    Default Extremely high HCG at 5 weeks

    Hi guys, just wondering if anyone has seen or heard anything similar to my story.
    Based on my own dates, I think I'm 6 weeks today (I know when we DTD), my blood test yesterday came back at 240,000!! Dr told me to go in for ultrasound as based on hcg I'm 8-9 week (which I knew wasn't the case). External ultrasound today showed no molar pregnancy (which i was worried about) but sac measured less than 5 weeks. We could see a yolk sac only.
    My questions are;
    Anyone else had super high HCG results early on and have a successful pregnancy or a loss?
    Has anyone measured less than 5 weeks when you think you're around 6 weeks?
    FYI - I have lean pcos, but my cycle is only around 30-32 days.

    UPDATE; just updating this incase anyone comes along it. Dr was reading my results from last LAST pregnancy! Bloody idiot! My hcg was actually 11,500 at 6 weeks

    It might be too early to detect a molar pregnancy at six weeks. You should have monitoring done on your HCG levels and serial scans every 7-10 days. The placenta hasn’t formed at 6 weeks so the usual sonographic signs would not be able to be seen. Good luck

    Did they give you an internal ultrasound? At 6 weeks, an internal may have been able to detect a fetal pole more effectively?
