Pregnancy: Levels less than two is sometimes negative in most laboratories. Some lab report levels less than 5 units as negative. I don't know if your question comes after having a miscarriage or symptoms of miscarriage or if you are in early pregnancy. If you think you are pregnant, please take your prenatal vitamins and follow up with your doctor. ...Read more
No: Something in not right. At 15 weeks, you need an ultrasound to check your gestation. Either you're pregnant and the HCG level is an error or you are not pregnant. Start with discussing this with your ob. If uterine size is small, most of us perform an ultrasound in the office. If the uterus is empty, repeat the HCG level and if the value remains < 2, you are not pregnant. Take care. ...Read more

Two months late with a negative pregnancy test, is there a chance that I could be pregnant n just have to low of a hCG level to pick up?
Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Best of luck! ...Read more

Missed miscarriage at week 8, baby lost heart beat. Induced miscarriage with cytote 3 weeks ago, now hcg level 300 (was 337 two days ago), need D&C?
Probably...: Cytotec (misoprostol) will usually cause you to pass the tissue left in your uterus. If it doesn't, a D&C is frequently performed. Its also a good idea to continue repeating the HCG level after the D&C until it is zero. This will ensure that there is no other problems related to the miscarriage such as gestational trophoblastic disease. Best Wishes! ...Read more

Need Testing: Your current pregnancy could be a miscarriage or possibly an ectopic pregnancy. At 6 weeks you would expect to see at least a gestational sac in the uterus if it were a normal pregnancy.
