Post subject: hcg level
At 5 weeks my hcg level was 35 and i had an ultrasound and sonogram done they say they see nothing wrong. I am worried about ectopic and this morning i had some brownish spotting. Has anyone else had a low hcg level early in prgnancy? they say that i am really early like 2-3 weeks pregnant that's minus the two weeks it takes for your cycle to get to ovulation

Post subject: Same situation
Hi, I hope this helps. I found out I was pregnant on saturday 19th Jan, but started having sharp pain on my right side on tuesday. On friday I was referred to my Early Pregnancy Unit incase the pregnancy was ectopic, where I had an ultrasound but they couldn't see any sac or sign of pregnancy, so I was given a blood test. Although friday I should have been exactly 5 weeks, my hormone level was 300 which I was I was told is really low. So I had to go back yesterday on sunday for another blood test which showed my levels have doubled to 600. Although this is a good sign, the doctor told me it is still low so I have to go back for another blood test on wednesday. She told me that if the levels have doubled, it indicated the pregnancy it probably ok. However, if they level off or do not increase by at least 60% then it is likely to be ectopic. The doctor also told me that until the hcg has reached about 1500 nothing can be picked up on the scan, so I just have my fingers crossed that wednesday's test will show a doubled hormone level.
