HCG levels – 10 things you need to know

HCG levels – 10 things you need to know

 

HCG levels – let’s face it, they’re hard to understand. You know the basics: HCG is the pregnancy hormone. You may have done a home pregnancy test (HPT) and got a positive result. Then an HCG blood test. If the hormone’s pulsing through your body, those tests will confirm the good news.

Then the confusion starts. Are your HCG levels rising properly? Does a high score mean twins? A low score, disaster? Forget dodgy online calculators and vague explanations from friends. Here are the 10 key things you should know about your HCG levels.

1. You’re pregnant – it’s in the blood.

HCG is short for human chorionic gonadotropin. It’s produced by your placenta after conception. Most HPTs will pick up an HCG reading 11 or 12 days after the embryo enters the uterus. But a blood test can detect it earlier.

2. Double or quits?

A normal HCG level will roughly double every 48 to 72 hours, up to 6,000 mIU/ml. Roughly. Don’t obsess. It’s not an exact science. (Read more on ‘normal’ reference levels here.)

3. Look for rising numbers, not low ones.

A low initial HCG level doesn’t mean it’s all over. Fertility patients, in the unique position of knowing exactly when conception occurred, are the main worriers. They test early, so a low score is likely. But what matters is how HCG levels rise. 85 per cent of viable pregnancies double as they should.

4. Plan your scan. 

The best way to check on your pregnancy is to have an ultrasound scan. By 6.5 weeks, your HCG levels should be at least 2,000 mIU/ml – and probably higher. That’s when you can see, and hear, a fetal heartbeat in the scanning room. Reading too much into HCG scores is a slippery slope. Have that scan.

5. Low or high? It may not matter. 

Talking about ‘low’ and ‘high’ scores is, as mentioned, pretty meaningless. But, very generally, very low scores might suggest a blighted ovum, ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage. And very high numbers may indicate a molar pregnancy or, more likely, multiples. Don’t panic: those are worst-case scenarios. Most pregnancies don’t go there. Scan, scan, scan.

6. Watch that trigger.

If you’ve had IVF treatment with your own eggs, don’t test early. The synthetic HCG in your trigger shot (e.g. Ovitrelle and Pregnyl), used to induce ovulation, can stay in your blood for days. You may get a false positive. Not good.

Fertility patients are sometimes given double HCG shots. These can give even stronger false positives. As can being on the HCG diet. (By the way, the HCG diet is unproven nonsense.)

7. Fast numbers are best.

Even if your HCG levels rise quite slowly, by 50 or 60 per cent in the first few days, things may be okay. Anything less is a concern. Put it this way: if your HCG scores are roaring ahead, into four and five figures, there’s reason to be particularly optimistic.

8. HCG calculator? Tread carefully.

Avoid online HCG calculators. Most are inaccurate. None give you the personal care and attention a doctor can. Some just do a doubling calculation, regardless of where you are in your early pregnancy. Pointless. HCG levels can naturally slow down. Multiple pregnancies, and fertility treatment, can make HCG interpretation harder. Does that HCG calculator you found on Google take all this into account? Probably not.

9. Beware ectopics.

HCG levels can highlight an ectopic pregnancy. Act fast if your scores suggest you have one. 1 in 100 pregnancies are ectopic. If you’ve had fertility treatment, it’s higher. If your HCG levels are going down, your pregnancy has ended, or may be coming to an end. It could also mean a self-resolving ectopic. If your HCG increases by less than 66 per cent every 48 hours, an ectopic is possible, but by no means definite. Some ectopics show normal HCG levels to begin with, then tail off.

10. Normal means nothing.

Remember the golden rule. There’s no such thing as a ‘normal’ HCG score. Just make sure your doctor monitors you closely from the moment you get a positive result. Have two or three consecutive blood tests, 48 hours apart. And an early scan. And trust a medically-qualified human being, not the internet.

