Brief Answer:
These symptoms can happen in chemical pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
You can have the symptoms that you have described due to a chemical pregnancy as all these symptoms are associated with a rise in the serum HCG levels.
In case of chemical pregnancy, there is mild rise of beta HCG levels and this rise is short lived. All these symptoms gradually decrease in 5-7 days.
Still it is best to confirm the rise in levels of HCG by serum HCG evaluation.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Brief Answer:
Yes. The symptoms can persist after the diagnosis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Yes the symptoms can continue even after the chemical pregnancy has been diagnosed. The symptoms will start decreasing after the serum HCG level decreases to undetectable levels.
Hope my answer is helpful.

Would you have these symptoms even after the hcg hormone levels are supposedly at 0?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Rakhi Tayal 13 minutes later
Brief Answer:
No.

Detailed Answer:
If the HCG hormone levels have reduced to 0, then the symptoms that you are having are not due to chemical pregnancy. It can be due to anxiety, acute gastritis, hiatus hernia or gastro esophageal reflux.
Do consult your physician for the specific treatment that you need.
Regards.
