Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is also known as pregnancy hormone. This hormone is present only at the time of pregnancy. In the initial stage of pregnancy HCG hormone doubles itself at every 48 to 72 hours. Even though HCG level must considerably rise during pregnancy but one cannot rely on its count.

 

Low hCG level should be taken as warning indication for blighted ovum, possible miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, whereas high level of HCG indicate molar or multiple pregnancy. Low hCG level can be worked upon. But it is important to consult your doctor as level of hCG is a crucial factor in pregnancy.

 

This hormone keeps on increasing in the first trimester of pregnancy. All you require is to take your prenatal vitamins on time and make sure that your pregnancy progresses in a smooth manner.

 

Your doctor may prescribe you medications if your hCG level is not up to optimum level. Take medication as and when prescribed by your doctor. Remember that level of Human chorionic gonadotropin is delicately balanced so never try to increase it on your own. Don’t try any product that claim to increase hCG as it can cause medical complications.

 

According to the American Pregnancy Association, when the hCG level reaches 1800 to 2000 mIU/ml a gestation sac becomes visible in uterus. Absence of uterine sac is indication of tubal pregnancy. While HCG level is important, ultrasound at the 5th or 6th weeks of pregnancy is a better predictor of normal pregnancy.

 

According to a study, in normal pregnancy hCG level could increase as little as 53% even in two days. Even though, slow rising hCG levels are not common for a normal pregnancies but they are not even alarming bell for all the pregnant women.