    We had 2- 5day blast transfers. My 1 beta was 140 but my progesterone was a little low– we are increasing my shots. What does this mean & what is the problems of low progesterone levels?

    My 30 year old daughter is on her second pregnancy. She had two miscarriages in the last two years around 40 or 45 days. On these occasions, the HCG levels did not show an increase. She started taking pregnancy treatment and now pregnancy was detected by blood test at the lab around 32 days. While the HCG levels showed encouraging increase in the next two or three tests, now in the fifth test there is increase but it is not doubling and the rate of increase is also going down. It is now 40 days and the count is around 1500. At the same time, she has been observing spotting and at times experiencing pain in the lower abdomen and in the legs. The treating doc however has advised to continue the blood work for a few more times every alternate day. We are skeptical due to the previous miscarriages. What does this men now? Her first girl child is six and a half years old.

    I had 2- 5 day blast transfers to increase our chances of success. My Beta HCG was tested on day 17 post transfer ( I was abroad on day 14) and it came back as 9,483. The clinic said this is perfect – no need to retest and wait for my scan. However looking this up on line this seems really high compared to other people and I am terrified there are more than 2 in there as there are 2 sets of boy/girl twins on my husbands side conceived naturally nieces/nephews and one of his brothers/sisters are also twins (it didn’t skip a generation!). Can you advise?

    Went to dr last week monday. Did scan and saw yolk sack that measured at 4weeks aswell as something else he didnt know what it was. Said it might be a twin pregnancy but could also be blood.. Did hcg quantitive test and came back at 374. Started to see bit of blood and some tissue. I went to the dr again yesterday about the bleeding which is not severe but there. She looked at my cervix and saw the mouth of womb is still closed but saw some blood still. I am not bleeding much like not even a panty liner full a day. She said it might be a threatening miscarriage. I went for another blood test today and results for hcg came back at 2000. Should i be concerned??

    Put myself on strict bed rest with legs up

      I wouldn’t say spotting is always bad. I was ten weeks when I started spotting and was super concerned. But my levels kept increasing and the pregnancy went great. I didn’t bleed after that again.

      Are you saying your wife’s blood test showed HCG of 5 ? My daughter got her results today and less than 1 percent. Devastating. We don’t know why.

    Hi everyone i have tried Ivf twice it wasn’t a success on both occasions, my first hcg test was negative it was 0.5 the second attempt the hcg test was also negative was 1.5 both of them I tried on day 08 after the embryo transfer. My husband advised me to do another test after 48 hours maybe it will pick it up but i just lost hope at all. Its so emotionally draining.

    Hello, my first HCG was 4 days ago at 94 that confirmed pregnancy. I tested again today & it is 222 so the number is still lower than my dr would like. I have to go back in 2 days for another blood draw. I am so concerned as I had a previous miscarriage. What would be your insight on the number being low.
    Thanks

    Be encouraged! Stay positive, support each other and just seek information. My wife and I are on this IVF journey that actually started with a myomectomy last October. We started IVF in February and after egg retrieval and a bout with OHSS. So our transfer was on June 5th. On June 13th we had our Beta test and our results were “21”. My wife was in full panic mode. The nurse at our IVF clinic was less than encouraging and we lost optimism. I did research and found that no one is sure when the embryo implants so low Beta reading aren’t uncommon so, that first result can be low based on how many days in that 3-4 widow are the transfer did the embryo implant. Go figure why no one tells you that at the IVF clinic? Two days later we have the 2nd blood draw and our numbers were at 59. Three days later we were at 325. Then three day after that we hit 10,050. So don’t be dismayed no matter what these numbers are. My research revealed that healthy babies can be successfully delivered from a high range 25,700 – 288,000. So don’t let the numbers consume you they are guidelines with astounding variances. I wish you all positive results on your journey!

      I had my first IVF done on 8th June and tested positive with HCG 82 on 23rd. My fellow IVF girl tested positive on the next day with HCG at 515.

