In brief: Indeterminate

Hcg of less than 5 is negative for pregnancy and above 25 is considered positive.
..So at 16..It is a "not-sure" level. If you are tesing for pregnancy, repeat in a few days to a wk later, if no change or lower...Than negative...If gets significantly higher, then congrats... Consult your doc...Good luck.
