    Default HCG Levels

    Hi,

    Is a HCG level of 46600 at 5weeks 2 days considered high? Does a drop in HCG always mean impending miscarriage?

    Thanks

    Samantha

    Hi
    Yes although the normal range for qHCG levels can vary enormously. It is normal for qHCG levels to increase to about 100000 i u at 10-11 weeks and then settle to 20000 i u for the rest of the pregnancy. This is often correlated with 'morning sickness'. Earlier in pregnancy, say at 7 weeks, a drop in the qHCG level is not reassuring!
    Cheers Dr Glenn Sterling
