I've had extremely faint positives on strip tests since 10 dpo so got a blood test done on the 14th. Being a poas addict, I got a digital test same day which confirmed I'm pregnant but then I got a phone call from my Doctor this morning saying the result was 'indecisive' at a hcg level of 37 and to go back for another test next week.
From what I have read a level above 25 is judged as a positive but should I be worried by how low my hcg is? I've not had any spotting or cause for concern yet but a weeks a long time to wait to make sure everythings ok!
Honestly, I would call your doctor back and ask for another blood draw- you'll want two draws about 48-72 hrs apart. Although that level is on the lower end of the scale, that's still positive for pregnancy. More important though is how the level increases- as it should double about every 48 hours. I'm surprised he wanted you to come back a week later? That seems way to long to wait hun. I'd push to get in sooner. When I got blood draws, that is how my Fertility Clinic wanted me to do it... and they compared the two samples.
Below is a chart of "average" levels per week of pregnancy. Looks like you fall in the average at 4 weeks to me!!!
Thank you! I'm going to follow your advice and go back to Doctors today and ask for another, especially as my last pregnancy ended in a miscarriage, I want them to take extra care with this one if there is already cause for concern! Fingers crossed my numbers have doubled now! x
The first time I was pregnant I got the exact same call from the doctor's office saying the results were inconclusive at 35. I knew I was only 11DPO, but they still said it was inconclusive. I freaked out! I tested again a few days later and they were around 300, and then they were able to 'confirm' the pregnancy.
it dont matter how low ya start out as!!! i jus went thro this myself an now im miscarryin but thats cause my hcg was not doublin every 48 to 72 hrs like it should of;( very sad for me!!!!! i started at 44 and went down to 27 an then miscarried...so as long as you double or rise you should be fine girl!!! dont stress about it!!! like some have said just go ahead an get a nother blood test done an see what the results come out as!!! definately prayin for ya and hope everything goes well with you pregnancy best of luck to you
