Hi Razia

Thanks for posting your query

Some basic information of HCG

In a non-pregnant woman, the values are less than 10 mIU/ml.

They are typically about 100 mIU/ml 14 days after ovulation in a healthy singleton pregnancy.

They should double every 48- 72 hours in a healthy pregnancy.

I should be clear now that you were not pregnant, considering the normal pattern of HCG

Hope this helps

Hi Razia,

Thank you for submitting your query.

I would like to know,
1. If you were given a HCG injection?
2. Did you do a Urine Pregnancy Test at home. If yes, what was the result?
3. Did you suffer from unwanted bleeding?

HCG is detected in blood only if a HCG injection has been administered or during pregnancy because It is made by cells that form the placenta, which nourishes the egg after it has been fertilized and becomes attached to the uterine wall. HCG Levels can first be detected by a blood test about 11 days after conception and If you have not received any HCG injection, the chances are high that you have suffered a Miscarriage or a blighted ovum which happens when a fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterine wall, but the embryo does not develop.

Here I would like to let you know that anything above 25mIU/ml is considered positive for pregnancy and I would suggest you to get yourself examined by a competent Gynecologist for further evaluation.

Good Luck.

Take Care.
