Are high hCG levels cause for concern?

Yes. Hcg levels can vary significantly in different pregnancies at different times of preg. Extremly high levels can indicate other disease processes like gestational trophoplastc disease. The value needs to be weighed in view of the whole clinical picture. This would be best evaluated by a board certified obgyn.

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...

Fri Hcg level 18000. Mon 28000. Wed 38000. Just turned 6wks on Tue. My Dr is concerned its not high enough, what do you think?

Concerned. In a normal early pregnancy the HCG level should have doubled between Friday and Monday. I'm sure that is why your doctor repeated it on Wednesday and it still did not rise as much as would be expected. I would want an ultrasound to be sure the baby is in your uterus and not in a tube and that everything looks ok. This could still be a normal pregnancy but I am concerned. Good luck. Read more...

My cycle is irregular. Would HCG levels usually be high enough to show up on an hpt by the time a pregnancy is far enough along to cause spotting?

After missed period. You should do the test 4-5 days after missed period. If your cycles are irregular then do the test about three weeks after what you think was day of fruitful sex. If the result is negative, repeat the test 4-5 days later. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. Read more...

Pregnant - lmp: oct 17/conception: nov 07. Bloodwork: dec 06 showed hCG level of 7, 801. This is on the lowest end of "normal." is this a cause for concern in any way?

Would need more info. It is more important to see if the HCG level is appropriately rising rather than what the actual number is. Additionally, it would be important to know what the ultrasound findings are since you would be 6 and 6/7 weeks pregnant at this point. I would suggest being seen by an ob/gyn. Read more...
Contact Your OB. I am not quite sure what your real concern is. You are pregnant. I am sure your OB would have expressed any concerns to you directly when you had your appointment. Read more...

Is 1772 high hCG level for 17 dpo?

Well.... . It is hard to make a judgment based on one isolated hormone level. BHCG levels vary widely from person to person. It's better to follow a trend by checking a second level a few days later. That gives you more information. Read more...
