I had a hcg quant 14 days after an IUI. The result was 13.14. 48 hours later it was 16.48. Is this a sign of inevitable miscarriage?

With hCG levels, it's hard to

With hCG levels, it's hard to say anything is inevitable. Generally, it is rarely good news what HCG levels drop. Slow-rising levels that do not double every two or three days in early pregnancy can be a sign of problems but can also still result in a normal pregnancy. Remember, though, that hCG levels can still rise slowly in normal pregnancies (about 85% of normal pregnancies have hCG levels that double every two to three days.)

In other words, it's too soon to tell.
