Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have a question related to my sister. She has missed her period, and when we consulted her doctor, he suggested BHCG level. Initially, it was 226 and on repeating it was 246. She is feeling weak and suffering from some bleeding. She had her last period before two months.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com

It is a positive test for pregnancy. But, beta-hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) level doubles every 48 hours if everything is fine. In this case, hCG levels have increased, but not got doubled. Please repeat her beta-hCG and let me know the report. It could be either ectopic pregnancy or a failing pregnancy. Also, do USG pelvis (ultrasonography) to rule out ectopic pregnancy.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
