Hello Diane,
surely by now, which is nearly a year on you must have had it sorted out.

Yes for sure the HCG levels are high but it has to be seen as rising levels,so a repeat hcg levels could have been done. The reading you got after the day of bleeding suggests interfered pregnancy state. What was the urine pregnancy test report ?
The other symptoms you mention could point towards an abortion which started the bleeding.
Yes the possibility of a pregnancy cannot be ruled out. Indeed, in such circumstances an USG and urine pregnancy test is very helpful.
have your cycles been normal since ?
