How Do I Increase H Cg Levels Naturally
HCG fluctuation?: Hello Ruby, HCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) IN PREGANCY goes up and stays up in the pregnancy and goes down if you miscarry or have a normal full term delivery. If it is used as a marker for various cancers it will go down as treatment begins to be effective and fluctuate depending on the type of cancer & treatment. Healthy people should be low! Thx ...Read more
Not really: If you are referring to the recent "hcg diet", which involves using HCG as well as severe calorie restriction, I would recommend against it. Buying HCG is illegal, (http://www.Fda.Gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm281333.Htm) and extreme dieting can be very dangerous. It is possible to supplement HCG through consuming your own human placental tissue (placenta pills / placental encapsulation). ...Read more
My beta hcg level was 144 on Mar 21. 2 days after (Mar 23) it was 540. Is this increase of HCG a problem? Or can it be twins?
My hCG level tested after 14 days of FET and it shows 19.32, is it really conceived? Is there any possibility to increase hCG afterwards.
Retest: I feel quite confident that your doctor scheduled you to have a repeat bhcg test to confirm that the levels are rising. This is usually done a few days to a week after the first one. Once you have two numbers you can establish a rising trend indicating that things are going well. ...Read more

Do hCG levels increase during a miscarriage or increase then decrease? Was told I miscarried. In 1 week level went from 412 to 3548. 2nd opinion?
See your Doc: If your HCG levels are still rising, you need to be re-evaluated by an Ob/Gyn. After a miscarriage, the levels should continue to drop to zero. Rising HCG levels after a miscarriage can indicate something serious such as Choriocarcinoma. Its also possible that the initial diagnosis of a miscarriage was incorrect. Don't wait to have it checked out. Best wishes! ...Read more

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
Possibly: Usually the numbers double about every two days. They would need to have been drawn at the same lab to be correlated. At these levels, you should be able to see a sac and probably a heart beat on ultrasound. The ultrasound would be the best way to know for sure now. ...Read more

My wife made an embryo transplantation 12 days ago (PGD)her beta HCG level is 2.4 is there a chance that it increases on day 14to be pregnant.?
An hCG level of less than 5mIU/ml is considered negative for pregnancy, and anything above 25mIU/ml is considered positive for pregnancy. In 85% of normal pregnancies, the hCG level will double every 48 – 72 hours.
If her level doubles in the next 2-3 days you'll have a pretty good idea which way is going. Good luck to you both! ...Read more

Is there any way to stop normal bleeding in first trimester. Doctor said its not a miscarriage just normal bleeding. Is there a way to stop it and is there a way to help raise my hcg levels?
Unfortunately no &no: Unfortunately, there is no way to stop the first trimester pregnancy bleeding at this time. It may lead to miscarriage or not especially with stagnant hCG levels. Only the continuance of the pregnancy will raise hCG levels and not any other external treatment. ...Read more
Maybe: It depends on where you are in your pregnancy. Usually HCG levels double every 48 hours in the first few weeks but I have seen totally normal pregnancies in women where it didn't. Generally, our concern goes up if they are not going up by 66% in 48 hours but that doesn't necessarily mean anything horrible. Have patience and ask for an ultrasound once they get to 2000-3000. ...Read more

What means if my hCG levels are 87500? I had a scan last week and they just saw the sac, how far am i??
Worrisome...: An empty sac with HCG levels of 87500 is worrisome. With HCG levels this high, you should at least see a fetal pole and a heart-beat. Make sure you see your Ob and find out what is going on. I don't have enough information to tell you. Its hard to know how far along you are from just the HCG level. ...Read more
