hCG levels not rising properly

Hi there
I had a quantitative blood test done 7 days ago which gave a reading of 174. I did a further test yesterday which gave a result of 200. From all that I' ve read, this does not look good at all - can I assume that the pregnancy has stopped progressing? Should I go for further check-ups to determine the next steps or do I just let my body do what it needs to? We have been trying to fall pregnant for around 5 months now and since going off the pill then I have not had a proper period.

You are right that this does not look good. You should see your gynaecologist again to determine what the next step should be.

Sorry to say this but it' s really not a good sign. You' ll have to go see a gynae. you may need a D& C.
