Transvaginal Ultrasound H Cg Levels
You def need f/u: You should definitely follow that HCG level within 48-72 hours and be followed by an ob/gyn. Usually by 1500-2000 hcg, if the pregnancy is in the uterus, we should be able to see it. One possible explanation may be a pregnancy outside of the uterus, something called ectopic pregnancy. It is super important that you follow up with your doctor. ...Read more
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
My hcg level is 2417, when transvaginal ultrasound done there was no gestational sac or yolk sac. Is this common or should I be worried?
Hcg level on 4/14 was 1299 & on 4/16 is 1288. Transvaginal ultrasound on 4/14 showed an irregularly shaped fluid collection in my uterus. Miscarriage?
Anything I could do/take to lower my hCG levels? 3 transvaginal ultrasounds and 3 blood-tests show mc but dr. Won't treat, just wants more tests.
Not really: There is nothing you can do to lower your HCG level. If your levels are very low (. ...Read more
LMP is on 25/1/2016 +ve HPT hcg level is rising very slowly like 73, 351, 968, 1240 at 1st vaginal ultrasound seen nothing at 7wks except small cyst?
Went for an 8 week vaginal ultrasound after spotting doctor found no baby in sac my hCG levels were 21000 I will be going back in three days to re tes?
Follow up imperative: You have either had a complete miscarriage, or more seriously an ectopic pregnancy. You need to follow-up with your doctor without fail. He/she will re-check b-hcg level, and probably order another ultrasound. With your b-hcg levels that high, a fetus should be seen in the uterus. Consultation with your ob/gyn is mandatory. Go to er for any abdominal pain, or significant vaginal bleeding. ...Read more
At 8weeks the doctor did an abdominal ultrasound and couldn't find the baby. He send me to do a vaginal one in 2 days I am scared hCG level 41, 000?
Calm Down!: The HCG level you give could be seen in a 6 wk pregnancy. Would be hard to see with abdominal sono. Molar pregnancies tend to have higher HCG values. Get the vaginal sono and find out for sure. If there was a problem then it is best to get it over with earlier than later. Hope things work out for you! ...Read more
6 weeks 2days per transvaginal ultrasound today. Progestrone week and half ago was 14.6. Hcg today 16k.Gest. Sac, yolk sac, cr embro flicker? No hb.?
Concerning: You should see a heartbeat at an HCG of 16k. Repeat the HCG and ultrasound in 36-48 hours for appropriate rise and re-attempt at seeing cardiac activity. If the HCG is not rising appropriately, then unfortunately it's a miscarriage. ...Read more
Will a transvaginal ultrasound only work if hcg is present? I had a transvaginal at 12 but nothing not sure if it was because I had no hcg

I found out I was pregnant last week measuring 5-6 weeks in a transvaginal ultrasound. We saw a sac and a yolk but no baby. Is this normal? Hcg levels
Not uncommon: It's not uncommon to not be able to identify the fetal pole on a 5-6 week US. This is why we usually wait a little longer before doing any ultrasounds. Good thing is you know your pregnancy is in the right place, and it may just take a few weeks to see it well on. Try to relax and just be. There's nothing to be done for the fetus at this point either way, so just take good care of yourself :-) ...Read more
I'm supposed to be 7 weeks pregnant. My hCG levels is 1500. But nothing in my transvaginal ultrasound?
See below: Your dates might be off. It is most common to start seeing things on ultrasound after your HCG gets to 1800-2000. If you truly are 7 weeks that number would be low. Hopefully it is being repeated soon! ...Read more
Been spotting brown blood since vag ultrasound 4 days ago. Hcg levels went from 600 to 504. Am I loosing my baby?
Ultrasound said I was 6 weeks with a yolk sac however my blood work showed hcg levels at only 894 and that put me at 5 weeks difference why is that?
Too early to tell: Additional information on the accurate measurements of your mean gestational sac diameter and the size of your yolk sac performed by a skilled certified sonographer and the dates is needed. HCG levels reflect trophoblastic growth; they can vary greatly and may unfortunately be inaccurate /unreliable. A repeat repeat blood betaHCG test and a repeat sonogram may offer you an answer to your question. ...Read more
Ultrasound tech couldn't confirm a yolk sac just said possibly yolk sac, my hcg levels are at 8700. I don't feel bad, but I don't feel preg anymore?
Get repeat U/S: U/S is the test in medicine that is most operator-dependent. The fact that the HCG is elevated says that there are cells that are still viable in a placental structure. I would get a repeat U/S by the most experienced person in your area. Good luck! ...Read more
My hCG levels on 2/26 were 49486.0 and they were 25058.0 on 3/7. Ultrasound is 6 weeks and no heartbeat. What are my chances of having a miscarriage?
Hcg levels: Sometimes nothing is present until 3000plus. When a pregnancy shows up on Ultrasound varies. I tend to repeat levels to see if rising appropriately (at least 15-20%) in 3 days is ok and most of my early pregnancies I do a progesterone level. Most ectopic or non viable pregnancies will quickly drop progesterone below 2. See if your doc will order another hcg and progesterone or repeat US 1 wk. ...Read more

