Increase H Cg Levels
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.

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
