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. ...Read more

My blood test came back with an hCG level of 76 and a progesterone level of 31.6. What does that mean?

My blood test came back with an hCG level of 76 and a progesterone level of  31.6. What does that mean?

Early pregnancy: An HCG level can indicate a very early pregnancy - as long as the level continues to rise (roughly doubling every 48-72 hours), then that is a good sign that the pregnancy is progressing normally. A Progesterone level > 25 is generally a good sign of a healthy pregnancy. ...Read more

Hello. My hCG level is 35.5 in the blood test. What does it mean. Am i pregnant or not.?

Probably not: If you have an elevated HCG then you are pregnant. If the level is falling, or if it isn't rising as fast as expected, then there is a problem with that pregnancy. Talk with your doctor about the meaning of this result. ...Read more

Could be pregnant: I trust that you are under the care of doctor for your and your baby's health. Hcg above 25 is generally diagnostic of pregnancy. You may have tested a bit too soon. It is generally better to test after a missed period. If you miss your period, you may wish to do a home pregnancy test, use first morning urine and follow the instructions in the kit carefully. ...Read more

There : There are lots of reasons your period could be late besides being pregnant. Here are just a few: being emotionally stressed or physically ill. Really low or high weight or really high levels of exercise (like a long distance runner). Losing or gaining a lot of weight. Birth control pills or other medication can impact your periods. An ovarian cyst, polycystic ovaries or fluctuating hormone levels. There are many more possible reasons besides these. It is not uncommon to have some irregularity with periods. I do not know what a test result of 3.4 means. I hope this helps. ...Read more
