Hcg Levels Ultrasound
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
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

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
