone ordered those tests that same doc should be telling u if everything is ok or not, u should not need to ask that? Here, so far those numbers look normal, the beat is supposed to double every 3 days and a Progesterone over 10 is normal. ...Read more

Is it true your hCG levels start doubling at 6 wks, is it ok to take progesterone cream to bring up my levels for progesterone?

Do not take any: Medication without your doctor's approval. Hcg levels double every day or two in early pregnancy, but there are wide variations in normal pregnancies and you should not try to influence the levels. ...Read more

My beta HCG level was 30 at 12 days past ovulation. On day 14 DPO it was 83. They gynie put me on progesterone. Is my levels too low?

Progesterone: That was an appropriate increase in hcg. However, I don't give Progesterone based on hcg levels, I give it based on the Progesterone level. Some docs use Progesterone alot and of course its a waste of time to use it if the level was dropping. ...Read more

I am preg and my hcg levels were 3000/ progesterone 18 a couple days ago. Today went back and hcg was 8500 but prog was 17. Is it bad that went down?

I am preg and my hcg levels were 3000/ progesterone 18 a couple days ago. Today went back and hcg was 8500 but prog was 17. Is it bad that went down?

Minimal change: Most important is that your HCG level went up normally. There is very little difference between a 18 and a 17 for progesterone. For my patients, I usually give progesterone supplementation in the first trimester. If you've had a miscarriage in the past then I definitely recommend progesterone supplementation. ...Read more

Beta HCG level was 24 at 18 DPO & progesterone 3.5. I go for another HCG tomorrow. I took another HPT which was lighter than first test. Looking bad?

Beta HCG level was 24 at 18 DPO & progesterone 3.5. I go for another HCG tomorrow. I took another HPT which was lighter than first test. Looking bad?

Unfortunately yes: These numbers are very low to begin with, and your second HPT suggests the level dropped when it should be increasing rapidly. A miscarriage is likely. ...Read more
