How soon can you take a hCG blood test. And how accurate is it. Can I take only one or is more needed.

How soon can you take a hCG blood test. And how accurate is it. Can I take only one or is more needed.

HCG test: A blood, or urine, HCG test should be positive about 10 days after conception - even before you've missed a period. Both will tell you if you are pregnant. If you are concerned about miscarriage, the blood quantitative HCG test will help. This test will need to be done and then repeated again in 2-3 days to make sure the HCG is rising normally.

What is hCG blood test <1 mean?

What is hCG blood test <1 mean?

Pregnancy test: Usually a HCG level less than 5 miu/ml is interpreted as negative for pregnancy. So this is a negative for pregnancy. All tests must be interpreted with the results from the history and physical examination.

What does it mean if hCG blood test comes out as less than 1?

Normal: Hcg is used as a marker of pregnancy or certain tumor types. Either way, a level of less than 1 would be considered normal.

What does a 1150.0 hCG blood test mean?

Context: You are pregnant. However the level has to be out into context. Hgg level should correlate with how far you are along. It can even be used to see if your having a miscarriage, this is because early on the number should always be rising. If its going down, you probably having a miscarriage. * I hope this helps.

I'm 2 weeks late, went in for a blood test and had hCG level of 1. Does this mean that I m/c or is number normal for a woman who's never been preg?

I'm 2 weeks late, went in for a blood test and had hCG level of 1. Does this mean that I m/c or is number normal for a woman who's never been preg?

Neither: All that test result means is that the woman was not pregnant during the preceding few days to weeks just before the test. One should not read more ideas into a simple test result.

Could a blood test for hCG ever be wrong if I took it one month after sex?

Could a blood test for hCG ever be wrong if I took it one month after sex?

Life is not perfect: And life is not exact. If a test says pregnant, and there are no symptoms of pregnancy, just recheck another test. If a test says not pregnant, but there are plenty of pregnancy symptoms, just recheck another test. However, the blood test at one month after sex (with no sex since that event) is almost always correct.

Depends: Did you miss a period? Did you have sex since your last period? If you missed a period and/or are more than three weeks past the last episode of sex, you are not 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. Consult this site for more information on this topic. Http://www. Nichd. Nih.

Not pregnant: A beta hCG test showing less than 2 simply means that you are not pregnant. Nothing to worry about.

Hello, I got a quantitative blood test hCG 5 weeks after my last encounter. The results are: <2.What does this mean? Shouldn't my level be 0 if not preg?

Same thing: Less than two means not pregnant. It may sound strange but is just the way lab reports report a negative pregnancy test result.

Yes: If your b-hcg is 21685, your pregnant. Someone had to order the lab and inform you of the results. I am curious what they told you. Good luck with pregnancy.

What does it mean to have a high beta Hcg blood test? Mine was 3, 031 am I have twins

What does it mean to have a high beta Hcg blood test? Mine was 3, 031 am I have twins

Need a sonogram: The ranges of normal betaHCG for singleton and multiple pregnancies are very wide and are not very useful to answer your question. You will need a pregnancy sonogram to tell if you "have twins".

Not pregnant: A pregnancy test result of less than 5, means no pregnancy is detected. Pregnancy tests are very accurate 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened).

My blood test for hCG came at <1 but urine test this morning was positive. Is the blood test wrong? What does that mean?

My blood test for hCG came at <1 but urine test this morning was positive. Is the blood test wrong? What does that mean?

Testing for Pregnant: It all depends on when the blood test happened and how many hours or days separated the two. If one was false I would worry more about the urine test. Repeating the blood test once more may be the best next step.

My first hCG blood test was 19.4mui/ml 3 days later it was 0.00mui/ml and the third one was 2mui/ml I'm 12 days late am I pregnant or not?

My first hCG blood test was 19.4mui/ml 3 days later it was 0.00mui/ml and the third one was 2mui/ml I'm 12 days late am I pregnant or not?

No: If 12 days after a missed period, your HCG is less than 5, you are not 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. Consult this site for more information on this topic. Http://www. Nichd. Nih.

Hcg blood test level under 2 @ 26 days after unprotected sex. I'm on the pill but took the 1st one a day later than usual by mistake. Should I re-test?

Hcg blood test level under 2 @ 26 days after unprotected sex. I'm on the pill but took the 1st one a day later than usual by mistake. Should I re-test?

See below: Did you miss a period after sex, if you did not, you are not pregnant. An HCG level of two 26 days after sex argues against pregnancy. You may wish to do a home pregnancy test in 4-5 days, use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you get a period before that, then there would be no need for the test.

I am 5 days before my menstrual cycle. I took hcg blood test and it was <1 (negative). This probably means I am not pregnant correct?

I am 5 days before my menstrual cycle. I took hcg blood test and it was <1 (negative). This probably means I am not pregnant correct?

Maybe: Depends on when you last had unprotected sex, and when you took the blood test in relation to your cicle, and if the test is from a reliable lab. The chances is pretty good you are not pregnant but I wonder why you jumped to a blood test before your mentral cycle is due?
