So, I took a trip to the ER today because I started experiencing some pretty strong cramps, pressure, back pain, and a very light flow of red blood... no clots. They did a bunch of blood work, a pelvic, and an internal ultrasound. The blood work was all normal except my Hcg level is only 81... the pelvic was normal and all he said was there was mucus mixed in with the blood and he didn't like it. When it came time for the ultrasound ... it was extremely painful! I've had 4 or 5 of those and they have never been painful, uncomfortable but never painful. I was in tears! The first tech couldn't get a clear picture of my uterus so she had a second tech come in. That lady was brutal and all she kept saying was .. well your uterus is tilted so I need to push in harder to try and get a picture. Then they had the Radiologist come in because she THOUGHT she saw something abnormal. Scared the crap out of me! At this point I was convinced it was a tubal or something else serious because of the way they were acting. But, when the dr came in and said he had no idea what was wrong and that he was referring me to a specialist.. I was left confused. So my question is... If I ovulated when I thought, like on the 16th or 17th of September would a level of 81 be in the normal range? I can't get back to the dr until Oct 11th where they are going to have my progesterone results and do another blood test. The bleeding has calmed down to a light spotting when I wipe and the cramps feel like pressure. Not painful they're just uncomfortable.
