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.
