A woman is carrying an embryo, but not enough hCG is getting into her system. Propose a possible treatment that might allow the embryo to be saved.



Step 1

Low hCG levels can cause a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy but unfortunately cannot be ``really" treated. However, some doctors prescribed meditations to help you naturally overcome this phenomenon. Proper diet such as eating lean meat, fruits, and non-starchy vegetables can help you regain back the normal level of hCG, and lastly more rest and replenishment for your energy.

Brad's mother has just learned that she is pregnant! Brad is very excited that he will soon become a big brother. However, he wants to know when his new sibling will arrive and decides to do some research. On the Internet, he finds the following article: Hormone Levels for Pregnant Women. When a woman becomes pregnant, the hormone HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is produced to enable the baby to develop. During the first few weeks of pregnancy, the level of HCG hormone grows exponentially, starting with the day the embryo is implanted in the womb. However, the rate of growth varies with each pregnancy. Therefore, doctors cannot use just a single test to determine how long a woman has been pregnant. They must test the levels over time. Commonly, the HCG levels are measured two days apart to look for this rate of growth. Brad 's mother says she was tested for HCG during her last two doctor visits . On March 21, her HCG level was 200 mIU/ml (milli-international units per milliliter). Two days later, her HCG level was 392 mIU/ml. a. Assuming that the model for HCG levels is of the form y=abxy = a b ^ { x } find an equation that models the growth of HCG for Brad's mother 's pregnancy. b. Assuming that Brad's mother's level of HCG on the day of implantation was 5 mIU/ml, on what day did the baby most likely become implanted? How many days after implantation was his mother's first doctor visit? c. Brad learned that a baby is born approximately 37 weeks after implantation. When can Brad expect his new sibling to be born?
