Hcg Levels And Ultrasound Findings
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.

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.

Non viable pregnancy: In a viable pregnancy hcg concentrations typically double every 48 hours.

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

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
