Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The HCG levels are nigh during pregnancy and the test is also done called Beta-HcG to confirm pregnancy.If you are sexually active and have unprotected sex then may be you are pregnant.Please consult your doctor and discuss it with the doctor since he /she has called you.
Thanks

5wk+ diagnosed with positive pregnancy (cfm ed high baseline Hcg). U/S confirms small gestational sac with mildly deformed shape. Under Progesterone daily injections. No H/B nor Yolk Sac nor fetal pole yet. What is worrying is the small decrease in b-Hcg from 19000+ to 15000+ over 48h. Is this viable pregnancy? Thx

hello doctor, my husbands sperm is not enough fertile to make successful fertilization, so I took fertility treatment. doctors put some injections to make my ovary system overactive so that it draws the sperm itself. after that I have been injected with the sperm of my husband into my ovary. after that as a process, I have been using gestone injection for a month... my last period was 8 february n today is 17 th march. --I didn t have my period till today.. --and in urine test by home pregnancy tester the result is negative --but in blood test hcg level is 471 which is positive --pls advise kindly if that means I m pregnant or not?? --and with that hcg level urine test should be positive but it is not.pls advise what can make it negative with this hcg level? --also it is clear my period is delayed 9days than the normal cycle. is it only the side effect of gestone? and how many days gestone can delay the period than normal cycle?? awaiting for reply urgently.... thanks Tania Mehzabeen +0000

I had 4 positive pregnancy tests and I went to the doc to do a hcg test and a ultrasound.. doc stated that she didn t see anything... but it looks like it could ve been a possible collapsed sac... after the appointment she had me do the hcg... a week later asked me to come in and redo the hcg... I got a call today stating my my hcg doubled... started at 3200ish now is at 22000ish dont remember the exact numbers but she also stated that I started out levels showing about 5-6 weeks.. second hcg put me at about 7-8... my question is it possible I still may be pregnant?? Cant keep food down n really tender breasts... no cycle or bleeding since the end of march

I am 34 yr old.1 week S/p right salpingectomy for 6wk ectopic, beta hcg 5000 presummably caused by copper iud failure. Bleeding stopped yesterday. I am now having odd tingling sensation on right side. Same sensation is faint on left side as well. My question is, is it possible to be close to ovulation 7 days after surgery? Is it normal to have more sensation with ovulation after salpingectomy or miscarriage? I understand mittelschmerz can be felt on right side more often even when left ovary ovulates. Also, is it necessary to do repeat beta hcg post salpingectomy for ectopic? Thank you for your help.

Hi, My wife had just gone through IVF process and had the Embryo Transfer on the 25th May 2014 (16 days ago) Proluton Depot 250mg was given on the transfer day itself, and every 3 days after that. The last injection given was on the 6th June. Also given was PREGNYL 5000IU on the day of the transfer and 3 days interval twice(6th June was the last Pregnyl Injection). Today, we made a BLOOD HCG and the result shows negative. What went wrong? Do Pregnyl or Proluton effect the reading of HCG in blood?
