Would need more info: It is more important to see if the HCG level is appropriately rising rather than what the actual number is. Additionally, it would be important to know what the ultrasound findings are since you would be 6 and 6/7 weeks pregnant at this point. I would suggest being seen by an ob/gyn.

A 32-year-old female asked:
If hCG isn't produced until 7-10 post conception, why do some dr's say that u can test positive (if pregnant) just 3days post conception? Who's right?

Wrong: Traditional pregnancy test that measures HCG is not positive three days after fertilization.
