My HCG at 5w5d (evening) was 22, 000. I am concerned that this indicates down syndrome. Are high HCG levels in early pregnancy an indicator of DS?
Definitely not: This does not mean Downs, nothing suggests Down's at 5 weeks. The 22, 000 is pretty normal. Good wishes. ...Read more
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
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
If your hCG beta levels are doubling an an early pregnancy, do you still have a chance of having an ectopic pregnancy?
Can u have a hCG level less than 2 and be pregnant. Could it be that you are too early in pregnancy and would it doulble in a few days?
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
How hCG level increase in ectopic pregnancy andhow early it can bw found nd any peculiar symptoms?
HCG: Is found at some amount in any pregnancy. In an ectopic pregnancy the baby plants in the tube instead of the uterus. As it grows and stretches the tube it causes pain. If not found the tube will burst and needing will start and the mom can die. It is not possible for this baby to live. ...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 tested positive for pregnancy. A quantitative hCG test at 3w6d since LMP showed a level of 40. 5 days later my hCG was 120. Is this increase too low?
There is wide variation in HCG levels in normal pregnancies. Your levels are within normal limits. See this site for more info.

In short, yes: Dropping HCG levels mean an abnormal pregnancy if they are measured during the early weeks of pregnancy, this does not hold true if measured later in pregnancy when levels can drop and be normal. There are occasional time when they may not rise as expected when there are significant maternal illnesses as well. ...Read more

Would a quantitative blood pregnancy test result of less than 0.5 hCG be accurate at 5 weeks or is it too early?
Even if a woman's hCG levels are quite high in early pregnancy, wouldn't the embryo still grow at the same pace as what doctors & textbooks say?
Yes: You are correct. The embryo will grow at the same pace irregardless of what the HCG levels are. Best wishes! ...Read more

I had my FET done. My doctor told me to do an HCG test 7 days after. Results showed level 1. Can an early test detect a pregnancy or is it negative?
Too early to test: A negative result on a test done too early is not reliable. You may wish to repeat the test in a week or so. ...Read more
My hCG is 23, yet my FSH @ <1 miu & my prolactin @ 33. Could I be in the early stages of pregnancy or is the hCG affected by my other high/low levels?
Pregnant: Recheck a quantitative (blood) pregnancy test at a later date to see if the value is rising or not. ...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
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
After a early positive pregnancy test with blood work and hCG level of 40, progesterone at 6.5 would you prescribe progesterone to boost the level?
I had an early miscarriage on July 29th however the nausea I had felt from beginning of pregnancy has continued and gotten more intense. My OB/GYN took blood test for hcg levels and they went all the way down by 2 weeks after. What could be causing the co
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
Doubles: In very early pregnancies the general rule is the HCG doubles every 48 hours up to a certain level, then gradually increases. ...Read more
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?
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
Can you have a fantom pregnancy? And would ur blood detect high hCG levels if ur having a fantom 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
Can tell: A single HCG level does not reliably predict gestational age. A normal pregnancy HCG will roughly double every 48 hours. Within the next several days the pregnancy should have grown enough to accurately date with ultrasound. ...Read more
Pregnancy unclear: That is so low it is day one or two. It is unclear if you are really pregnant. I would repeat the test in two to thee days to see if this changes. ...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

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