      I was devastated with negative thoughts.

      My second HCG two days after, came at 426.
      I am looking forward to my first scan tomorrow.

      Hoping for the best 🙂

    Can anyone give me some positive information after a first failed FET? I am 29 and healthy but my husband and I have “unexplained infertility” for the last 6 years. We did our egg retrieval on July 20th and ended up with 5 genetically tested embryos. Our FET was on October 3rd (we only transferred 1 embryo) and I just did my blood test yesterday on day 12 and my HCG was only 2 which they said was essentially negative. I go back tomorrow to confirm. Has anyone gone through this and went straight into a second attempt and gotten a positive? Was there anything you did differently? My doctor suggests 1 embryo to transfer and I’m getting nervous, as we only have 4 more left to transfer

      We did 2 retrieval cycles and only got 3 genetically good embryos. We transferrred 1 two years ago and it failed. Then this year we did an ERA and it moved my transfer date 2 days later than it was the first time and I just got a day 5 genetically sound ET on 10/25/18 and they drew my HCG yesterday and it was 52!!!

      Hi Chelsey. I did just that! I transferred 9/21 with a 5 day blast and unfortunately it didn’t take so I went right back for another cycle. Transferred 1 5day 10/29 and got a BFP with hcg levels at 119 on 10 days post transfer!

      Good luck!!

    We had 5 day ET that was genetically good on 10/25 and my HCG was draw. Yesterday (day 7) and is 52. One reading (like this) means nothing unfortunately. So it will be done again on day 10 and it should have doubled by then. Your looking for a steady doubling 72 hrs later. I know it’s so hard to wait and everyone’s levels are so different on the same day so keep the faith!! I will keep you updated!!

    I had a 5 day blast transfer. I transferred 2 bc I am 39. On day 8 I was at 292 hgc. That seems high. Could something be wrong if it is too high? This is my first pregnancy.

    I recently did my first ivf transfer on 12/10 my first blood test was on the 12/19 my numbers were 83 , they respected on the 21 they were at 116 and then again on 12/24 they are 223. I’ve had the worst Christmas and regretting the new year as I go for my ultrasound on 1/4 to figure out if it’s eptopic. I have no pains , no blood no nothing. I’ve been crying non stop and my back is so bruised from the shots now every time my husband gives them to me I bleed. I don’t know what to do

    We transferred two embryos (both 4AB) on Jan 31 2022. The HCG levels were 232 IU/L and 470 IU/L on day 9 and day 11 post FET, respectively. II think the HCL level is high. Does it mean it might be twins? Some sources were saying it could be due to down syndrome! Is this true?

    Hi I took a pregnancy test about a month and 3 weeks after my period. It came back positive got loads done it was at 50 went for a scan the next day and nothing was detected following day had another test came back positive did bloods again on the same day again hcg came back at 300 I have another scan in 4 days because my first hcg was low as I was expecting to be around 6 weeks anyway long story short the lady who did my scan said I am possibly really early 1-2 weeks my doctor seemed to think so aswell. So being around 1-2 weeks what does the second hcg levels suggest ? I’m kind of confused oh I forgot to mention that 5 days ago I was a bit wet and had a light small amount of blood and for the next 4 days I did not bleed again until today which was a light pinky colour I will see doctor again tmrw to get another blood test to see what my hcg levels are at but yes any ideas I have had four children and this has never happened before p.s I am unvaxd.

    Hi,
    I went through my first FET (2, top quality 4AA, not sure 3-day or 5-day) on Jun-10-22 and after the 2ww, had the blood test on Jun-24-22. Blood was drawn and my doctor also scanned (transvaginal) and said that I’ve conceived. One looked prominent and the other one she said may come up later, looked like twins. That night, got my bhcg and it was 595. I next have to visit doctor for a scan on July-15-22. I am anxious to know if everything is alright and fine and normal as my next appointment is only after 2 more weeks.
    Please suggest.
