Surgical abortion 7/7/15.blood hcg level 8/6/15= 9. 8/19/15 ovulation positive.8/22/15 pg test positive. No real period since the abortion.Help please?

Surgical abortion 7/7/15.blood hcg level 8/6/15= 9. 8/19/15 ovulation positive.8/22/15 pg test positive. No real period since the abortion.Help please?

Pregnant: The most likely explanation is that you are pregnant again. Did you have sex after the abortion? If your BHCG was 9 back on 8.6.15 then that gives the doctor a point of comparison. Another BHCG can be done now. That number can be compared to the other to see if this is a new pregnancy or lingering BHCG from the pregnancy termination. ...Read more

Intercourse...Then hCG levels of 600ml/iu 3days later confirming pregnancy? Impossible right? (and there aren't any hCG producing medical issues).

Curious: It would seem that you were already pregnant when you had sex three days before the HCG level was checked. It is not likely that the HCG level would be 600 by three days post conception. ...Read more

Normal: The results are normal and you should be reassured. The overall result - not increased for trisomies - is what to focus on given it's the result of an algorithm designed for this purpose. Great news. ...Read more

Does the hCG diet (using injections) effect the beta hCG in a quantatative blood test?

Does the hCG diet (using injections) effect the beta hCG in a quantatative blood test?

Beta HCG : A very good question. The pills and injections given in the "hcg diet" will cause blood and urine levels of bhcg to rise. However, two measurements, a week or more apart, should differentiate between pregnancy ( where the levels will rise predictably) and diet drugs, assuming you are taking a constant dose for the diet treatments. ...Read more

Is 1772 high hCG level for 17 dpo?

Well.... : It is hard to make a judgment based on one isolated hormone level. BHCG levels vary widely from person to person. It's better to follow a trend by checking a second level a few days later. That gives you more information. ...Read more

Currently 8 weeks pregnant with Toxsoplasma values IGG 90 (Positive) and IGM 1.54 (positive). Had an history of toxoplasma @ 2008, should we continue?

Currently 8 weeks pregnant with Toxsoplasma values IGG 90 (Positive) and IGM 1.54 (positive). Had an history of toxoplasma @ 2008, should we continue?

Discuss with OB: You need to discuss this with your OB, with probably a referral to a Maternal Fetal specialist to discuss the risk. A weekly positive IgM is possible from a prior exposure and not from a recent infection. Your MD may want to follow titers to see if they are changing. The IgG titer reflects antibodies you have from the prior infection in 2009. ...Read more

With so many false positives and negatives, does the quad marker blood test any real value, beyond random chance ?

With so many false positives and negatives, does the quad marker blood test any real value, beyond random chance ?

Efficiency: It guides the search for down's and grave neural tube defects in women who might want to end such pregnancies; it will miss some, but the alternative is much more problematic testing for all pregnant women. You are playing the odds but unlike in las vegas, "the house" is trying to give the most favorable odds to the patient. But getting a false-positive is most upsetting & we can all relate. ...Read more

"i'm pregnant 4 weeks. Before pregnant blood test toxoplasma igg+ >2000iu/ml(reference range<1.6), IgM weakly positive>0.6. Is it safe for my baby?

"i'm pregnant 4 weeks. Before pregnant blood test toxoplasma igg+ >2000iu/ml(reference range<1.6), IgM weakly positive>0.6. Is it safe for my baby?

Likely protected: In acute infection, igm is initially elevated alone, and then igg is positive within a couple of weeks. Igg remains positive for your lifetime, but igm can persist for months to years. I would say that this new pregnancy is protected, but given the outcome of your prior pregnancy, you must discuss this in consult with a high-risk OB to confirm what I am saying! ...Read more