An ultrasound showed a small gas sac but my HCG levels were only 348. Is it possible to see a sac already at 4+5?
Early pregnancy: It is possible to see a gestational sac at 4 weeks and 5 days. That HCG level does not match the ultrasound findings, and your doctor should be following both closely. Good luck. ...Read more
My hCG levels was 600 then 2 days later it was 1626. I had an ultrasound today and was told they didn't see a fetal pole. Is this normal?
Yes: That information sounds great. Your HCG increased perfectly. Normal not to see a pole at this point. By 2000 should see a sac in uterus. ...Read more

If your Beta: Is 2700 should see a sac in the uterus whether it is viable or not, and they should have done a Progesterone level, you are at risk you need close followup by your gyn or go to the er. ...Read more
Ultrasound at 5w and 2d showed only gestational sac. No yolk sac or baby. Dr said might be too early to see. But hCG level came back next day at 15, 209. Which do you go by? Hcg level or weeks?
Can be both: I agree with your doctor in that it may definitely be too early to see the baby, but encouraged there is at least a gestational sac being seen. Your HCG level is a little more elevated than expected but there can be a range of "normal" among women in early pregnancy. We generally take both the HCG level and the ultrasound to base judgements and decisions on. Hopefully by 8 weeks you will hear heart ...Read more
I've had very light bleeding within the past 3 days & I'm 5wks preg. My hCG levels are increasing and some blood was found in the ultrasound. Should I worry about bleeding not accompanied my cramps?
Close watching: It is probably ok, and there really is nothing that can be done to prevent a miscarriage if it is about to happen. But with increasing HCG levels, and only very light spotting, I would think this more placental implantation. ...Read more
I just had my first ultrasound yesterday. The doctors are saying I am 7 weeks today. I think I am 5 weeks today based on the information on the calendar. No fetal pole was seen. I have had realAply lite brown blood when I wipe. My Hcg level is 22, 203 and
Repeat tests 1 week: I'm sorry you're dealing with this uncertainty. If you have a repeat ultrasound and hcg in a week, the doctor should be able to give you a much better idea of what's going on. If the bleeding or cramping becomes worse before that, please call your doctor or go to the ER to be evaluated. ...Read more

Non viable pregnancy: In a viable pregnancy hcg concentrations typically double every 48 hours. If this is not the case, and if moreover hog concentrations start to drop again, then there is concern for an impending miscarriage. If more than one sac is seen in early pregnancy on ultrasound this can indicate that there is a twin pregnancy. ...Read more
An ultrasound is an imaging study in which a probe emits and receives sound waves which rebound off of internal organs in order to visualize them. For a transvaginal ultrasound a specially designed probe is lubricated and placed into the vagina in order to better ...Read more
