Hcg levels - 6wks levels were 2000, 7.5 weeks levels were 9000.   Slow rising, but rising. Should i be concerned of a miscarriage?

Yes get ultrasound: By the time your HCG is 9000, there should be a visual heartbeat in the fetus seen on ultrasound. Once a heart beat is seen, chances of loss are significantly decreased. So get an ultrasound. ...Read more

I am 4-5wks pregnant. My hCG levels are rising but only by 200-600 every 2 days. My current level is 6845. Is this a sign of miscarriage or ectopic?

I am 4-5wks pregnant. My hCG levels are rising but only by 200-600 every 2 days. My current level is 6845. Is this a sign of miscarriage or ectopic?

Not necessarily: Newer data shows that hcg can rise more slowly than was previously thought and still be a totally normal pregnancy. With hcg 6845, speak to your doctor about an ultrasound - there should be a gestational sac seen in the uterus that will rule out ectopic. ...Read more

US correct: Although the HCG levels are present they are very low when one considers normal levels when someone is pregnant. YOu may have already miscarried and what is remaining is products of conception and may need a D&C if they do not expel themselves. My prayers are with you. ...Read more

Just had my third miscarriage in a row and when i started bleesing went to a&e and was told my hCG level was 5 can it be a problem with the progestron?

Could be cervix, etc: This could be due to an incompetent cervix and may need what is called a cerclage to correct it. There could be a Progesterone deficiency and so supplements may help. There could be other issues, like chromosomal abnormalities, preeclampsia, and hypothyroidism involved, so it would be smart to see your doctor for an exam and hormone studies to find out. Best of luck. ...Read more

How quickly can your hCG levels drop after a miscarriage?

7-60 days.: Return of the serum HCG concentration to undetectable following pregnancy termination varies widely from 7 to 60 days. The period of time depends primarily upon the HCG concentration at the time of termination. The HCG concentration peaks at 8 to 11 weeks at approximately 100, 000 miu. This is in contrast with term pregnancy, for which the HCG concentration is lower. ...Read more

Why would my hcg levels be at 13 5 weeks after a miscarriage?

Can take a long time: It can sometimes take a very long time for pregnancy hormone levels to completely go below the detection limit of the test (e.g., 5 mIU/ml). As long as there is pregnancy hormone activity around it is better to follow it to be sure it does not flare up. It is also good to be on effective birth control during this time period. Otherwise a new pregnancy can be mistaken for a flare up. ...Read more
