User :   i have been trying for 5 years to get preg and was just inseminated on apr 27 today i took hpt and it came back pos. dr ran hcg intact and my value was 166 is this a pos test
User :   hello is anyone there
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   yes it is a positive test
User :   what should the level be
User :   i took a triger shot of hgc 13 days ago but that should be out of my system
Doctor :   that you need to find out with your doctor as it requires the exact week of pregnancy
User :   well i concieved on apr 27
Doctor :   it is the date of insemination
User :   yes
User :   does the trigger shot effect the results
Doctor :   it is the increase in the hcg levels that will confirm the presence and continuation of the pregnancy
Doctor :   but the presence levels are far above the initial pregnancy levels
User :   so i should not consider this as that i am pregnant
Doctor :   considering the insemination done on 27 th april for today it will be almost 2 weeks
User :   so are the levels where they should be
Doctor :   the hcg levels at the 3 weeks usually are above 45 miU/ml
Doctor :   and youre is 166
Doctor :   so the present reading does fall in the range of pregnancy
User :   is this a big problem could it be false pos... or could it be multiples
Doctor :   confirm with your doc as hcg might be injected for you to prepare for the insemination
User :   it was on apr 25 10,000
Doctor :   ok
User :   so do i still need to worry about false pos.. on may 2 hcg was 20 for the shot
Doctor :   confirmation of pregnancy in this situation can be done by seeing the raise in the hcg levels in the blood
User :   i mean i went to er on may 2 and when they did hcg test it came back as 20
Doctor :   the sample taken after 2 days from now should show an increase then the 166
