Is 11, 000 hCG level normal for a 9 week pregnancy? I have also been bleeding and spotting for the past month.

Is 11, 000 hCG level normal for a 9 week  pregnancy? I have also been bleeding and spotting for the past month.

Possible: The best use of your HCG level is to follow & see if a viable pregnancy is forming. At 11, 000.0 - a fetal pole should be visible on ultrasound exam. A normal pregnancy should also have increasing titers & usually doubles every 48 hours early in pregnancy. Spotting is common early in pregnancy & until the above is done, we can't say if your pregnancy is viable or not. Good luck. ...Read more

Keep follow up: You will need to keep your follow up appointments. BHCG typically increases by 66% every 48 hours. Bleeding in pregnancy is common but never normal. Most of the time things are ok but it can indicate a tubal pregnancy or miscarriage in some cases. Follow up is needed. ...Read more

Hcg levels: It really shouldn't go down. However, if the tests were done at 2 different labs you can't compare the two being a couple days apart. I would repeat the level in about a week. Might be a good idea to check a progesterone level as well as very low levels are associated with miscarriage or tubal pregnancy. ...Read more

I was seen in the ER for bleeding in my 6th week of pregnancy. My hCG levels were 4483. A week later my hCG was at 1751 and now 5 days later at 1883?

Not Normal: Sorry but your HCG levels are more consistent with a non-viable pregnancy. Bleeding this early could be from an abnormal pregnancy & the next step is to confirm this with an ultrasound. Options include awaiting spontaneous miscarriage or a D&C if the bleeding becomes heavy or if significant pain occurs. Again, sorry for your pregnancy loss. ...Read more

5. week pregnancy. HCG level went from 986 to 756 in 48 hours, no bleeding, no other symptoms of misscarriage. embryo not visible yet. what to expect?

Hcg dropping: Your hcg level should not drop in a viable pregnancy. I would have it repeated in a few more days to confirm it is dropping. A dropping hcg is consistent with a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. However, while lab error is unlikely, I still repeat a level if dropping and no miscarriage symptoms. ...Read more

Pregnant, hcg levels trending 100-208-278-350 over 2 weeks...no results on u/s...could it still be a viable pregnancy? No bleeding or cramps

Pregnant, hcg levels trending 100-208-278-350 over 2 weeks...no results on u/s...could it still be a viable pregnancy? No bleeding or cramps

Hcg: Hcg levels rise in a variable fashion. I certainly wouldn't see anything in the uterus with those levels. Maybe ask your physician to do a progesterone level. A normal is above 8 in pregnancy and nonviable pregnancies and ectopics are usually (not always) associated with very low levels often times less than 2. Not every OB will do progesterone levels, but it won't hurt to ask. ...Read more

Unsure: The HCG is very low and likely should be much higher for a normal pregnancy. You should recheck the hcg, if it is falling you have probably miscarried. Yor doctor may want to perform an ultrasound to evaluate the uterus and it's contents. ...Read more

5 wks preg and hcg levels are decreasing. Over 30 hours later and still no cramping or bleeding. Is a m/c inevitable or could the pregnancy succeed?

5 wks preg and hcg levels are decreasing.  Over 30 hours later and still no cramping or bleeding. Is a m/c inevitable or could the pregnancy succeed?

Likely miscarriage: If your hcg levels are going down, it is very unlikely that this will be a successful pregnancy. It can take your body a week or two, sometimes longer, to actually begin the process of bleeding/cramping. You need to see your doctor to make sure the pregnancy is not an ectopic (in the tube), and if it is non viable pregnancy then you can discuss options with your doctor about treatment options. ...Read more
