The doctor will review your B-HCG results with you once they are received. B-HCG hormone levels are expressed in milli international units per millilitre of blood.
B-HCG levels above or below the normal range can suggest several issues. Low levels of B-HCG above normal can indicate a blighted ovum or a possible miscarriage, an incorrect pregnancy date calculation, or an ectopic pregnancy. Your doctor may do a transvaginal ultrasound to determine the pregnancy status in such circumstances.
Multiple pregnancies, such as twins or triplets, are associated with high B-HCG levels.
Molar pregnancy, cancer of the pancreas, and lungs are associated with increased B-HCG levels.
