HcG levels after miscarriage pregnancy hormone

If you become pregnant, especially after infertility, you may "live and die" by your HcG numbers. Do you need more information about HcG levels in pregnancy and what the normal levels are? HcG stands for "human chorionic gonadotropin" - otherwise known as the pregnancy hormone. Women who have normal pregnancies may never deal with having HcG levels monitored (except to confirm a pregnancy). However, if you've undergone fertility treatments, you will probably have this test done after every cycle. There are a number of things which can affect HcG levels especially on home pregnancy tests. This is why most doctor's offices will use a blood test which is more sensitive and more accurate.

Some higher risk women get HcG levels monitored every 48 hours

Whenever I found out I was pregnant (even though most miscarried), I would have my HcG levels drawn immediately and every 48 hours thereafter to see what the numbers were doing.
For me, many times, the levels looked great and other times, they were sluggish and not doubling like they should. Unfortunately, I miscarried all of those pregnancies. Some doctors may recommend coming in periodically after a miscarriage to make sure that your HcG levels are falling, however, many times they don't. I should mention that on one of my miscarriages, my HcG levels kept rising and they thought I might have a molar pregnancy. This is where the pregnancy cells keep growing almost like a malignancy. as it turns out, I did not have a molar pregnancy, but I did go ahead and have a D & C to be on the safe side.Interestingly, when I got pregnant with my daughter, I decided not to have any bloodwork nor did I see a doctor until I was over 7 weeks. I didn't want a blow by blow accounting of my numbers. If I was going to miscarry, then so be it (and of course, that was the one pregnancy that made it). It makes me wonder why I put myself through all blood draws and the subsequent waiting and wondering for the results.

Some women with low HcG levels go on to have healthy pregnancies 

 I know a number of women who had HcG's drawn and they were told the results were low but they went on to have healthy pregnancies. Sometimes I think we just get too much information. If you are wondering what the normal HcG levels are in pregnancy, this chart should give you some guidelines which are followed by the medical community:
