Will a doc take me seriously if i go in because of 3 chemical pregnancies only determined by at home test? Will i just be told to stop testing early?

Pregnancy Test: I am confident that most physicians take their patients seriously when they state that they tested positive on a home pregnancy test. The physician will still verify and perform other tests, including an ultrasound to determine the status of the pregnancy. A blood test (bhcg) may be necessary. ...Read more

Early miscarriages: Biochemical pregnancy (positive HCG hormone but too low to see a pregnancy on ultrasound) is either very early miscarriage or early tubal pregnancy. You need to be checked for tubal problems and polyps/fibroids in the uterus with an hsg, as well as tests for diminished ovarian reserve (low egg supply). After 2 + losses you should be checked for thrombophilias and autoimmune causes of miscarriage. ...Read more

If your home pregnancy test was "positive", a serum pregnancy test is the next step and repeating it in 2-3 days is recommended. If the level rises it may indicate a viable pregnancy (x2 elevation at least). ...Read more
