Question by  Wayne (129)

Would an ectopic pregnancy cause my HCG level to rise?

I am not sure if it counts as a real pregnancy.


Answer by  LauraLS (195)

In an ectopic pregnancy, the embryo has implanted anywhere other than the uterus. HCG levels will rise slower than normal or plateau. Ectopic pregnancies are dangerous and need the treatment of an OB/GYN.

Yes it can. Your body views an ectopic pregnancy much the same as a real pregnancy and therefore it can make your hormone levels increase.


Answer by  Nisa (192)

An ectopic pregnancy would cause your HCG levels to rise as an egg has been fertilized even though it implants incorrectly.


Answer by  Ali41 (1593)

In an ectopic pregnancy, generally women experience even higher than normal amounts of HCG during the early weeks. This does not mean if you have high HCG you definately have an ectopic pregnancy.
