Intercourse on 7/1 only. Hcg blood test <2 yesterday. Still need test? Thanks

Depends: Did you miss a period? If you did and the HCG level was done after missed period, you are not pregnant. If you did not miss a period you may wish to do a home test. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

7 days late on my period. Bloating, nausea, severe diarrhea, light intermittent cramping and a less than 1 hcg on blood test. Could I be pregnant?

7 days late on my period. Bloating, nausea, severe diarrhea, light intermittent cramping and a less than 1 hcg on blood test. Could I be pregnant?

Tests are accurate: Pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If still worried, one can do a home urine test after one more week. ...Read more

Unlikely: If your HCG was <2 on Feb 2, i.e., 26 days after sex, you are very unlikely to be pregnant. The delay in period may be a side effect of Plan B. You may wish to do a home pregnancy test in 7-10 days if you do not get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

Had unsafe sex n took emergency contraceptive pill. 1 month later got hCG 1.5 -ive blood test. Nw 20 days passed since due period date. Am i pregnant?

Had unsafe sex n took emergency contraceptive pill. 1 month later got hCG 1.5 -ive blood test. Nw 20 days passed since due period date. Am i pregnant?

1 out of 8 chance: If emergency contraception is taken as directed, it can significantly decrease the chance that you will get pregnant. About 7 out of every 8 women who would have gotten pregnant will not become pregnant. 1 out of 8 will. Hcg <5 (depending on the lab) is a neg test. If you are late on your period you need to repeat the hcg. ...Read more

How soon can you take a hCG blood test. And how accurate is it. Can I take only one or is more needed.

How soon can you take a hCG blood test. And how accurate is it. Can I take only one or is more needed.

HCG test: A blood, or urine, HCG test should be positive about 10 days after conception — even before you've missed a period. Both will tell you if you are pregnant. If you are concerned about miscarriage, the blood quantitative HCG test will help. This test will need to be done and then repeated in 2-3 days to make sure the HCG is rising normally. ...Read more

Could a blood test for hCG ever be wrong if I took it one month after sex?

Could a blood test for hCG ever be wrong if I took it one month after sex?

Life is not perfect: And life is not exact. If a test says pregnant, and there are no symptoms of pregnancy, just recheck another test. If a test says not pregnant, but there are plenty of pregnancy symptoms, just recheck another test. However, the blood test at one month after sex (with no sex since that event) is almost always correct. ...Read more

I started spotting the 10 of this month was still spotting some yesterday so I went had a blood test done and they my hcg level was at one percent?

Depends: Did you miss a period? Did you have sex since your last period? If you missed a period and/or are more than three weeks past the last episode of sex, you are not pregnant.
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

My first hCG blood test was 19.4mui/ml 3 days later it was 0.00mui/ml and the third one was 2mui/ml I'm 12 days late am i pregnant or not?

No: If 12 days after a missed period, your HCG is less than 5, you are not pregnant. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. Consult this site for more information on this topic.

Hcg blood test level under 2 @ 26 days after unprotected sex. I'm on the pill but took the 1st one a day later than usual by mistake. Should i re-test?

Hcg blood test level under 2 @ 26 days after unprotected sex. I'm on the pill but took the 1st one a day later than usual by mistake. Should i re-test?

See below: Did you miss a period after sex, if you did not, you are not pregnant. An HCG level of two 26 days after sex argues against pregnancy. You may wish to do a home pregnancy test in 4-5 days, use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you get a period before that, then there would be no need for the test. ...Read more

It is possible that: You were pregnant and now you are not. A quanitative HCG test should be able to give you an exact answer. You might need to have it done more than once. Remember every method of birth control has a failure rate of some type, but the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is has a very low failure rate, but it is not zero ...Read more

What does a 1150.0 hCG blood test mean?

Context: You are pregnant. However, the level has to be out into context. Hgg level should correlate with how far you are along. It can even be used to see if you're having a miscarriage, this is because early on the number should always be rising. If it's going down, you probably having a miscarriage. * I hope this helps. ...Read more

Had a blood test yesterday and my HCG was 148. She said that is low for 5 weeks, that it should be 50,000-100,000. Should I be worried? Is that right?

Low; wrong dates?: That is very low for 5 weeks; BUT the usual reason is that the pregnancy is not as far along as believed. If the dating is absolutely certain then that is an abnormally low result. Your doctor should be able to tell you more, and I do hope this helps. ...Read more

My hCG blood test wwas 35mIu/ml?

Need more info: This seems like a normal level for early pregnancy, but to be sure, you should state how many weeks you are. As long as you're having an appropriate rise in your HCG level (doubling every 48-72 hrs), then there's nothing to worry about. There's no need for you to continue checking your HCG level, however, unless you have concerns for miscarriage or your doctor recommends it. Congrats! ...Read more

It's been 10 days since I had sex I just had a blood test that came back at .1 hCG is this too soon to be accurate?

Probably: If you ovulated 10 days ago and got pregnant it would still be early, so I wouldn't count on anything yet. A pregnancy test (home or office) is usually reliable yes/no 1-2 days before your period is expected, regardless of when you had sex. ...Read more

Repeat test: HCG level of less than 5 is not pregnancy, unless you tested too early. You may repeat the blood test.

Can a qualitative hCG serum blood test be incorrect? It says that no hCG was detected or less than 1. Can it be incorrect and can I possibly be preg?

Possible: If you test too early the test may be negative; the test only measures what is present in the blood, if you test too early, you could be pregnant but HCG level has not reached above the 5 units that is the cut off level for diagnosis of pregnancy. See this site for info on this topic.
