My hCG level is 400 and they can't see anything on the ultrasound, is this normal?  I'm not sure how far along i am.

Talk to your doctor!: Hcg - the hormone of pregnancy - will double every two to three days during the first part of the pregnancy. By the time the HCG is over 1500, the pregnancy can usually be seen on ultrasound. A low HCG level can mean a woman is having a miscarriage, but it might also mean a tubal or ectopic pregnancy, which can be dangerous to you. Please talk to your doctor and get your questions cleared up! ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more

Non viable pregnancy: In a viable pregnancy hcg concentrations typically double every 48 hours. If this is not the case, and if moreover hog concentrations start to drop again, then there is concern for an impending miscarriage. If more than one sac is seen in early pregnancy on ultrasound this can indicate that there is a twin pregnancy. ...Read more

My hCG levels went from 2100 to 2223 in 48 hrs but ultrasound was fine baby measuring 7 weeks 3 days and hb 148. Could something still be wrong?

My hCG levels went from 2100 to 2223 in 48 hrs but ultrasound was fine baby measuring 7 weeks 3 days and hb 148. Could something still be wrong?

Be positive: The actual quantitative HcG level is non specific and is not useful in measuring dates, etc. In other words, the range for gestational age is very broad regarding hcg, so x may mean age 2weeks to 8weeks, and y is 4weeks to 12 weeks, etc. The US and getting your routine exams by the GYN is most useful for having a healthy pregnancy. God bless, best wishes. ...Read more

Hcg levels at 2600. Ultrasound Shows nothing. Why?!

Hcg levels: Sometimes nothing is present until 3000plus. When a pregnancy shows up on Ultrasound varies. I tend to repeat levels to see if rising appropriately (at least 15-20%) in 3 days is ok and most of my early pregnancies I do a progesterone level. Most ectopic or non viable pregnancies will quickly drop progesterone below 2. See if your doc will order another hcg and progesterone or repeat US 1 wk. ...Read more

Hcg levels went from 439 to 510 no sigh of baby on ultrasound. Slow rising levels. Don't know how far along i am. What are the possibilities?

Defer to OB: I am always sympathetic to the anxiety these situations cause. What does the doctor who is taking care of you, ordering these tests and the ultrasound telling you? It surely sounds like the pregnancy is not viable. ...Read more

My last period was 5/18 my hCG level was 386.0 today my levels were 92000 but my ultrasound only showed a sac. Is this normal?

My last period was 5/18 my hCG level was 386.0 today my levels were 92000 but my ultrasound only showed a sac. Is this normal?

Probably not: If you had and HCG level of 386 taken 7 weeks ago, i would expect a fetal pole and a heart beat. You could have lost that pregnancy and gotten pregnant again but would have noticed bleeding and then i wouldn't expect your HCG level to be so high. You should be following up with your physician soon. ...Read more
