HCG level of less than 5 is not pregnancy, unless you tested too early. You may repeat the blood test. Or you could do a home test with urine, If it is negative, re do the test in 4-5 days 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.

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 dr confirmed I miscarried based a blood test, I have the paper work but I don't understand how he knows, it doesn't show my hcg levels?
See below: Ms. Kathryn 440: You have two related questions. It would be better to talk to your doctor for explanation. Blood HCG needs to be higher than 25 to diagnose pregnancy. It is not clear how a urine pregnancy test told you that you are 2-3 weeks pregnant. You may repeat the urine pregnancy test, be sure to follow the instructions for the test carefully. Better would be to see your doctor for a repeat blood test and if needed an ultrasound examination. ...Read more
My blood test came back with an hCG level of 76 and a progesterone level of 31.6. What does that mean?
Early pregnancy: An HCG level can indicate a very early pregnancy - as long as the level continues to rise (roughly doubling every 48-72 hours), then that is a good sign that the pregnancy is progressing normally. A Progesterone level > 25 is generally a good sign of a healthy pregnancy. ...Read more
I took a blood test and it was positive HCG level was a 6 is it possible that I start implantation bleeding today?
Don't know yet: Hard to say, best thing is to see your provider and get "serial HCGs", blood pregnancy tests every few days to see if the number is rising or falling. 6 is a very low level. Some women get a "chemical pregnancy" where there is a low positive test but no fetus grows. You will need to see your provider to determine what is going on. ...Read more
I had 1 AA/5 day embryo transferred 12 days ago and got a positive blood test but with a hCG level of 12.2. Is this good or bad?
This level is fine. It means you do have a pregnancy and is within the normal limits we expect to see for a pregnancy around 2 weeks. This number should continue to double every 48-72 hours in a healthy pregnancy. At 3 weeks, you should be anywhere between 5 and 50mIu/mL.
Congrats! ...Read more

How fast does hCG level drop if you have a miscarriage and I took a blood test and it was positive if I had a miscarriage would it still be positive?
Yes: Yes beta h cg levels take some time to go to zero again after a miscarriage sometimes there can be retained products of conception in the uterus which causes the HCG levels to stay increased. Sometimes there is a abnormal proliferation of placental tissue. If it persists for more than three weeks please have this evaluated with your ob/gyn. ...Read more
