I went to the dr at 3 weeks due to light  bleeding they said my hcg level was at a 6 testing through urine sample does that mean I'm losing the baby?

Incomplete info: Blood HCG level of 6 is not consistent with pregnancy. Rather than losing the baby, it is more likely that you were not pregnant to begin with. It would be prudent to see your doctor for repeat blood HCG and may be an ultrasound examination. Wish you good health. ...Read more

Altho some women: experience a delay in fertility after an abortion, you can't count on it as birth control. A positive pregnancy test indicates the presence of HCG. The presence of HCG usually indicates that an embryo has implanted in the uterus (i.e., you're pregnant) but sometimes it means only that placental tissue is present. Please see your gyno and find out what's going on! D ...Read more

My hCG level was at 42 exactly 7 days ago. Today still testing positive for pregnancy (HPT) miscarriage was induced thru tablets (cytotec) on 6/10/14.

HCG after cytotec (misoprostol): It's common for it to take a couple of weeks for the beta-HCG level to drop low enough to be undetectable by home pregnancy test. Rarely, it can take up to 6 weeks to drop below detectable. If you're worried, you can get a blood HCG test to get a more specific result but that's not often necessary or recommended. ...Read more
