Hcg Levels In Multiple Gestation Pregnancies
I had two grade A blastocysts transferred on day 5. My hCG levels are: 9dpt 498, 13dpt 2994, 16dpt 9400 Does this suggest multiple gestation?
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Dx with pcos. Have had a normal period for over a year now, but am now two months late. Experiencing multiple pregnancy symptoms but got negative test result. Is it possible my hCG levels are too low to read bc of pcos?
Possible: It is always possible that you may be pregnant when you miss a period. Because you have pcos, it's hard to know if you are pregnant or simply skipping periods. Symptoms of pcos can mimic symptoms of pregnancy as well. If the tests have been negative it is unlikely that you're pregnant. Blood pregnancy tests are more sensitive than urine and can help alleviate your concerns. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

HCG: Twins are always possible. The HCG number may be inaccurate in terms of dating. The best way to be sure, or to diagnose twinning is to have an ultrasound. ...Read more

I have had an ultrasound dating my pregnancy 4w5d with just gestational sac. Lmp says 7. Hcg levels are over 4000. What is likely in this pregnancy?
Hcg levels 19, 000 at 5 weeks 5 days and an ultrasound showed gestational and yolk sac. At 6 weeks 1day, hCG was 38, 000. Sound like a viable pregnancy?
So far: 1st ultrasound was done too early, an ultrasound done in 3-7 more days should show a fetus with a normal rate htbeat. ...Read more
With postpartum gestational trophoblastic disease would hCG levels be high enough to make a home pregnancy test show a positive result?

My wife's LMP is 11-03-17. Yesterday BHCG value is 654. she is 4W 5 days gestation age when test is taken. Is HCG level low? Doc said 2000 is expected
BetaHCG may be OK: The ranges of normal levels of betaHCG are quite variable and one value of 654 may not be considered a reliable means to date your pregnancy. Serial measurements of betaHCG x2 or 3, normally doubling levels and reassuring sonographic findings once the betaHCG have passed 1500 to 2000 will give you a much more accurate sense of the viability, location and of the gestational age of your pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I'm supposed to be 6w 4d my hCG levels were tested today and in the 70000 is that a sign of molar pregnancy or would thy be higher?
A little high: For 6w 4d, that's a little high. Doesn't necessarily mean you have a molar pregnancy. You could actually be a few days father than 6w 4d. You could also be carrying multiples. Though it's on the high end, it could also be normal. An ultrasound would definitely help you determine, schedule one asap if you're worried. ...Read more
I'm 7 weeks pregnant, a week ago my hCG level was 397, is there anything to worry about? What is the ideal hCG level at this stage of pregnancy?
Doesn't add up: 7 weeks and 397 are not adding up. Here's a great website that gives some good ranges according to age of pregnancy. It's possible that you're not 7 weeks pregnant.... An ultrasound would help a lot to correlate the information and provide you reassurance. Talk to your doctor about an ultrasound. Hope all's well! ...Read more
Pregnant, hcg levels trending 100-208-278-350 over 2 weeks...no results on u/s...could it still be a viable pregnancy? No bleeding or cramps
Hcg: Hcg levels rise in a variable fashion. I certainly wouldn't see anything in the uterus with those levels. Maybe ask your physician to do a progesterone level. A normal is above 8 in pregnancy and nonviable pregnancies and ectopics are usually (not always) associated with very low levels often times less than 2. Not every OB will do progesterone levels, but it won't hurt to ask. ...Read more
5 wks preg and hcg levels are decreasing. Over 30 hours later and still no cramping or bleeding. Is a m/c inevitable or could the pregnancy succeed?
Likely miscarriage: If your hcg levels are going down, it is very unlikely that this will be a successful pregnancy. It can take your body a week or two, sometimes longer, to actually begin the process of bleeding/cramping. You need to see your doctor to make sure the pregnancy is not an ectopic (in the tube), and if it is non viable pregnancy then you can discuss options with your doctor about treatment options. ...Read more
I'm confused:some doctors say that an hCG level of 634 is possible only a few days after intercourse? Others say no it would be a week +into pregnancy
Not possible.: It's impossible for HCG to be detected in the blood until after the embryo implants into the lining of the uterus. This happens at about 7 days after conception. For the first few days after conception, the embryo is free floating. There is no way to detect a pregnancy until implantation occurs. You'll need to use your judgement about which answer seems correct. ...Read more
Maybe;sono is better: Levels of blood betaHCG obtained after 4 to 6 weeks of pregnancy can vary very widely and usually reflect trophoblastic activity or placental development but do not necessarily the status of the embryo. A transvaginal sonogram performed by a skilled certified sonographer will provide you better information and answer your question. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
HCG: A positive pregnancy test means that the HCG level has become high enough to detect – for blood tests that means over 25 mIU/ml. If this was a blood test, please discuss with the ordering provider. ...Read more
