Experiencing minor pain in breast after having HCG diet

Good Morning,

I was currently doing the HCG diet when i started having minor pain in my breast, so i decided to take a pragnancy test. It came out Positive. I read online that i could be because of the hormone in the HCG. I went and did blood work on Saturday and i came back with a 5.4. Does it mean im pregnant?

Hello,

HCG diet can give positive pregnancy test. Blood levels of 5.4, I would suggest you to repeat the HVG level after 48hrs, if it doubles in 48 hours it indicates that you are pregnant.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Rishma Lakhani, OB & GYN Specialist
