    Hi All,

    I am new to the group and had few questions... So thought of posting it here..

    I had my period due on 05/11 but got BFP on 05/08 . My doc advised me to go for a blood test and my HCG level on 05/09 (I did test late evening) was 122 and on 05/12 ( early morning) was 244.. It doubled like almost 60hrs...My doc didnt sounded too happy abt numbers and informed it should have been a little higher which disappointed me a lot, and told to have early scan (5 weeks) and asked me to continue duphaston 10 mg (twice a day)... So wanted to know if anybody had these levels and had successful pregnancy and if 5 week is too early for a scan? Also, how long I should continue on Duphaston

    Any inputs would be greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like your doctor is a bit of a scare mongerer. I don't believe I've had my hcg levels tested & if I have nothing was said. With regards to an early scan - this will be transvaginal & I guess he's wanting to see if the sac is where it's supposed to be as you won't see much else. I had an early viability scan at 7+2. Good luck 🍀

    That is a little long to double which means there is a higher risk than normal that something is wrong but plenty of women have had similar results and healthy pregnancies. It did double and 60hrs which isnt that bad. I have read that 24 to 72 is normal. That early on closer to 24 would be more what the doctor was hoping to see but not everyone is the same.
