Clear Blue Conception test = HCG Level

Hello Ladies,

I have read that the Clear Blue Conception Indicator tests work like this :

1-2 Weeks = 25 - 200 HCG
2-3 Weeks = 200 - 2000 HCG
3+ weeks = 2000+

have any of you ladies had your Betas done and checked using s CB test??

sorry can't help you there, they aren't the most accurate things though!

You have to remember that it takes longer for hcg to show in urine than it does in look, so the levels in your urine are always going to be a day or so behind on your blood test results. Having said that, no I have never found those tests to be accurate and they generally cause more worry than they are worth!!!

I didn't, but I did have a massive stress when at 6 weeks it didn't do up to 3+ weeks, and I'm pg with twins, so I don't rate them at all!

Yes I checked my blood against clear blue indicator

The day before my 1st beta hcg clear blue read 3+
So the next day I did another and it read 2-3 massive panic went docs and when results back they were 1307

Did another clear blue next day 3+
Went for my 2nd beta next day again = 2137

No way do clear blue read correct

Hope this helps x

I wouldn't trust them either really, they are not a reliable way of measuring hcg. X

No, no, no. Don't trust them! The amount of threads I've seen by women who're getting 1-2 or 2-3 when they think they should be getting a 3+ or women who've had a 3+ reading and then tested again to get a 2-3 is unreal. They're unreliable and cause so much worry!

I started doing the clearblue tests this pregnancy and got 1-2 then a week later 2-3 then a week later STILL 2-3 and I was 5weeks 5days at this point coming up to 6weeks. I completely freaked out because the leaflet said I should have had a 3+ at this stage of the pregnancy. I carried on doing them and didn't get a 3+ until I was over 6weeks pregnant and I had to hold my pee for six hours! Also I got a 2-3 that same morning, then held pee for six hours and got the 3+ straight away within seconds it appeared in the afternoon. When I went for a scan baby was measuring bang on my dates, so it wasnt possible I was just behind and that's why it took longer so according to babies growth on ultrasound I should have had the 3+ sooner than I did also.

I'd deff not test with clearblue digi in any other pregnancies.

I know this is from years ago but I took a cb digi at 3+4 weeks pregnant and got 1-2 which lined up and my beta hcg reading for the day after that was 170.3
I did another one a week later (today) and I got 3+! I'm 4+4 weeks pregnant and my beta hcg for today was 1540.
