What does hcg level 1500 mean?

HCG goes up by 500 every week that you are pregnant (or at least this is what a nurse told me) so if your HCG level reads "1000" it means that you are approximatley 2 weeks pregnant.. Meaning if your HCG level reads 1500, you are 3 weeks along.

You went for Beta HCG test and it read less than 2 what does it mean?

You are not pregnant

anything less than 5 is a negative pregnancy test. sorry

You had hcg blood test done and its results showed a normal pregnancy and then you bleed for 2 days does this mean you miscarried?

What does it mean if your last menstrual period was over a month ago and an HCG test was 130 and another HCG test 2 days later was 150 and you haven't had any cramping or bleeding?

the numbers are supposed to double every 48-72 hours. Sounds like you either have HCG in your system from the HCG shot, or from a chemical pregnancy. Your numbers are not doubling like they should be, sorry. If your hcg levels increase it simply means that you are pregnant.

If hcg levels drop by half in 1 day does this mean miscarriage?

HCG levels should double every 2-3 days, i think if HCG levels start dopping this can mean a possible miscarriage.

No.. in order to even get a positive on a pee test you have to be 25 m/l

How can test a pregnancy?

If you mean how to see if you are pregnant, then you could do a home pregnancy test which you have to pee on and it measures your hCG which is a hormone only found in pregnant women. You can also go your local doctor and ask for a blood test. There are two tests from the doctors; Quantitative Blood Test - which measures you exact amount of hCG or the Qualitative Blood Test - which gives you a basic yes or no answer to whether you are pregnant or not. Pregnancy tests are around 97-99% accurate, but with a home pregnancy test, be sure to do 2-3 just to make sure.

How long after conception will a pregnancy test be accurate?

Can you still be pregnant if a test says negative after 2 months?

Yes, though the chances are incredibly slim. Check with your doctor to test your HCG levels. You probably aren't, but having your HCG tested can give you some assurance and help you sleep a little easier :)

Can a pregnancy test be negative at five weeks pregnancy Is there a chance that a pregnancy test cannot detect hCg levels at five weeks pregnancy?

First thing to do is not to stress because stress can make u miss ur period. At five weeks u can detect hcg, u can detect it on a home pregnancy test at 2 weeks. you can be pregnant and not test positive on urine tests because the hcg is not spilling in your urine the only way to find out for sure is a blood test!!! good luck!!

What does your HCG level mean?

It doesn't tell you how far along you are, just that you are pregnant. HCG is the hormone women produce when they are pregnant. Here are more opinions and answers from other FAQ Farmers: * Your HCG levels double every 2-3 days during your pregnancy. * HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone produced ONLY during pregnancy. Pregnancy tests screen for this by a urine test, it's there or it's not. * Contrary to Jamie's response, your HCG level can indicate roughly how far along you are in your pregnancy. Ask your doctor. * HCG is not only produced when pregnant. Males can have HCG levels high enough to be detected by a home pregnancy test and women can also, when they are NOT pregnant. The HCG can be produced by certain tumors. In pregnancy HCG keeps the corpus luteum around to produce estrogen and progesterone, which are necessary in pregnancy. Also, HCG levels differ from each pregnant woman and the doubling is the most important factor. A high HCG level can also indicate a multi gestation pregnancy

Can After a Miscarriage the hcg levels still be high and show pregnant on a test and not be pregnant?

Yes it takes about 2 months for the hormones to settle and during that time the test will show pregnant.

If you take 2 pregnancy tests and they both come back w an inconclusive result - what does that mean?

How was the test inconclusive? Home preg tests look for HCG in your urine: If there is HCG you are preg, if no HCG you are not preg. It is possible that a negative test is because you are testing too early, so if your period hasn't come in a week's time, re-test. Most HPTs have two lines - a testing line and a control line. The control line will always show up if the test was performed correctly. The testing line will only show up if the result is a positive. If the control line does not show up, you have either done the test wrong, or the test is faulty and you should buy another one.

How much hormone do you have to show in your blood to be pregnant?

The hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (better known as hCG) is produced during pregnancy. It is made by cells that form the placenta, which nourishes the egg after it has been fertilized and becomes attached to the uterine wall. Levels can first be detected by a blood test about 11 days after conception and about 12 - 14 days after conception by a urine test. In general the hCG levels will double every 72 hours. The level will reach its peak in the first 8 - 11 weeks of pregnancy and then will decline and level off for the remainder of the pregnancy.There are two types of blood tests. A quantitative blood test measures the exact amount of hCG in the blood, and a qualitative hCG blood test gives a simple yes or no answer to whether you are pregnant or not.The beta hCG test(quantitative blood test), can measure the exact amount of hCG in the blood. Because it can detect even trace amounts of hCG, this is a very accurate test. HCG levels generally double approximately every 2 days for the first four weeks of pregnancy.An hCG level of less than 5mIU/ml is considered negative for pregnancy, and anything above 25mIU/ml is considered positive for pregnancy.

Who has had a false negative blood test for pregnancy before and how far along were you when you found out you were in fact pregnant?

Here is some info about the blood test. There is TWO pregnancy blood tests; both have similar names. 1) The Qualiative pregnancy hcg blood test is very similar to a urine pregnancy test. This blood tests works by giving a yes or no answer, instead of measuring the amount of HCG in your blood. For example if you have 50u of HCG in your blood & it will only recognize a positive result at 52U then you will get a negative result. This is ridiculous & especially awful when diagnosing early pregnancy. Especially when you bear in mind that 5U = pregnant. 2) The Quantitative beta hcg blod test is HIGHLY accurate. This test works by measuring the exact amount of HCG in your blood. You need to always write down the name of this blood test & ask your Doctor specifically for it. Always make sure your Doctor has order this blood test & NOT the qualiative.

If someone has an ectopic is it possible that the next pregnancy their hormones will run lower and not show up as fast on a pregnancy test?

It is possible but the most common type or HCG being low is in a pregnant womans urine which is why it takes some women 2 months to find out if they are pregnant. Low HCG in the blood should be checked regularly by your doctor and made sure it isn't decreasing. Decreasing HCG usually means a threatened miscarriage. See your doctor for a HCG quantitative blood test and have the HCG levels checked twice a week to make sure your levels are increasing.

Can you still be pregnant if you are 8 days late for period have several pregnancy symptoms hcg level of 2 and negative test?

It is highly unlikely No.

Could it be possible to be pregnant even though 2 blood pregnancy tests came back negative?

Not likely. The test is for hCG, which is produced by an embryo. No embryo, no hCG. I'm assuming your blood pregnancy tests were drawn at the appropriate times (where hCG is detectable) from assumed conception? If you've had 2 tests, and they were several days apart, it's pretty certain that you are not pregnant. hCG levels climb rather quickly once they get going. I guess the long shot is that the lab screwed up two separate tests. Go get an OTC pregnancy test and do it at home.

How long after a complete miscarriage can you get a true hcg reading?

not sure wut u mean by tru, but if u mean a positive result indicating a second pregnancy than about a month after the miscarriage. one the hcg has dropped from the miscarriage u can ovulate (which may take 3 or 4 weeks, depending how far along u were) and 2 weeks after taht u can test for a new pregnancy.

How many days before can do pregnancy test?

i was thinking that myself, look this is what i found out.. There are two types of blood tests you can get from a health care provider. A quantitative blood test (or the beta hCG test) measures the exact amount of hCG in the blood. This means it can pick up very small amounts of hCG, making it a very accurate test. A qualitative hCG blood test gives a simple yes or no answer to whether you are pregnant. This test is more like a urine test in terms of its accuracy. Blood tests can pick up hCG earlier in a pregnancy than urine tests can. Blood tests can tell if you are pregnant about 6 to 8 days after you ovulate (or release an egg from an ovary). Urine tests can determine pregnancy about 2 weeks after ovulation. Some more sensitive urine tests can tell if you are pregnant as early as 6 days after you conceive, or one day after you miss a menstrual period.
