Brief Answer: IMPENDING MISCARRIAGE LIKELY. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. Between 21st November and 3rd December ( 13 days ), your B HCG level hardly XXXXXXX at all. This is most highly suggestive of a failed pregnancy ( impending miscarriage ). What level maturity of embryo had been transferred in your case ? Also please provide me your LMP ( last menstrual period ). At 6 weeks of pregnancy, a vaginal ultrasound scan should show a gestational sac with an embryo showing a definitive heartbeat. Has an ultrasound scan been done in your case ? Going by the information provided, just based on the HCG levels, it is indicative of a failed pregnancy, which would require termination. All the best. Please feel free to ask for further clarifications.
