Hcg Levels For Triplets
Wide variation: Hcg levels are higher with multiple fetuses, but there is too wide a variation in normal levels to give you an exact figure. See this site for more info. Http://americanpregnancy. Org/duringpregnancy/hcglevels. Html.
My hCG level 23 DPO was 346 72 hours before that at 20dpo was 119. Suspected implantation 10 DPO are these #s to low?
Probably okay: But you can't say for sure. You did not implant 10 dpi, humans implant 6-7 days pov.
I had a m/c and I'm wondering if my hCG levels have to drop to 0 before I will ovulate, we did an u/s to make sure the tissue had passed.
Not necessarily: Testing at very low levels of HCG is not that precise. Any level below 5 is essentially zero.
I had FET on 24-5 my hCG level on 9-6 was 2745.I started bleeding on 11-6 my hCG was 5400 on 17-6 my hCG came down to1200 can't see any sac on u/s?
I got u/s at 5 weeks 5 days. Hb was 99 hbm, 3.8mm crl, and gest sac was 5 weeks 6 days. Hcg levels are doubling. Any indications of a non viability?
So far so good: I usually like to see a heartbeat at six weeks or later. The fact that you saw it so early is a good sign, even though it's slightly slow. Over 100 BPM is best after six weeks. I'm sure you have another ultrasound scheduled? Hold tight! It looks good for how early you are.See 1 more doctor answer
My u/s showed I am 6 weeks 1 day but my blood test indicated I was 12-14 weeks. The u/s showed one baby so far, what could make the hCG level so high?
Ultrasound is right: Hcg levels don't mean much, the ultrasound is what is used for dating criteria.
Mar 17 hCG level was 17201. March 18 u/s showed hb & 6 weeks 5 days. March 20 hCG level only 23315. Is this low doubling rate a concern if prev m/c?
Defer to your Doctor: This does not in any way represent a healthy pregnancy. But, you failed to share with us what the doctor caring for you has reported or predicted or recommended. Given the gravity of the nature I would defer to the expert on the ground.
Zero: If you are woman and not pregnant, it is wha s testd n urinary pregnacty tests. Men or women with choriocarcinomas can have quite highlevels secretd by thei tumors, and hydatiform moles, teratomas and seminomas can have lower levels that need experts to interpert. I hope this helps.See 1 more doctor answer
Pregnancy: Its just a number, it has to increase on a daily basis at least some or double in value in 48 hrs. The ultraosund will tell you how advanced your pregnancy is. That is just a part of the pregnancy, . We must look at the whole picture, not just a lab.
Not a good guide: HCG results vary widely in normal pregnancy and are not a good indicator of the gestational age. See this site for more info in this topic. Http://www. Babymed. Com/hcg-level-in-early-pregnancy
Doesn't work that way: While it is true that multiple gestation will cause a higher level of bhcg hormone you can't really look at an isolated bhcg level and use it to determine the number of babies. The range of normal bhcg varies way to much to do that.
U should check it --: With your ob/gyn, as you probably need to be examined thoroughly.See 1 more doctor answer
A rising tide: A rising tide (HCG values) floats all boats (fetus).
NO!: This type of vacillating in the HCG levels is not normal and indicates an abnormal pregnancy - very worrisome for an ectopic pregnancy. Early in pregnancy the HCG level is expected to approx. Double every 48 hours, but a minimum rise of 66% is considered within the normal increase. You need to see a doctor, b/c an ectopic pregnancy can be very dangerous.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Smoking can affect all aspects of infertility. It causes an earlier menopause, it can decrease the number and quality of eggs, and likely increases genetic abnormalities in eggs. All of this affect the pregnancy itself. Smoking also has effects of the uterus and can decrease the ability of the pregnancy to implant. So it is one of the most important things to try to stop if trying for pregnancy.See 1 more doctor answer
