    Dear Staff..thanks for your concern..i just need to ask one thing that can i go for lab test for hcg right after 48 hrs from my previous test or can i delay the time so that the result will be more clear... plz reply urgently.

    Hi Marinarayan -

    From what I have read the usual time between hCG tests is 2 -3 days and the levels should double.

    Best wishes for good results and a relaxing, worry-free weekend,

    At this point it is unclear if you could be having a m/c or not. With your value starting out at 931 it would be very unlikely for them to see anything on ultrasound. When I had my m/c the er told me that they usually don't see much if anything at all until atleast 1200. Your hcg should double every 48-72 hours at this point (though it does sometimes go a little higher or little lower which can be normal as well). At this point unfortunately its a waiting game until you get the next blood work and results. Best wishes.
    marinarayan1 replied to hgreenwood7058's response: i received my 2nd hcg test result and it was 132..means i said that nothing is to b worried about..all is fine but i need another ultrasound after a week...i need to ask that what care should i take take now to prevent next miscarriage? what precautions hould i take after my miscarriage? and as i hav rh negative blood roup so do i need to get the injection before i plan to have a baby bcoz in my last baby that injection was given to me in 7th month...plz suggest...

    I am sorry to hear about the miscarriage. It is very hard. Unfortunately most miscarriages you can't do anything to prevent them. Often tmes it is due to a chromosomal defect and your body sees that so it does not allow the pregnancy to continue. It is good that they are doing an extra u/s because they can then see that everything has been emptied out of your uterus (if not everything is emptied then it can cause infection). Take prenatals if you aren't as well. I would ask the doctor as to when you can start trying again. Some providers will say wait one cycle, some say 3 and some say go ahead and start trying. Your cycle may be late this time around due to the m/c (some it goes right back to normal around 4 weeks while others it takes quite a bit longer it took me 11 weeks to get my period the 1st time after m/c). Definately remind Dr. about the rh negative as well. Some will give a shot now and some don't. Just depends on provider. And then they sometimes do it later on. I would also recommend the trying to conceive after loss board when you start trying again because they are a great group of gals who are all trying to get pregnant again after m/c and they a great support system for everyone there. That is where I spent my time after I m/c and was trying to conceive and it was very helpful because they have been in the same situation so they understand. Best wishes.
