Are beta-hCG values equal in a multiple pregnancy?

By Andrea Rodrigo B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 03/07/2022

No, when there is a multiple pregnancy, beta hCG values are higher. Therefore, there may also be greater symptomatology (nausea, malaise, or drowsiness) during the first trimester of pregnancy.

While a value of 200 mIU/ml would be normal at 2-3 weeks in a singleton pregnancy, in a multiple pregnancy we can find values of around 600 mIU/ml or more in the 14 days after embryo transfer.
