Extrauterine: Pregnancy is an issue that needs to be considered. If there is no pregnancy, intra or extra uterine, you need to be investigated for a tumor that may be making hcg. In either case consultation with an obstetrician would be prudent.

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Why...: May I ask why you are getting your quantitative HCG checked regularly? Hcg for nml pregnancy is expected to double every 48-72 hours, which sounds like about right where you are at.

Many things: Many things can cause a delayed period. To be sure about pregnancy, if you have been having unprotected intercourse, repeat the test 3-5 days after the first one. This could be some of the natural variation in cycle length (some eggs grow faster than others) or could be due to stress, medications, illness, diet, exercise, weight, or changes in your schedule/sleep. Hope this helps.

Fertility specialist: The best person to answer this is your fertility specialist as they will know your body, lab work and will know how you responded to medication. A step by step approach is used infertility cases and each one must be individualized

Partner checked yet?: Hopefully your male partner/husband has had a sperm analysis done as 40 to 45% of all infertility problems are male derived. I am assuming your are doing Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and not IVF that fertilizes the ovum outside of the uterus and re-implants it.

I had a positive beta hCG of 54 after 14 days of et and levels dropped to 0.1. Could I still be pregnant?

I had a positive beta hCG of 54 after 14 days of et and levels dropped to 0.1. Could I still be pregnant?

No: A beta HCG level below 10 is not consistent with an ongoing pregnancy. This abrupt decline indicates a very early pregnancy loss sometimes referred to as a "chemical" pregnancy.

If hCG isn't produced until 7-10 post conception, why do some dr's say that u can test positive (if pregnant) just 3days post conception? Who's right?

Impossible: You may have possibly have a positive pregnancy test as early as 3 days after implantation. It takes almost a week from conception till implantation. The HCG which is what the pregnancy test is measuring isn't even released until after implantation.

I got a? on a first response pregnancy test. Does that mean there is still hcg present but not enough for a positive result?

I got a? on a first response pregnancy test. Does that mean there is still hcg present but not enough for a positive result?

Mommy, AreWeThereYet?: Maybe it means that you are pregnant and the baby has a question for you. Or, according to their instructions, it means there was an error in the test and that they want you to do the test again. Tests of various kinds often have to be repeated for that reason, a glitch in the mechanics of the test, or a faulty sample. But I kinda like the first idea. Think about what questions your baby might ask you

On CD21 is it to soon to get a positive beta hCG blood test? I recieved a negative result on CD21. Do I still have a chance of being pregnant?

On CD21 is it to soon to get a positive beta hCG blood test? I recieved a negative result on CD21. Do I still have a chance of being pregnant?

Patience: Patience. A pregnancy test done correctly should give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex or 1 week after missing a period. Done too soon, a negative pregnancy test might be a false negative. Generally, there is no need to test too soon. Also, a woman is not pregnant if she gets her normal, regular period; meaning she should not need a pregnancy test unless she misses her usual, regular period.

Is it true that it takes about 10 days for a urine pregnant test to turn positive (threshold for most of 25ml/iu)? When would an hCG level reach 600ml/iu?

Is it true that it takes about 10 days for a urine pregnant test to turn positive (threshold for most of 25ml/iu)? When would an hCG level reach 600ml/iu?

Yes and by about 3 w: The urine pregnancy test is usually positive by ten days after conception. The pregnancy hormone will usually double every two days. If it is 25 on day ten, it should be over 600 by day 20. (5 doublings).

My blood hCG levels are 6 hpt faint positive could I be pregnant?

My blood hCG levels are 6 hpt faint positive could I be pregnant?

Unlikely: There's a chance that you are incredibly early in pregnancy. Are you having any bleeding or cramping? This changes things. If no symptoms, i'd wait a week and retest.

Could I be pregnant or is it a false pregnancy? I had hCG shot and now my test is slightly positive.

Could I be pregnant or is it a false pregnancy? I had hCG shot and now my test is slightly positive.

Either one depending: Hcg injection stays in the body for an average of 10 days. Checking a pregnancy test prior to that time can give a false positive, while checking much after 10 days is usually due to pregnancy if the test is positive. I hope this helps!

How long does it take hCG to build up in order to get a positive urine pregnancy test? How many days?

How long does it take hCG to build up in order to get a positive urine pregnancy test? How many days?

Take a test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors 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.
