Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   how can i help you
Doctor :   are you there
User :   my girlfriend went to the doctor jan 30th and her hcg level for pregnancy was 0000 now she went to the doctor and her hcg level is only 6103 does that mean her level has peaked and she is really 17 to 24 weeks
Doctor :   I have to close this window since there is no response from your side, please get back to us if you need further medical advice.
Doctor :   when was last menstrual periods?
User :   she had one after we found out she was pregnant so its hard to tell by that
Doctor :   did she undergo ultrasound scanning
User :   when the hcg level was 0000 they said she was 7 weeks, but now that its been 2 months later her hcg lvl is 6103 they still think shes 7 weeks
Doctor :   A normal pregnancy may have low hCG levels and result in a perfectly healthy baby.
User :   no she has not had an ultrasound yet
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   results from an ultrasound after 5 - 6 weeks gestation are much more accurate than using hCG numbers

Doctor :   it reaches peak in 9-12 weeks
User :   ok thank you
