Hcg levels: It really shouldn't go down. However, if the tests were done at 2 different labs you can't compare the two being a couple days apart. I would repeat the level in about a week. Might be a good idea to check a progesterone level as well as very low levels are associated with miscarriage or tubal pregnancy. ...Read more

Doctor said that some sensitive home pregnancy tests can pick up a positive result with an hCG level of just 1mlu. Possible? How?

Does it matter? : Most tests pick up a bhcg of about 20. I am not sure why this is useful information though. A bhcg coubles every 48 hours. Even in the rare cicumstance where someone checks a test so early it can not detect it (say a level of 19) 48 hours later your level is high enough for detection. Home pregnancy tests are very simple and very accurate. ...Read more

Your positive pregnancy tests are reassuring that you are still pregnant. Discuss with your provider whether or not another hCG measurement to reassure or clarify is indicated. ...Read more
