    At my clinic, any result >5 is technically a positive test. They like to see the number >100 at the final BT, however if the hcg level is lower, they will repeat your BT in 2 days time. The doubling rate is actually more important than the number itself. If you check the betabase website you will see that live births have resulted from initial BT results of 5.

    If I were you I would not stop the meds until a 2nd BT is done and confirms a non-viable/chemical pregnancy.

    Good luck! I hope your levels do rise & your clinic is proven wrong.

    Definately wait for the second result. If it falls then you have lost nothing. If it rises, well there you go!
