Partial mole: The HCG levels found with a partial molar pregnancy are usually higher than a normal pregnancy, but not always. It is important to follow the HCG titer until it goes to non-detectable levels and stays there.

I have high hCG levels in my blood but my pregnancy isn't showing up on an ultrasound. What could be wrong?

I have high hCG levels in my blood but my pregnancy isn't showing up on an ultrasound. What could be wrong?

How high?: How high are the HCG levels? 100? 100, 000? Lots of possible answers depending on how high level is, can range from simple thigns like looking too early, to concerns about ectopic/tubal pregnancy. Keep in close touch with your doctor until this is resolved, and good luck!

Wat dosage of cytotec (misoprostol) to give to terminate 4week 5 days pregnancy if beta hCG levels going low?

Wat dosage of cytotec (misoprostol) to give to terminate 4week 5 days pregnancy if beta hCG levels going low?

May not need: If beta HCG is dropping you likely are already having a miscarriage. Most physicians aren't recommending using Cytotec (misoprostol) alone to terminate a pregnancy. Most mds will provide Mifepristone combined with cytotec (misoprostol). I realize that some women will obtain Cytotec (misoprostol) in mexico or on-line and use at home without a doctor. This isn't safe. See a md if you need assistance with terminating a pregnancy.

BY the time your hCG level is high enough to detect in a home pregnancy test how many weeks pregnant will you be?

Ralph881: Believe it or not, home pregnancy tests are positive at very low HCG levels in the first 2-3 weeks of pregnancy and sometimes even earlier. The key is performing the test on the first urine after a night's sleep so it is concentrated and not dilute and performing the test exactly as instructed

I had 2 pregnancy blood tests, both showed hCG level: less than 1 and less than 2. Does that confirm that I'm not pregnant?

Timing of test: The tests tell you that the results are not diagnostic of pregnancy. How many days is your period overdue? Even a blood pregnancy test may not become positive till about a couple of days after the missed period.

I'm perfectly sure I'm 4w2d pregnant (gestational age). My hCG level is 690. Is it too high? Could it be twin pregnancy?

HCG: Twins are always possible. The HCG number may be inaccurate in terms of dating. The best way to be sure, or to diagnose twinning is to have an ultrasound.

After conception then comes implantation? And then after that I can take a pregnancy test? Where hcg levels will be more active?

After conception then comes implantation? And then after that I can take a pregnancy test? Where hcg levels will be more active?

See below: Hcg which is known as pregnancy hormone is only produced after implantation which occurs 5-7 days after fertilization. A urine pregnancy test is usually positive right around the day of a missed period

I'm supposed to be 6w 4d my hCG levels were tested today and in the 70000 is that a sign of molar pregnancy or would thy be higher?

A little high: For 6w 4d, that's a little high. Doesn't necessarily mean you have a molar pregnancy. You could actually be a few days father than 6w 4d. You could also be carrying multiples. Though it's on the high end, it could also be normal. An ultrasound would definitely help you determine, schedule one asap if you're worried.

Doctor said that some sensitive home pregnancy tests can pick up a positive result with an hCG level of just 1mlu. Possible? How?

Does it matter?: Most tests pick up a bhcg of about 20. I am not sure why this is useful information though. A bhcg coubles every 48 hours. Even in the rare cicumstance where someone checks a test so early it can not detect it (say a level of 19) 48 hours later your level is high enough for detection. Home pregnancy tests are very simple and very accurate.
