What causes late rising HCG levels? I mean I was 6 weeks pregnant but hCG was 148 then it still going doubling normally every 48 hours. But only sac

Early: An HCG of 148 is very early. As long as it is rising like you describe, it's a good sign. You don't expect to see a sac until the HCG reaches 1500 to 2000, and you won't see an embryo for at least another 1-2 weeks, and then just a small blip on the screen. If you are 6 weeks, though, you would expect to see something. Perhaps you are not as far along as you think. ...Read more

What are the causes of a high hCG level?

Pregnancy or tumor: Hcg is the normal hormonal product of the placenta and so levels are high in pregnancy; a urine pregnancy test looks for hcg. However some tumors also produce hcg, so a high level in a man, or in a non-pregnant woman, strongly suggests a tumor that needs to be found and treated as soon as possible. ...Read more

Should I be concerned that my hCG levels are not rising very quickly?

Should I be concerned that my hCG levels are not rising very quickly?

Maybe: It depends on where you are in your pregnancy. Usually HCG levels double every 48 hours in the first few weeks but I have seen totally normal pregnancies in women where it didn't. Generally, our concern goes up if they are not going up by 66% in 48 hours but that doesn't necessarily mean anything horrible. Have patience and ask for an ultrasound once they get to 2000-3000. ...Read more

How fast do hcg levels rise after taking the hcg drops?

6weeks hcg levels still rising but no sign of baby. Also I've got 2rhogam shots in less than a week and lots of bleeding wat could this mean?

6weeks hcg levels still rising but no sign of baby. Also I've got 2rhogam shots in less than a week and lots of bleeding wat could this mean?

Unclear diagnoses: Rising betaHCG levels particularly in very early pregnancy, need to be correlated with accurate gestational age and sonographic findings in order to reach a clear diagnosis and answer your questions and concern. At 6 wks, there may be a small embryo which is not called a fetus or a baby. Your obstetrical team should be able to tell you what is going on and offer you some sense of direction. ...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

Can my progesterone levels being low can it cause hCG levels to not double?

Luteal phase defect: Low Progesterone levels may be associated with a cause of recurrent miscarriage called a luteal phase defect and is treatable with first trimester progesterone. Extremely low progesterones and abnormal HCG levels may well be an ectopic or tubal pregnancy. Not everyone's HCG doubles every 2-3 days like we make them think. A 20% rise every 2-3 days may be normal and eventually you plateau. ...Read more

My HCG levels are slowly rising but not doubling every 2 days. If I don't miscarry, will my baby have health issues due to chromosome problems?

My HCG levels are slowly rising but not doubling every 2 days. If I don't miscarry, will my baby have health issues due to chromosome problems?

No: Your HCG level should increase by at least 50% in 48 hours in a viable pregnancy. It doesn't always double in 48 hours. A rise greater than 50% but less than double doesn't mean that your baby has health issues or chromosome problems. Best wishes! ...Read more

At 5w4d pregnant my hCG level was 8, 250. At 7w3d pregnant my hCG level was 36, 350. Saw heartbeat 7w3d at 158. Concern: levels rising quick enough?

Yes: Once one see the heartbeat, the levels become less and less important. There is wide variation in the "normal" numbers of hcg. Thus, now that you've seen a heartbeat I wouldn't worry for one second that the pregnancy is progressing appropriately. Good luck. ...Read more
