  • O think low is a relative term. How low? My bff had a slightly lower than normal level and had periods every month for five months. That baby is now a 6'5"250 pound lineman at college. Good luck

  • Has your doctor talked to you about progesterone supplementation? I'm not saying this to scare you, but I've lost four pregnancies, and with at least three of them, low HCG was the problem. If I get pregnant again, my doctor wants to use progesterone supplements to try and change the outcome. The doctor says that with supplementation, it's very likely I could carry another pregnancy to term. Sometimes supplementation only goes to ten or twelve weeks when the placenta starts making progesterone, but other times it continues for most or all of the pregnancy. Speak to your obstetrician or gynecologist about this as soon as you possibly can, and best of luck.

  • Did they give you an ultrasound at the ER? I ask because the possible causes of low HCG include ectopic pregnancy and that is the kind of thing you need to know immediately...

  • Yes. My best friend. Her levels were so low she failed several urine and blood tests. They finally did an ultrasound and she was 12 weeks and 4 days. I sent you a link in another question. Google is your friend.
