Reading H Cg Pregnancy Test Results
I was reading a study on genistein and its effects on hCG production.
Is it possible it can cause a 'false negative' pregnancy test result?
Usually not: If you have a good quality urine HCG test, it should not give a false negative reading. If you have any questions, see a provider to be sure. ...Read more
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.

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
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 ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Took hCG pregnancy test one day before period due and came out negative. Can I trust this result.....
Too soon: Nope. You wasted the money on the test. It is negative, but because you had not missed a period yet, and if your period does not start you will have to retest. Wait a few days. If the period does not start then retest. ...Read more
Is it true that pregnancy results depend on the level of hCG being detected on a pregnancy test. Can the level be so low that doctors draw blood?
Yes, most pregnancy : Tests depend on the detection of a certain level of HCG in the blood. It takes about a week after fertilization (sex that results in pregnancy) for any pregnancy test to be positive (even the blood test). After that time, the blood test will reliably detect pregnancy, and after 2-4 days the urine dipstick test will reliably detect pregnancy. ...Read more
Would a quantitative blood pregnancy test result of less than 0.5 hCG be accurate at 5 weeks or is it too early?
Took a urine test 90 days after sex. And a blood hCG pregnancy test 72 days after sex. How accurate is it. Can I trust the result? Thank you
Does drinking alcohol affect the results of a pregnancy test? Since drinking alcohol affects the placenta which affects the hcg hormone?
My last period was on June 1,2017. I did a home pregnancy test and it came out positive. I have no symptoms at all. Waiting for beta hcg test result.
Hi doctors, I did blood pregnancy test today, hcg level: 46iu/l reference: nonpregnant<10,. Last period was 17 april. Does this result mean pregnant?
Yes: If a result has to be less than 10 to be considered nonpregnant, then a 46 means pregnant... unless there is another reason for a level that high, such as a gradually falling bHCG level after a miscarriage. Miscarriages are common. In general, if a woman is having sex, and has a positive pregnancy test, she is pregnant. ...Read more
With postpartum gestational trophoblastic disease would hCG levels be high enough to make a home pregnancy test show a positive result?

Even : Even though bleeding can be a sign of miscarriage, there are instances where bleeding can occur (especially in the first trimester), but the baby is still ok. I'm afraid you are going to have to wait until your appointment to know for sure. They may do additional blood testing and/or an ultrasound depending on your symptoms and how far along you are. Reasons to go to the er are fever, heavy bleeding, or severe pain. ...Read more
