Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

I am in 6th week of pregnancy as per the urine and blood test ... Hcg level in blood is 768... Do i need scan to conform my pregnancy?

Maybe not yet: The HCG level suggests you may not yet far enough along to show on ultrasound. Suggest you get the HCG repeated in a week if you are worried and confirm that the HCG has increased appropriately. If HCG is ok then get the scan when your doctor wants the routine fetal survey. ...Read more

Can hcg levels 4.2miU/ml show up 28 days after sex on blood test? Does every woman have hcg levels regardless of pregnancy or not?

Can hcg levels 4.2miU/ml show up 28 days after sex on blood test? 
Does every woman have hcg levels regardless of pregnancy or not?

Less than 5: An HCG value of less than 5 28 days after sex essentially rules out pregnancy. Normal levels in non-pregnant state are less than 5. A level of greater than 25 is diagnostic of pregnancy. Between 5 and 25, the test needs to be repeated in a week or so. As I mentioned earlier, from the information you provided your highly unlikely to be pregnant. ...Read more

HCG isn't the only: cause of nausea during pregnancy. High estrogen levels and other unknown factors may contribute to it. You don't mention if you've started having periods again. If all your hormones are back to pre-pregnancy levels and your periods have returned to normal, perhaps its time to look for another cause. I wish you the best. Dr. Anne ...Read more

I underwent an IVF and the embryo transfer was done on 22 nov. Now after first blood test on 11 nov 2012 the hCG level is 8686.83. Is it normal?

I underwent an IVF and the embryo transfer was done on 22 nov. Now after first blood test on 11 nov 2012 the hCG level is 8686.83. Is it normal?

High: I assume that HCG was from 12/11/12. That is about 5-6 weeks pregnant depending on whether you had day 3 or day 5 transfer. That number could be normal but definitely suggests multiple pregnancies. Your ultrasound will show you what is happening. ...Read more

See below: Ms. Kathryn 440: You have two related questions. It would be better to talk to your doctor for explanation. Blood HCG needs to be higher than 25 to diagnose pregnancy. It is not clear how a urine pregnancy test told you that you are 2-3 weeks pregnant. You may repeat the urine pregnancy test, be sure to follow the instructions for the test carefully. Better would be to see your doctor for a repeat blood test and if needed an ultrasound examination. ...Read more

Hello. My hCG level is 35.5 in the blood test. What does it mean. Am i pregnant or not.?

Probably not: If you have an elevated HCG then you are pregnant. If the level is falling, or if it isn't rising as fast as expected, then there is a problem with that pregnancy. Talk with your doctor about the meaning of this result. ...Read more

Serial HCG: Pregnancy hormone concentrations double over a 48 h time period in a viable pregnancy or by the same token cut in half, if there was a miscarriage. If a doctor after a miscarrige is not sure, whether all pregnancy hormone producing tissue was aborted, serial hcg test can help determine that. ...Read more
