I went to the dr at 3 weeks due to light bleeding they said my hcg level was at a 6 testing through urine sample does that mean I'm losing the baby?

I went to the dr at 3 weeks due to light  bleeding they said my hcg level was at a 6 testing through urine sample does that mean I'm losing the baby?

Incomplete info: Blood HCG level of 6 is not consistent with pregnancy. Rather than losing the baby, it is more likely that you were not pregnant to begin with. It would be prudent to see your doctor for repeat blood HCG and may be an ultrasound examination. Wish you good health. ...Read more

My hCG level was at 42 exactly 7 days ago. Today still testing positive for pregnancy (HPT) miscarriage was induced thru tablets (cytotec) on 6/10/14.

HCG after cytotec (misoprostol): It's common for it to take a couple of weeks for the beta-HCG level to drop low enough to be undetectable by home pregnancy test. Rarely, it can take up to 6 weeks to drop below detectable. If you're worried, you can get a blood HCG test to get a more specific result but that's not often necessary or recommended. ...Read more

Pregnancy unlikely: If 18 days after a missed period, your HCG is less than 5, you are unlikely to be pregnant. 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.
