Why would my hCG be rising slowly after miscarriage? Lmp 2/20/2012. Postitive (beta) pregnancy test on 3/22/2012. On 3/26 started bleeding. Started off light pink in color, progressively got heavier and darker. Morning 3/27 in the ER with cramping. B

Honestly : Honestly the only way to know what is going on is to have an ultrasound. The likely explanation here is that you have retained some products of conception that were not completey loss when you were bleeding.These remnants can result in a small hormone rise. As far as getting pregnant again, if you ovulated and had unprotected sex it is possible. You need to be re-evaluated. Good luck. ...Read more

Pregnancy Loss (Definition)

A miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of a fetus before the 20th week of pregnancy. (Pregnancy losses after the 20th week are called preterm deliveries.) A miscarriage may also be called a "spontaneous abortion." This refers to naturally occurring events, not medical ...Read more

HCG was 155 in 2 days jumped to 462. If HCG is still rising normally is an ectopic still possible? Past history of 1 ectopic 4 miscarriages.

Yes: Because of your previous history of ectopic pregnancy, you have a higher risk for a repeat ectopic. The increased HCG is encouraging for a intrauterine pregnancy, but you are not out of the woods for ectopic pregnancy unless and until a gestational sac is seen inside the uterus by ultrasound. ...Read more

Possible ectopic: Stay in contact with your local OB/GYN. Have him/her review these values. Once they get to 1800, a gestational sac should be seen in your uterus. If not, you could have an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, and medical or surgical treatment will be necessary. If these values are not roughly doubling every 48 hours, this is also a sign of an ectopic pregnancy. ...Read more

Yes get ultrasound: By the time your HCG is 9000, there should be a visual heartbeat in the fetus seen on ultrasound. Once a heart beat is seen, chances of loss are significantly decreased. So get an ultrasound. ...Read more

Was told miscarriage no heartbeat, went in for a followup 1 week later and baby grew 1 week. Hcg still rising. Am I growing a dead baby?

Check hcg trend: Hcg is the hormone that is checked in pregnancy. With a normal pregnancy hcg will double every 2-3 days. Hcg changing less than that means the pregnancy is abnormal. You need to see an obstetrician to sort this out. ...Read more

I have slow rising hCG 70% in 2 days and my US at 6 weeks showed empty uterus and 3.7 mm endometrium. I bled for a day at 5 weeks. Miscarried?

Not yet...: ...able to tell. 70% rise in 2 days is normal, but it would be more reassuring to have seen a fetus at your ultrasound. The ultrasound should be repeated in about 1 week. ...Read more
