Is something wrong? HCG question

I am currently 18 dpo. On 11 dpo my hcg was 52, then at 12 dpo it was 95, then on 14 dpo it went up to 217. All of these seem to be more than doubling but still normal. Today at 18 dpo my hcg is 5739? In one week? I am only 4 weeks and two days pregnant and the paperwork I have says that my hcg is too high. Anyone else this high?? I realize that high is better then low but I have also read that ectopic and molar pregnancy can cause high hcg levels. Is this true? My partner and I also had intercourse this weekend and afterwards I had strong cramps, no pain during though. Anyone ever had this so early? I did not have any bleeding though. Thank you so much for any input :) Best wishes to all of you.

  • There are tons of reasons for high hcg. My doctor told me it could mean a problem, it could mean multiples, or it could just be high for no apparent reason. Mine high hcg turned out to be twins. Good luck!
