50% up every 2 days: Most healthy early pregnancies have a HCG level that rises by at least 50% every 2 days - it's often faster than this and it may double or nearly double every 2 days. It depends how far along you are too - no hormone can go up exponentially forever and HCG peaks at around 10 weeks. ...Read more

Progesterone and hCG levels early pregnancy after ivf?

Progesterone and hCG levels early pregnancy after ivf?

Ok: Most ivf clinics only measure HCG levels approximately 9 days after a day 5 embryo transfer. However, some clinics feel that the combination of HCG levels and Progesterone levels have a more predictive value of a good pregnancy than HCG levels alone. Personally, we only measure hcg. Hope this helps and good luck. ...Read more

Some docs say hCG levels have wide variations, but some say that the rise is very consistent in early pregnancy and that it always doubles. Explain...

Both are right: The absolute number an pregnant individual has as a result at one point in time has a broad range. You cannot predict the number of weeks of pregnancy solely based on the absolute number. However if you take one persons value and follow it over time, it should double every two days. ...Read more

I am pregnant. I went to doctor and they looked through ultra sound couldn't see anything. Said early pregnancy hCG level is 28. Is baby ok?

You tell us: Only you know when you could have gotten pregnant. The answer to this question is only going to be known with dates and more data. What did your physician tell you? Why did you not share that VITAL piece of information in your question? If you are more than six weeks then no baby on ultrasound means the pregnancy is not viable. ...Read more

Is hcg level 46 considered low in early pregnancy? Knowing that my period is irregular (30-39) and last period was on 17 april. Which week of pregnancy

Is hcg level 46 considered low in early pregnancy? Knowing that my period is irregular (30-39) and last period was on 17 april. Which week of pregnancy

Do a follow up hCG: A level of 46 indicates very early pregnancy, most likely your OB will advise some serial levels every 48 hours or so for perhaps the next 2 or 3, and this should hopefully help determine how the pregnancy is doing. If the level rise looks appropriate, your OB will then determine when it may be optimum to do a pelvic ultrasound to determine the well being of the pregnancy. Best Wishes ...Read more

HCG isn't the only: Cause of nausea during pregnancy. High estrogen levels and other unknown factors may contribute to it. You don't mention if you've started having periods again. If all your hormones are back to pre-pregnancy levels and your periods have returned to normal, perhaps its time to look for another cause. I wish you the best. Dr. Anne ...Read more

Would hCG at 634 be very early into pregnancy? Within a week of pregnancy maybe?

Would hCG at 634 be very early into pregnancy? Within a week of pregnancy maybe?

Early, yes.: I think I just answered a follow up question about this topic. The HCG usually doubles every two days. It is not exact and it is not really possible to say exactly what day of pregnancy you are based on the hcg. This number is probably more than a week pregnant though. In very early pregnancy, the HCG may not even be detectable yet. ...Read more

Can this happen to someone, have high levels of hCG on one pregnancy, and then low levels of hCG on the next one?

Can this happen to someone, have high levels of hCG on one pregnancy, and then low levels of hCG on the next one?

Yes: Hcg levels not only vary between patients but also between pregnancies in the same patient. It can also vary based on the time it was drawn and even on which lab processed the specimen. The important thing is the trend of the rising hormone. A Progesterone level is also helpful in telling the health of the pregnancy. ...Read more

Ultrasound showed nothing but my hCG levels are 2600. Am I having an epotopic pregnancy?

Too early: It may be too early to tell if you are pregnant. This becomes visible at around 4-5 weeks and the hcg levels are higher. So it is important to talk to your doctor about follow up in about a week to see if there is a rise in the hcg levels. Ultrasound may see it then. ...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 more
