    Default Early HCG & progesterone levels

    Hello ladies,

    So over the past few weeks I have read and spoken to people to compare levels in early pregnancy.

    I have spoken to a few ladies who in fact had lower than usual levels but their levels were doubling just fine and docs told them that it was a failing pregnancy or possible ectopic and their pregnancies turned out just fine.

    So I thought it would be nice for everyone to share their story!

    17dpo (4w3d) HCG 126 progester 11.3
    20dpo (4w6d) HCG 500 prog 9.3
    24dpo (5w3d) waiting for bloods tomoz I had bleeding for two days that ended yesterday so it could be all over for me. I also have an issue with progesterone so I am on pessaries.

    Updated at 24dpo (5w3d) hcg back down to 100 but prog went up so I guess pessaries did do something!

    I'm sorry but for me, the low hcg early pregnancies all ended badly for me.

    The ectopic started in the 300s at 5 weeks and failed to double plus I had bleeding which is why they suspected an ectopic. Which it turned out to be.

    The incomplete MC started in the 700s at 5 weeks and again failed to double, only going up by 100 or so at 2 days.

    In between these I had a missed MC and that had a 30000 hcg at 5 -6 weeks.

    HTH

    Well this pregnancy has shown that hcg numbers does not always mean a lot!
    I have proof of print outs of my numbers if noone believes me either lol

    First hcg after first BFP on a FRER was just a 3! Yep a 3, don't ask me how that is possible.. dr said I must have miscarried.

    48 hrs later and the number had more than tripled to early 20's, again told that because it was SO low, it was most likely ectopic.

    Another 48 hrs later and it had more than doubled to the low 100's. Still, told it was not a good outcome.

    I am now 15 week pregnant and baby is doing fine!

    What is important is that the numbers are at least doubling or close to, every 48 hrs.

    48 hrs later - had more than tripled to early 20's.
    Another 48 hrs later - had more than doubled to the low 100's.

    Hi ladies, you can add me to the list but i don't know my hcg number, just my progesterone number.

    So i was told my hcg was above average but my progesterone was 21.1 (after2ww). So my pessaries were doubled. Nurse said progesterone should be around 30 at this point, but its nothing to worry about.. but naturaally i am worried
