I am 4 weeks and 6 days with hcg levels at 1164. Do these numbers seem hi or low or does it all seem ok?

Normal.: The range of normal for beta HCG hormone in pregnancy is very large. These numbers are well within the normal range for your dates. Follow up with a prenatal visit for an ultrasound according to the timeline your doctor or midwife suggests; seek care earlier if you develop vaginal bleeding or crampy pelvic pain. ...Read more

Borderline: The ultrasound findings are what is important. The Progesterone level is ok. When it is less than 5 that is much more worrisome. The most important thing ion the development of the pregnancy itself! ...Read more

Can one low hCG level reading determine a miscarriage??

Not really: One BHCG level really only confirms you are pregnant. It needs to be compared to subsequent levels and in the context of your clinical situation. How far along are you or should you be? Are you having bleeding and/or cramping etc. All these play into a possible diagnosis. ...Read more

What causes low hCG levels? I ovulated a week early could that be a reason?

What causes low hCG levels? I ovulated a week early could that be a reason?

It depends: Hcg levels identify a pregnancy. Low levels may represent a very early pregnancy depending on how many days you are late for your expected period. You will have to have more tests to see if it doubles or not. If it decreases you had a chemical pregnancy. Talk with your OB about getting further tests to see if the pregnancy is normal. ...Read more

Can my progesterone levels being low can it cause hCG levels to not double?

Luteal phase defect: Low Progesterone levels may be associated with a cause of recurrent miscarriage called a luteal phase defect and is treatable with first trimester progesterone. Extremely low progesterones and abnormal HCG levels may well be an ectopic or tubal pregnancy. Not everyone's HCG doubles every 2-3 days like we make them think. A 20% rise every 2-3 days may be normal and eventually you plateau. ...Read more

A week late everything has came out negative could I still be pregnant? Is it that my hCG levels are low?

It depends: The earliest way to tell if you are pregnant is with an early detection pregnant test done on your first voided urine in the morning. This can be positive even a few days before a missed period. Your doctor's exam should be able to tell if it has been more than 4 weeks since ovulation. ...Read more

Doesn't look good: The general rule of thumb for Beta-HCG levels is that they should double every 48 hours. A normal pregnancy would have gone from 8000 on Monday to 16000 on Wednesday. This is Thursday, and it is going down - not a good sign for a viable pregnancy (sorry). Be careful, because this could be a tubal pregnancy! You may need an ultrasound to look for the baby. If you have pain, go in! Maybe miscarriage ...Read more

Hello, I ha two early miscarriages. Both happened in 5 weeks. My hCG levels were each time very low 6.5. Please help me. Why do I miscarry so early?

Blighted ovum: There are so many things that must happen just right at just the right time for us to have normal babies that it is miraculous that it happens at all. Some studies suggest that 1/2 of all pregnancies end in miscarriage and 1/2 or the time we don't even realize we are pregnant. There are a lot of things that can cause this including genetic problems. See a doctor specializing in high risk pregnancies ...Read more
