HCG levels: Vary greatly and increase rapidly during early pregnancy. A single HCG level is not very reliable for predicting pregnancy well being. It requires repeated HCG levels to monitor the change in the level to provide reassuring or non-reassuring information.

If it above 1500 an ultrasound should be able to detect the pregnancy. A vaginal exam to see if the cervix is closed will help. ...Read more
