My pregnancy levels are very low - what does this mean?

Will the pregnancy last?


Answer by  Cali2307 (1337)

Usually it means that your HCG levels are low, and HCG is a hormone that needs to increase steadily in early pregnancy to support the growing embryo. This does not necessarily mean that the pregnancy is not viable. Sometimes there are medications, such as progesterone, that you can take to help normalize your hormones. Consult with your doctor.

What pregnancy levels are you talking about? If you are refering to your blood pressure its a good thing that its low. If you are refering to your progesterone levels its a bad thing that they are low. Viable pregnancies require increasing progesterone levels throughout the pregnancy.

By pregnancy levels, I assume you mean HCG. HCG is the hormone that indicates pregnancy. The level of HCG is not as important as your doubling time. A healthy pregnacy will generally double HCG levels in 48 hours.

A pregnancy with low hcg can last, depending on how far along you are. As your pregnancy progresses, that hormone will grow exponentially; however, early on the levels can be lower. If your levels go down, your doctor may be able to give you something to help keep them up if you have a healthy embryo.

Your HCG levels are going to vary depending on how far along you are in the pregnancy. In early pregnancy, the first few weeks your level will only be in the high 20's. however it should double every 48 hours.

It is very possible that the pregnancy will last. Some women just don't get levels of HCG as other women do, especially in early pregnancy. Your levels should go up.
