If hCG level reduces slowly than expected will there be a reason other than miscarriage?

No: Hcg has a fairly long half life so it may take some time for the levels to fall. Usually HCG levels are followed after medical treatment for ectopic pregnancy or after spontaneous abortion. ...Read more

Needs tracking: A BHCG is very low. It needs to be repeated to determine if it is trending upward indicating a very early pregnancy or trending downward which would indicate a very early miscarriage sometimes referred to as a chemical pregnancy. You do not need to repeat the urine tests. A healthtap doctor in your state can order the BHCG for you through a virtual visit. ...Read more

Two months late with a negative pregnancy test, is there a chance that I could be pregnant n just have to low of a hCG level to pick up?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

What could be the reason behind having high HCG levels?

What could be the reason behind having high HCG levels?

HCG: Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a hormone that normally supports the development of the egg in the ovary, its release and then helps support pregnancy. However, some abnormal tissues can also produce this hormone or one very similar to it. Most pregnancy tests are based on this hormone. It use as a tumor marker requires a different setting and test system. ...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

My hCG level was 229 at 4 weeks and at 4 weeks and 2 days it was 329 there was 36 hours between blood tests. Are tge numbers ok?

Not clear yet: The first number is very high, suggestive of twins. The second number did not rise as much as expected. So it is possible one one survived. It could be overall an abnormal pregnancy. It could be totally fine with a rise just now as much as expected. It will take another 10 days or so to figure out. ...Read more

My implantation is today is there any hcg level That I can test first morning urine today? Or wait 2 more days. AF is due the 11th.

After missed period: It is too soon to test. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Hello, I got a blood hcg test and it was 5.3 miu. I ovulated 7 days before the test and my usual hcg level is 2 miu. Is 5.3 miu considered pregnant?

No: Even sensitive pregnancy tests are not accurate enough to distinguish 5 mIU as positive or negative. It is too early at 7 dpo: pregnancy tests are not reliable until 11-12 days after ovulation. Good wishes. ...Read more

I had 1 AA/5 day embryo transferred 12 days ago and got a positive blood test but with a hCG level of 12.2. Is this good or bad?

Normal: This level is fine. It means you do have a pregnancy and is within the normal limits we expect to see for a pregnancy around 2 weeks. This number should continue to double every 48-72 hours in a healthy pregnancy. At 3 weeks, you should be anywhere between 5 and 50mIu/mL.
Congrats! ...Read more

I am 14 days late. All urine tests have been negative and hcg level done 12 days late; (-) too. Test this am showed faint line. Could I be pregnant?

Potentially pregnant: A urine pregnancy test turns positive the earliest one week after conception. As long as there is no menstrual period, ovulation can happen at any time. A weakly positive test would be consistent with pregnancy, if the woman had unprotected sexual intercourse a week or more before the test turned positive. ...Read more

I had bleeding last week. Going possibly on 8wks preg. I took preg test 8 days after I bled. If miscarriage happened how long does hCG level go down?

Could be pregnant: I trust that you are under the care of doctor for your and your baby's health. Hcg above 25 is generally diagnostic of pregnancy. You may have tested a bit too soon. It is generally better to test after a missed period. If you miss your period, you may wish to do a home pregnancy test, use first morning urine and follow the instructions in the kit carefully. ...Read more

I had a miscarriage two 2 weeks at 6weeks and 4 days. Is it to early to start and try to concieve. I have no bleeding and hCG level is down to 4.?

Sure, if U want to.: There is no limitation to sexual activity after a miscarriage, other than how you feel and if you think you are ready for it. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily orally and resume sexual activity as soon as you feel up to it - with or without protection depending on whether you desire a pregnancy at this time or not. Best of luck! ...Read more

My wife's LMP is 11-03-17. Yesterday BHCG value is 654. she is 4W 5 days gestation age when test is taken. Is HCG level low? Doc said 2000 is expected

BetaHCG may be OK: The ranges of normal levels of betaHCG are quite variable and one value of 654 may not be considered a reliable means to date your pregnancy. Serial measurements of betaHCG x2 or 3, normally doubling levels and reassuring sonographic findings once the betaHCG have passed 1500 to 2000 will give you a much more accurate sense of the viability, location and of the gestational age of your pregnancy. ...Read more

Missed miscarriage at week 8, baby lost heart beat. Induced miscarriage with cytote 3 weeks ago, now hcg level 300 (was 337 two days ago), need D&C?

Missed miscarriage at week 8, baby lost heart beat. Induced miscarriage with cytote 3 weeks ago, now hcg level 300 (was 337 two days ago), need D&C?

Probably...: Cytotec (misoprostol) will usually cause you to pass the tissue left in your uterus. If it doesn't, a D&C is frequently performed. Its also a good idea to continue repeating the HCG level after the D&C until it is zero. This will ensure that there is no other problems related to the miscarriage such as gestational trophoblastic disease. Best Wishes! ...Read more

Sounds like it: If you have been having BHCG every 2 days since Aug 5th it seems to me you would also have seen a doctor by now who is ordering the blood tests. It is important that your doctor go over your results with you and explain the plan of care. A falling BHCG level is typically indicative a miscarriage. Please confirm with your doctor who has all of your information ...Read more
