above 5 is considered pregnant as women carries 0-5 in there system at any given time that is why they only consider 6 pregnant...

the hospitals in navada are the same here, NYC ...some doctors dont consider till 25 mui in your system but that is a whole other story. As many times until you hit 25 you could have a chemical so in the past alot of doctors wouldnt let you know till you hit 25 mui and alot of hospitals and docs still go by that, which I think is seriously nuts but ..

but i agree as taking a test that picks up 5 will give tons of people heart ache for chemicals that do not exists or making someone think there pregnant only to break there hearts.

I think these new test picking up 5 mui is playing on women desperate to see a line.
I like them because they detect early enough for me to get on medications.

The doctors say 5 and above is positive. Anything below is negitive. At the ER 25 is positive.

But, it is heartbreaking to have chemical losses. I have had a few and was picked up by blood work early on. That's how I knew I was ever pregnant in first place.

Everyone has own opinion on it. But, I find it hard when women get false positives, no confirmation on another test or blood work.


I still want these, look pretty cool OP.
honestly your misinterpreting the labs, im not trying to argue it but I know that its above 5 as we have 5 in our bodies...that would be hard to tell if any women is pregnant then if they said 5 is positive, honestly think about that for a minute....if they said 5 is positive then all women would be pregnant....its higher then five...grab a lab report and look 0-5 greater then is positive....All hospitals and doctors aside from the few who do 25, again insane....., ..

menopausal women actually have a quant of 9 or above at all times as well.

in America there is a quantitative test 0-5 neg, large then five pos, and and qualitative test 25 and above....that is all America

in the uk i think some places are 25 other 50 and some even 100....that would drive me bonkers right now as im ttc for 3 yrs

found this

http://www.pregnancylab.net/pregnancy-tests/

ere are a few facts that most ED providers are unlikely to know about hCG testing:

hCG appears in blood before urine, sometimes up to 5 days earlier.
The claimed analytical sensitivity of most qualitative urine hCG tests is 25 IU/L whereas the quantitative blood assays are sensitive to 1-2 IU/L (commonly pregnancy is defined by greater than 5 IU/L).
Even though common qualitative urine tests claim 99+% accuracy in determining pregnancy status, a recent study suggests that they are actually only 99% sensitive at an hCG concentration of 150-225 IU/L.
There is a potential window of 3 to 7 days during the first trimester of pregnancy where a quantitative blood test will detect hCG while the qualitative urine test might not.
Ectopic pregnancies can occur at hCG concentrations below what is detectable by current qualitative methods.
In one study of over 11,700 urine samples, 69 (0.5%) of ED hCG test results were erroneous due to documentation errors, inherent deficiencies in qualitative tests or because the hCG concentration was below the level of detection.

Hope this helps

I hate to tell you this but we carry up to 5 mui at all given times 0-5 different times of the day when not pregnant is normal...

that leaflet will say what it needs to say to get sold..

get ur labs paper from the lab and it will read

0-5 not pregnant
it doesnt mean ur not, it can rise but it is not considered pregnant simply because we have 5 mui in our bodies anyway,,,they want it to be over 5 to prove pregnancy for that reason...

is that explained better? I know i have a hard time explaining stuff sometimes

It could be possible FRER is not as sensitive as that other test which can mean this was a false negitive.

You can get positive OPK while pregnant. Or right before AF is due. Or maybe your ovulating now or close to it. Always BD just in case. Do you chart?
