I have done my beta hCG test on 9th oct 2012. It is positive. But I have been given hCG injection on 3rd oct, may be due to that my hCG blood report ?

I have done my beta hCG test on 9th oct 2012. It is positive. But I have been given hCG injection on 3rd oct, may be due to that my hCG blood report  ?

Why did you take: Hcg injection? The half life of HCG is from 0.5 to 4 days, depending on the level. Your blood levels of HCG would depend on the dose of hcg, and any stabilizer. You need to address the matter with your doctor with information about last menstrual period, episodes of sex, any medications etc. If you are taking HCG injections to lose weight, you are wasting your money and jeopardizing your health! ...Read more

How soon can u.Do blood hCG test..

How soon can u.Do blood hCG test..

8-9 days : The earliest pregnancy test you can take is a quantitative blood test. It can detect HCG 8-9 days after fertilization of the egg. If it shows a level less than 25, then it is equivocal and might need to be repeated in a couple of days. Visit your doctor if there is concern. ...Read more

Is it true that the qualitative blood hCG test is as good as a urine test? It only tests positive with a 25mlu?

Is it true that the qualitative blood hCG test is as good as a urine test? It only tests positive with a 25mlu?

Probably close: The modern upt is very sensitive. 25mlu is very low, like just after implantation ( i'm not sure how long but just a couple of days. I recommend people skip the period before the upt, however. Otherwise you can be chasing it too hard causing extra stress. Pregnancy rates are about 10-20% per month; good luck with everything. ...Read more

Can drinking a lot of water before dried blood spot test decrease papp-a and beta hCG test results? They were both low.

Can drinking a lot of water before dried blood spot test decrease papp-a and beta hCG test results?  They were both low.

Not the cause: Drinking water should not alter a blood test. You would have to drink a lot of water to dilute a test. Always discuss a test result with your doctor, he/she can explain the results and their expectation. You can bring a family member also to help write down what is said for later review. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Is serum hcg a blood pregnancy test?

Is serum hcg a blood pregnancy test?

Serum HCG: HCG is "human choriogonadotrophin" and is produced with pregnancy. Home pregnancy tests are not always accurate, but if HCG is detected it can only come from a pregnancy, and is therefore very accurate. ...Read more

When should I take blood quantitative beta HCG test after intercourse/sex?Is it accurate enough if I do that 2 weeks after intercourse/sex?

When should I take blood quantitative beta HCG test after intercourse/sex?Is it accurate enough if I do that 2 weeks after intercourse/sex?

It depends...: A blood test is fairly accurate about 7-10 days after intercourse. Qualitative (not quantitative) blood tests are usually used to detect pregnancy. Home urine pregnancy tests are about 99% accurate if it has been one week since a period was missed. They may detect a pregnancy earlier than that but are less reliable to rule out pregnancy. ...Read more

Hello, I got a blood hcg test and it was 5.3 miu. I ovulated 7 days before the test and my usual hcg level is 2 miu. Is 5.3 miu considered pregnant?

No: Even sensitive pregnancy tests are not accurate enough to distinguish 5 mIU as positive or negative. It is too early at 7 dpo: pregnancy tests are not reliable until 11-12 days after ovulation. Good wishes. ...Read more

Is it possible to be with a weak positive hpt at 12 weeks?I did a blood hcg test at would would be 13weeks and it was 0.100 could I still be preg?

Is it possible to be with a weak positive hpt at 12 weeks?I did a blood hcg test at would would be 13weeks and it was 0.100 could I still be preg?

No: At 12 weeks of pregnancy, one would have missed her menstrual period bleeding for 2-3 months already. She would have very positive pregnancy tests, both urine or blood. Otherwise she cannot pregnant, unless she has been having recent sex in the last 2 months. Remember that home urine pregnancy tests are very positive if truly pregnant, by about 4-5 weeks of pregnancy (about 2-3 weeks after sex). ...Read more

If embryo isn't connected to maternal blood supply until 7days post conception, this would mean hCG isn't yet produced for a urine pregnancy test?

No: The embryo can produce HCG as early as 5 days post fertilization but the amounts are so small and the maternal-fetal blood connections are so minimal that not even a blood test can pick it up, let along a urine pg test that is not positive until your HCG levels are 20 iu/ml or more. You should, however, be able to pick up HCG in a blood test as early as day 9 post ovulation but the levels are low. ...Read more

I have pcos i can't go by miss period to take a hCG test. Took blood test 22 days after unprotected sex how accurate is this test?

Hard to tell: Since you don't know when you ovulate if you ovulate at all, it's hard for me to tell how accurate your blood test is. At least it is accurate at that time. If you're in doubt over potential pregnancy, repeat it in 3 -4 weeks. ...Read more

Hi I had a blood serum hcg test a couple of days ago the result was less than 1 however I'm still getting positive pregnancy tests?

Repeat test: Blood test is generally more reliable than urine test. You may wish to repeat the blood test in 4-5 days, unless you get a period by then. I trust that you did the test, after a missed period.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Is it true that pregnancy results depend on the level of hCG being detected on a pregnancy test. Can the level be so low that doctors draw blood?

Is it true that pregnancy results depend on the level of hCG being detected on a pregnancy test. Can the level be so low that doctors draw blood?

Yes, most pregnancy : Tests depend on the detection of a certain level of HCG in the blood. It takes about a week after fertilization (sex that results in pregnancy) for any pregnancy test to be positive (even the blood test). After that time, the blood test will reliably detect pregnancy, and after 2-4 days the urine dipstick test will reliably detect pregnancy. ...Read more

After 12 days from sex period came for 7 days After 22 days from sex blood test was 1.0 hcg. Is 22 days after sex is enough to do blood hcg test?

After 12 days from sex period came for 7 days After 22 days from sex blood test was 1.0 hcg. Is 22 days after sex is enough to do blood hcg test?

Yes: You had a period after sex. There was no need to test for HCG. Given the HCG level, if you have not had sex again, you are not pregnant. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
