  • That being said, the American Pregnancy Association cites the following chart as normal ranges of hCG for the number of weeks after the woman’s last menstrual period:



    • 3 weeks: 5 - 50 mIU/ml

    • 4 weeks: 5 - 426 mIU/ml

    • 5 weeks: 18 - 7,340 mIU/ml

    • 6 weeks: 1,080 - 56,500 mIU/ml

    • 7 - 8 weeks: 7, 650 - 229,000 mIU/ml

    • 9 - 12 weeks: 25,700 - 288,000 mIU/ml

    • 13 - 16 weeks: 13,300 - 254,000 mIU/ml

    • 17 - 24 weeks: 4,060 - 165,400 mIU/ml

    • 25 - 40 weeks: 3,640 - 117,000 mIU/ml

    • Non-pregnant women: <5.0 mIU/ml

    • Postmenopausal women: <9.5 mIU/ml

  • I found the above chart online. According to the chart your numbers are pretty close to the six week mark so you may just be further along than you thought. I always test positive early, but I only have a 23 day cycle. I do believe that my levels were around 11,000 at 5 weeks too.

    The ultrasound will tell you more. But just so you know that HCG levels are supposed to double every 3 days so the jump is normal and expected. And Congrats!
