HCG is way too high is it twins or ectopic pregnacy so scared.


HCG is too high and dr cant find the heart beat. I had a Labs done to see if the HCG is going up and they are it is 7431. My question is my dr thinks it is too much so she thinks either I am carring twins or may be it is ectopic. I have scan tomorrow to rule out the ectopic. I am so scared. please prayer for me.

Don't quote me on this but I don't think ectopic can get that high and if it did you would get alot of pain due to rupture in your tube. It could just be that its hiding. Its really early and you may only be around 5 weeks. I was 7831 when I was 5 weeks and it's normal to only see a gestational sac at that time. Good luck and keep us posted.

My levels were wayyyy higher than that and they didnt see a HB on my baby until 6 weeks 2 days. My levels were over 30,000 at your point. And theres only one baby in there! So don't worry yet. High levels are usually good!

my level at what I thought was 5w5d was 45, 483...come to find out at my 7w3d ultrasound, I was measuring almost a week ahead, so really I was 6w2d and my levels were +45,000...everything was great! I don't feel like +7000 is very high at all, just perfect. How far a long were you when you had your blood drawn? I hope tomorrow goes well!

With all due respect but as the ladies before me have said that HCG doesn't get that high with a ectopic. Your doctor is not a very good one to put such a thing in your head without any confirmation! There should be some sort of ethical rules that call for physicans to have some facts before terrifying their patients. I was once told I most likely had hepatitis, before they even did a hep panel, basing their crackerjack wisdom on the fact that my liver level was a bit high. I cried and was horrified at the young age of 19 for two weeks needless to say....my hep panel came back normal and I was having recurring gallbladder issues. Get another Doctor!
