hcg levels

Human chorionic gonadotropin

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), is a pregnancy related hormone and in 85% of normal pregnancies, the hCG level will double every 48 - 72 hours. As you get further along in pregnancy and the hCG level gets higher, the time it takes to double hCG can increase to about every 96 hours.

Keep in mind that fertility medication can affect your hCG levels.

Hi, I am in my first

Hi, I am in my first pregnancy. on Jan 28th I had a IUI, with hCG injections and clomid. On February 11th I had my BPT (I think the Beta) and was positive with a normal level of HCG. On February 13th I had another test of blood, I my doctor call very worried about the high increase of the hCG level (that I think was more than double or normal), and say to me that maybe I will have a very difficult pregnancy for the hCG levels. Tomorrow I will have another Blood test. What should expect? May be twins? Or do you think other explanation? Thanks for the feed back!
