Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

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

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

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 the doctor who is ordering the tests. ...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

Had a ultrasound for my first prenatal appointment but they just found a sac. They said it may be to early. Hcg levels were 35k then 34k. Is this bad?

Had a ultrasound for my first prenatal appointment but they just found a sac. They said it may be to early. Hcg levels were 35k then 34k. Is this bad?

Prognosis seems poor: If the finding of "just a sac" was from a tranvaginal sonogram performed by a skilled certified sonographer and the blood betaHCG levels have indeed decreased, there is a high probability that your pregnancy will be lost. ...Read more

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

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

On oct 22 my hcg level was 5000 and I been getting positive test. On today I went for an ultrasound and they couldn't find anything. Should I be worried?

5000: It's tricky to give good answer without more information but basically you should see an intrauterine pregnancy at hCG above 2000. You would NOT however see fetal pole or heartbeats at 5000. Work closely with your doctor, hope this helps. ...Read more

How far along would I approx be if my hcg levels were 658? and at this level is it too early to see a sac or baby on ultrasound

How far along would I approx be if my hcg levels were 658? and at this level is it too early to see a sac or baby on ultrasound

Very very early: After fertilization, the embryo usually takes about 8 to 10 days to implant inside your uterus at which time HCG production becomes detectable in your blood and urine. From that point on, if pregnancy is normal, HCG levels will rise from about 10to 25mIU/ml and double every 48 to 50 hours. 658 would correspond to day 10 +/- 2d post fertilization. Gestational sac is usually seen at levels above 1000 ...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 4 week ultrasound saw a sack and baby. My Hcg levels moved upwards as they should. At 8 5/7, they saw a sack but no baby. Is it possible to miss it?

Yes: It is difficult to see a "baby" by ultrasound at 4 weeks gestation as just a gestational sac would be present. At 8 weeks the fetus should be visible within the uterus. ...Read more

HCG high for 5 weeks 3 days. What does this indicate? HCG level 22, 000. Ultrasound showed gestational and yolk sac.

Likely normal: HCG levels vary widely in normal pregnancies and 22000 after 5 weeks is likely in the normal range. See this site for more info.

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
