Based on how high the hcg level is, a good guess can be made about the length of your pregnancy. Your doctor should do a vaginal sonogram to determine gestational age thus determining the due date.

However, higher levels of the hormone HCG are often found in the case of multiples. (twins etc.) Lower levels of HCG may indicate the egg has inplanted in a place other than the uterus. (Fallopian Tube = Etopic Pregnancy)

Blood work cannot tell you how far along you are as the levels vary so much from pregnancy to pregnancy, go with the ultrasound.

Well for one it can confirm whether or not you are pregnant. The blood tests will also be conducted to test your plasma protein level and your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels.

There is a hormone called HCG that shows up when a fetus is growing. No matter where the fetus is growing, in utero or out. It will most likely pick it up but maybe not until farther along. If you think you have an ectopic pregnancy it is best to call a doctor IMMEDIATELY and get blood tests and an ultrasound.

No you cannot tell if you're pregnant this soon, unless you see your Doctor for a pregnancy blood test.

When you go to the doctor they will give you a vaginal ultrasound where you can see the baby and they measure it and based on that they can tell you how far along you are.

Hello. You can tell if you are pregnant by doing a pregnancy test or having a blood test. If you dont have your period and are usually regular and have had sex recently, then this could be pregnancy related.

Your Dr will be able to tell you this if you are unsure, but it goes by the first day of your last period.

Not really unless you have a pregnancy blood test performed.

Yes, we as women always have pregnancy symptoms that's why it's so hard to tell when we are actually pregnant. The only true way to tell is a blood test from the doctor.
