i was supposed to have my period on May 5th I did 3 home pregnency test on May 9th,10th and 11th and all of them were positive, also i went to the doctor on the 12th and he confirm it i had some blood test done and on the 14th they call me and told me that i need to repet the blood test because the levels doesn't show that I am that far ( docotr told me 4 weeks) or if the levels are droping i am having a miscarriage but I'm not bleeding and i don't have a big pain. is this good or bad?                                                             
Doctor :   Hi
User :   hi
User :   can you help me?
Doctor :   4 weeks and the blood levels of hcg not to the mark as expected and it is not rising the levels it should be when repeated is not a good sign
User :   but why?
User :   i was never pregnant?
Doctor :   it may either you are going for miscarriage or it is ectopic pregnancy or intrauterine growth retardation
User :   but miscarriage I'm not bleeding
Doctor :   progressing towards miscarriage is different from miscarriage right
Doctor :   you need an ultrasound abdomen for the assesment
User :   ok thanks
