Is a miscarriage imminent if my hCG is not doubling?

Is a miscarriage imminent if my hCG is not doubling?

Not necessarily.: As with anything else in nature, there is a physiologic variation regarding the doubling time for beta HCG in the first trimester. The rule of thumb is that it should double every 48 hours if it is a viable intrauterine pregnancy. Failure to do so suggests blighted ovum/miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, or even normal early pregnancy. See your gynecologist and get pelvic ultrasound to know for sure! ...Read more

Hcg level not doubling saw a heartbeat rate 115 at 6 weeks. High chance of miscarriage?

Hcg level not doubling saw a heartbeat rate 115 at 6 weeks.  High chance of miscarriage?

Advanced maternal ag: Unfortunately it is a watch and wait scenario. After the age of 35 the risk of miscarriage is much higher. The pregnancy hormone does not exactly have to double but it does need to rise and we hope for the heart rate to stay 120-180. ...Read more

My hCG levels are not doubling. 06.02.2014 = 926. 11.02.2014 = 6054. 13.02.2014 = 9390. Is this a sign of miscarriage? Do i still stand a chance?

You need a: Transvaginal ultrasound at this point, following HCG levels is much much less helpful. By the way, that looks like doubling to me, unless i own a different calculator than you do. ...Read more

6 weeks hCG 700 out of doubling form 48 hour period scan showed yolk sac abnormal shape will it survive was told would probably have miscarriage?

6 weeks hCG 700 out of doubling form 48 hour period scan showed yolk sac abnormal shape will it survive was told would probably have miscarriage?

Unclear: If the hCG doubled in 48 hours, then you can be reassured. A pregnancy with an hCG of 700 is too small to see on ultrasound, so the serial labs are much more helpful. ...Read more

5 weeks prg I have been Spotting light peach light pink for 5 days. Hcg is doubling and everything else is fine why is this happening, miscarriage?

Hcg beta at 14dpo=70 16dpo=106. Doubling time= 80 hours. What are chances of miscarriage? Slow x2 time happened to me in last (healthy) pregnancy too.

Hcg beta at 14dpo=70 16dpo=106. Doubling time= 80 hours. What are chances of miscarriage? Slow x2 time happened to me in last (healthy) pregnancy too.

May be normal: You cannot predict anything from these data. Do not take the "doubling time" too literally, there is some variability and 166% increase in 48 hours is still within normal many times. Good wishes. ...Read more

5w 4d pregnant. Progesterone dropped 18 to 12.6 w/ 200 mg vg supplements. Why would it drop? HCG is 5665 doubling 33 hrs Does this mean miscarriage?

No: The fact that your HCG is doubling is very reassuring. The progesterone is used more as a secondary test when the HCG isn't doubling and supplements can be used if it isn't high enough. This does not mean a miscarriage is inevitable. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Miscarriage...6 weeks pregnant since miscarriage begin my girlfriend has been bleeding for 33 day with sever pain my friend had a miscarriage around 6 weeks pregnant and when they did an ultra sound they saw nothing and her hCG count was not doubling ever

Miscarriage...6 weeks pregnant since miscarriage begin my girlfriend has been bleeding for 33 day with sever pain my friend had a miscarriage around 6 weeks pregnant and when they did an ultra sound they saw nothing and her hCG count was not doubling ever

You : You are correct regarding the d&c. She likely has products of conception still present in the uterus which is causing her bleeding. The D&C (dilatation and curretage) will clean the uterus out and stop the bleeding. If her doctor has "blown it off" then she should seek a second opinion. I hope she is better soon. ...Read more
