HCG Levels more than doubled in 72 hours
HI Gynae Doc

I had a HCG level test on wednesday that read 2317, I had another test done this morning 72 hours later and it read 8043.
Is this normal? I know the levels are supposed to double but mine have more than trippled.
I am approximatly 5 weeks, last period was on the 28 January 2007

It is within normal limits. I guess there is a slightly higher chance that this could be twins.
