hCG levels

Okay, so I've looked at the chart and it's such a variance that you can't really tell from that where you are actually at in your pregnancy. My hCG level on the 9th was around 87,500. At that time I was estimated to be anywhere between 7 and 9 weeks (due to AF twice that month). Does anyone know how to calculate this a little more accurate? I only got the result because I had an appointment with a different doctor on Monday and he pulled up my test results (they both use the same lab). I won't see my OB for another few weeks.

Here's the chart and as you can see it's not really easy to pin-point my level.

  • 3 weeks LMP: 5 - 50 mIU/ml
  • 4 weeks LMP: 5 - 426 mIU/ml
  • 5 weeks LMP: 18 - 7,340 mIU/ml
  • 6 weeks LMP: 1,080 - 56,500 mIU/ml
  • 7 - 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 - 229,000 mIU/ml
  • 9 - 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 - 288,000 mIU/ml
  • 13 - 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 - 254,000 mIU/ml
  • 17 - 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 - 165,400 mIU/ml
  • 25 - 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 - 117,000 mIU/ml
  • Non-pregnant females: <5.0 mIU/ml
  • Postmenopausal females: <9.5 mIU/ml
  • baby development pregnancy calendar

    It is not a matter of calculating the results.  Like you said the range is so broad.  The point with HCG levels is that they are continuing to go up with each lab draw.  They will peek usually between 9-12 weeks, but until then should double every 48-72 hours.

    She's right, that's just how it is!
