I am 6 weeks pregnant, no heart beat found on intravaginal ultrasound. Baby measures 7mm. HCG levels are good. Should I worry?

Follow up is needed. Normally, if an accurate measurement performed by a certified skilled sonographer is that the embryonic pole is greater than 5-6 mm but cardiac activity can not be detected, there is an increased probability of an "early pregnancy loss". HCG reflects trophoblastic/placental development but not embryonic or fetal condition. A repeat sonogram should help answer your question.

How high is your hcg level suppose to be during 6 weeks and 4 days pregnant. Also can you hear a heart beat by that time during a vaginal ultrasound?

Hormones vary. The BHCG hormone levels vary widely from person to person. An isolated BHCG level can not be used to determine fetal viability. A fetal heart beat should be visible on transvaginal sonogram by 6-7 weeks if the gestational dates are correct. Read more...
The increase in HCG. levels, rather than the absolute value, better reflects the health of a pregnancy. At six weeks, normal HCG levels can range from 1080 to 56,500, A heartbeat can be detected as early as 6 weeks gestation. It might not be heard, but rather seen as a very tiny image of a beating heart. Hope this answers your question. Dr. Anne.. Read more...

Pregnant 10 weeks and ultrasound measuring almost eight weeks hCG level is 9000 could not hear heart beat....Help me understan so scared that im misscarrying im not bleeding nor cramping

I . I am so sorry you were not given a proper explanation by your doctor. My advice is to contact the doctor's office right away and get answers until you understand everything completely. The reason i say this is because there are many other factors here that I have no way of knowing and i want you to get the right information. Soley based on what you stated in your post, it sounds like the pregnancy is not progressing. An HCG level of 9, 000 is extremely low and likely indicates the pregnancy is not viable thus no heart beat. Often times in this situation bleeding and cramping do not start right away. If you do not naturally miscarry then your doctor may do a procedure called d&c. Please see/call your doctor right away for follow up. Take care. 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?

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...

7 weeks 3 days doc said hCG levels going up very good nd saw heart beat but why when I wipe I see brown blood veey brown blood like old blood?

Bleeding/pregnancy. Bleeding in early pregnancy can be the first sign of a miscarriage although many pregnant women will experience bleeding and go on to have a normal baby. Often as the placenta is forming there is some bleeding that occurs that rarely threatens the life of the baby. Sometimes you can see this on ultrasound. Hormones rising and seeing the heartbeat are very good signs that thing will turn out ok! Read more...

Waiting for m/c as no fetal heart beat (6/8 w). Hcg levels on 01/27 @ 15, 000. On 01/29 @ 14, 000. Doc concerned drop is too slow. What could this mean?

Miscarriage . Sorry to hear about your miscarriage. If you do not want to wait to pass the tissue naturally then you have the option of surgery. A d and c is a very easy surgery that can be done for miscarriages. Read more...

My HCG levels dropped no fetal heart beat measuring 6 weeks am I miscarrying only Light spotting?

May be. The data you provided, falling HCG levels, is not a good sign. No heat beat at 6 weeks may be because it is too early. Fetal heart beat can be detected at about 6 weeks by vaginal ultrasound. At this stage, please wait and hope for the best, as there is not much that can be done. Read more...
