Hcg 11


Hello everyone,

We stopped birth control and timed everything (started trying immediately). We calculated when we thought ovulation would start. After that when we calculated that menstrual period should start friday - sunday (18-20 may).

We did a first test on saturday 19 may which was negative. We had a second test on Wednesday evening (23 may) which looked positive (not a perfect line). Next day we tested with a Clearblue test (morning urine) which can tell how long you are pregnant. This test was also positive and said 1-2 weeks (lowest option).

We immediately went to the doctor next day, he tested the blood. Today we received the first HCG which is 11.

We are quite worried about this HCG. We have a new appointment in a few weeks, he did not say anything about a second blood test to see if it rises.

Is this normal?

Thank you for your advice.

Well it’s not very high but HCG does have to start somewhere. I’m surprised the doctor didn’t order repeat tests, but although pregnancy tests are qualitative and not quantitative, you can continue using pregnancy tests to see if the line is getting darker (an indication your HCG is rising). Other than that unfortunately there’s nothing you can do except wait and see. However positive urine and blood tests means that you are pregnant, so congratulations!

I agree. Iím surprised your doctor isnít repeating the test in 48 hours. However, you are pregnant! How many dpo are you?

Since we immediately started after stopping with birth control pills it isn't easy to calculate all the exact dates. We used rough guesses to find the right time to try. Similarly we guessed the menstrual period would have started last week, or weekend.

I don't think an hcg of 11 is anything to be worried about in and of itself, it's more about how it rises. Have you asked your doctor for a second test to see it rising?

The number itself doesn't matter as much as whether it's doubling regularly or not. HcG 11 could just mean it's just implanted. One quantitative reading on a blood test doesn't mean much without a follow up for comparison, it ends up telling you as much as a qualitative blood at that point. Just keep POAS, or ask for a follow up blood test if you are nervous. Many OBs will do a confirmation Appointment with you at around 5 weeks but they will just have you POAS anyway unless your in fertility treatment or high risk (typically)
