I've been taking a hCG drop that claims to be hormone free, but it tested positive on a pregnancy test. Can I get a false positive from taking these?

I've been taking a hCG drop that claims to be hormone free, but it tested positive on a pregnancy test. Can I get a false positive from taking these?

No: Hcg is a hormone so if your is hormone free then you are not taking hcg. Hcg would be destroyed by the acid in your stomach anyway. Congratulations! You are most likely pregnant. ...Read more

Does the hCG hormone produce quicker/slower depending on age? For example: a teenage girl in early pregnancy, one who hasn't tested positive yet.

Does the hCG hormone produce quicker/slower depending on age? For example: a teenage girl in early pregnancy, one who hasn't tested positive yet.

Embryo: It is the embryo that makes HCG and it is not likely that the age or the women will make a difference. It takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. Please see your doctor if you are planning to be pregnant. ...Read more

Is hcg a pregnancy hormone? If it is and I have a reading of less than 1? I'm not pregnant right because I haven't had sex in 3 months

Yes: If you have not had sex in three months and HCG is less than 1.0, you are not pregnant.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Repeat sonogram: The sonogram is going to be more important at this point than the bhcg. Bhcg levels can vary widely. You should have a repeat sonogram next week. By that point a fetus with a heart beat should be visible. Viability will be determined by sonogram not bhcg levels. ...Read more

Detected pregnancy 6 days early, digital test increased by a week every 4 days. Only 4wks 5 days now and blood hCG 6680. Could it be twins?

Sure.: Hcg ranges are pretty wide. A higher than expected HCG can be because you're further along than you think, multiple gestation, or something called a molar pregnancy. That's in order of decreasing likelihood. I'd see your doctor and get an ultrasound for early dating. ...Read more

Depends....: If your partner has a normal semen analysis and the two of you have no problems with intercourse then adding in a second IUI provides you with only a minimal increase in conception chances. Some cases where a second IUI is beneficial: 1. first IUI sample is poor 2. he cannot complete intercourse with ejaculation (or has erection problem) or 3. same sex couple with only exposure to sperm being IUI ...Read more

Hcg levels increase from3144 to 5955 in 3 days with spotting is this still a healthy pregnancy?

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

Hcg rise: That's a reasonable hcg level and not necessarily associated with molar pregnancy. While many molar gestations have normal hcg levels, the classic molar presentation is severe hyperemesis with very high hcg levels (like sometimes in the millions). ...Read more

Is it true HCG can increase leydig cell count? I've read that bodybuilders use HCG and it's been proven to regrow testicle size after steroid use. Because it's growth hormone. Using that logic I can use HCG to increase my leydig count to some degree?

Is it true HCG can increase leydig cell count? I've read that bodybuilders use HCG and it's been proven to regrow testicle size after steroid use. Because it's growth hormone. Using that logic I can use HCG to increase my leydig count to some degree?

Somewhat true...: HCG mimics (binds to same receptor) as LH which in turn stimulates the Leydig cells of your testicles to produce sperm and testosterone. These Leydig cells enlarge and can provide more volume to the testicle (if it is underproducing due to testosterone supplements or primary gonadal failure). It can be used to increase testicular volume, increase testosterone, or both. ...Read more

3/10 first hCG 5373, 2nd hCG 12000 and 3/17 26491and I wil be six week's tomorrow. Could this be a molor pregnancy? Thank you

Probably not: Given that this is an unusual complication of pregnancy, I am not sure that it would be my first instinct based on these numbers. My guess is that you are thinking this because the numbers seem high for 6 weeks. But this could also be related to incorrect dating of the pregnancy and twins. It would be very easy to sort out with an ultrasound! ...Read more

Unclear questions: HCG injection will not result in pregnancy. In fact HCG injections are not good for any thing other than lightening your wallet. The injection you had in 2014, is no longer an issue.
