My husband thinks that they won't give result snow because it will be them over riding a doctors decision. Going to go to doctors tomorrow and ask her to call and get the results. She's fantastic and always tries her best to get answers immediately!

I know I'm grasping at straws but I'm hoping he read the wrong results.

Hi my friend has just had same, she did a test and went to docs had a scan nothing but lining thickened. They put her through 4 weeks of anxiety saying nothing there when actually it was too early her lining had thickened at right time..next scan there was a sac ..next time a heartbeat......at one point docs wanted to do surgery to remove saying it hadnt grown...she now has an 8 week little one growing just as it should be. x

That doctor sounds like a Grade A Plank.

HCG is detectable in urine before anything is visible on the scan, because HPT's are so sensitive! With BHCG of 23, you need a follow up scan in a couple of weeks, or at the very least a follow up blood draw.

When I went for an early scan I was 6 weeks but the hospital called it 7 weeks because they were unaware of my late ovulation. I did see a bean but it was hard to find and my gest sac was HUGE, which made them think the pregnancy was going wrong. Follow up scan proved them wrong. What I'm saying is we are all different, and I bet in a couple of weeks you'll see a sac and a little beanie in there. Its in NHS guidlines that no early pregnancy should be called nonviable without at least 2 scans or a series of blood draws and a scan or two. Bad doctor!

If I were you I would call the doctor back and ask what he is basing his opinion on when the general rule is that nothing will be visible on a scan until HCG is over 1000...and the sensitivity of the clearblue test you used is around 25 miu/ml. Then call your local hospital and ask to be put through to the EPAU and tell them the whole story, they will most likely have you in for bloods and although its usually a dr referral that gets you in there, they do have the power to decide to see you without a referral- they saw me without a referral because I called and explained myself and that I have o decent relationship with any gp's.

Try not to worry (easier said than done) one day at a time is the best way to get through the worrying bit.

Hey Lozdi - it was the epau that did the scan and the blood draw The tech there who did the ultrasound just told me I wasn't pregnant but they'd do bloods, and the bloods came back the same!
Still not positive he hasn't read someone elses results, seeing as he kept calling me dawn, then he hung up and called again saying "Hi Dawn"

:S

He also asked what it was I'd had had before, an ectopic or something else (forget what the other thing was) and I've had neither! :S

They wouldn't be over riding the doctor by giving you the results, you have a right to any/all results, & if he has given you someone else's result you can just double check.....Ring them & say:

'Just to confirm, what were my blood results? I can't remember what the doctor said.'

The other possibility is that the blood results are correct but he had the case file of the other patient & she may have been further along so the small amount would show a decrease (miscarriage).

I don't think your grasping at straws at all

Ask your GP to put in a complaint on your behalf too, because getting your name wrong whilst dealing with sensitive stuff like this is inexcusable ! If any of us were in the same position we'd be freaking out right now. It's not fair on you or OH.

I hope it gets sorted soon.

Goodness me! You'd think that being EPAU staff they wouldn't be so blooming insensitive and inadequate! They sound terribly disorganized when I was at my local EPAU they never ever told me anything without first confirming my name and date of birth. You should complain, because if people don't complain then it won't get sorted out.
