Question: Hello, I am not sure how far a long I am pregnant. My HCG level came back at 494 (first blood draw) and my progesterone was at 18.2, is this normal? I'm thinking I could be near 5 weeks or so. I know everyone is different but is this within normal range for that time span?

Thanks in advance

Brief Answer:
Repeat HCG test.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns.

There is a wide range of HCG values in early pregnancy. This HCG level does correspond to 4-5 weeks pregnancy. Ideally the progesterone level in early pregnancy should be more than 25. Therefore I suggest you to repeat HCG level after 48 hours from the last test. This will give a clear picture regarding pregnancy.

There is no need to do any ultrasound now.

I hope this is helpful.
If you have any further concerns, I will be happy to answer.
Best wishes,
Dr Rama

I had an HCG shot the 19th of July and then the IUI done the 20th. I had two follicles @ 20mm on on the left and one on the right.. I did however take a home pregnancy test to see how long it would take for the HCG to get out of my system. I took one on the 24th and it was still positive and then I took one the 27th and got a negative.. I go for my blood work on Aug 3rd.. Could I not be pregnant? Or is it that it is still to early to detect? My period is suppose to start around Aug 4th

I am on day four of taking HCG drops for weight loss and on the second day my eyes got really red. By the third day my eyelids were swollen and now on the fourth day my whole eye (both eyes) are swollen. The lids, the area below my eyes, and even the part between my nose and eyes. I called my doctor but he is booked until next week. Concerned because this is getting progressively worse. Any link to HCG? I have no known allergies to anything.
