Probably: The only thing about an HCG level is that the absolute number isn't the most important thing. Usually the lab is repeated after 48 hours at least once to determine if the level is increasing appropriately. It should double every 48 hours but can still be normal is it goes up less than that. ...Read more
See below: You are right about the wide variation in HCG levels and it would be better to use more than one level. See this site for more info. http://www.americanpregnancy.org/duringpregnancy/hcglevels.html. ...Read more

Rough:3 wks: 5-50 4wk 5-486, 5wk:18-7340 (labs vary don't fret early variation common, us can confirm ega). ...Read more
If hCG level was 634 and clearblueeasy conception indicator levels with their tests are this range: 2-3 weeks = 201miu to 2000miu -- rough estimate?
Rough estimate: Impossible to accurately date a pregnancy by the value of the HCG test. The range hey give you is a rough estimation. There are many variables that can affect the amount of HCG production during various stages of fetal development. Best dating of baby age is transvaginal ultrasound done around 7-8 weeks of pregnancy. ...Read more

I know there is a wide range of hCG levels in pregnant women.Aren't the first 3 weeks very similar though?And how tests with the weeks indicator work?
