The: The symptoms of pregnancy can start once implantation occurs. This typically happens about 8-10 days after ovulation. Based on your LMP of 8/30/11, you likely ovulated on or around 10/14/11, if in fact you conceived, then the timing for pregnancy symptoms is consistent. There are early prediction pregnancy tests in stores that can predict pregnancy a week before your next period is due. I suggest you take one to be sure, or you can always follow up with your primary care provider or gynecologist for testing.
Good luck! ...Read more

Could I still be pregnant if my hcg level is 1 if not why am I feeling all symptoms of pregnancy?

Could I still be pregnant if my hcg level is 1 if not why am I feeling all symptoms of pregnancy?

Hormonal imbalance: Did you have unprotected sex? Did you miss a period? If the answer to both is no, you are not pregnant. HCG level of 1 at more than one day after a missed period generally rules out pregnancy. 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.
