User :   I have been trying to conceive for the last 10 months without success. I saw a gynae finally last month and through folicular scans she told me i have delayed ovulation
User :   I just did a blood test and i think i am finally pregnant
User :   but am out of station and i wanted to ask a question regarding my hcg levels
Doctor :   ok
User :   the home pregnancy test line was very faint
Doctor :   ok
User :   blood test says my hcg is 366.40/IU/ml
Doctor :   ok
User :   i think not sure but online sites that help calculation i should be 4 weeks and the count should be 750
User :   is it worrisome.. i am not in town so cant go to my regular gynae and she isnt available on phone right now
User :   ?
Doctor :   please give me a minute
User :   ok
Doctor :   Hcg LEVEL OF 366 indicates a possibility of pregnancy.
Doctor :   but with a single isolated value we cannot say how precise the value is
Doctor :   generally we need to check again after 48 hrs
Doctor :   based on the results, the increase in HCG will be compared and pregnancy concluded.
Doctor :   are you with me?
User :   so i should wait 48 hrs and do a blood test again?
User :   i cant do anything to increase my chances of sustaining it?
