    Default HELP! Levels 114 and dr said not pregnant

    My LMP was 21 July and I ovulated on 1 August (according to OPK, bbt and ff) and I got my first positive HPT at 10dpo.

    I had bloods drawn at what would be 4 weeks pregnant and my levels were 114. My GP rang with the results and said it "means nothing" and basically suggesting I'm not pregnant.

    Could someone please provide their thoughts on this? I'm quite upset with my GP at the moment.

    I think if you have hcg then you are pregnant. Is your doctor doing another blood test in a day or two to see if they have risen?

    Can you get another test, and see a different doc?

    I was just looking at an article, and it said:
    • An hCG level of less than 5mIU/ml is considered negative for pregnancy, and anything above 25mIU/ml is considered positive for pregnancy.

    Guideline to hCG levels during pregnancy:

    hCG levels in weeks from LMP (gestational age)* :

    3 weeks LMP: 5 – 50 mIU/ml
    4 weeks LMP: 5 – 426 mIU/ml
    5 weeks LMP: 18 – 7,340 mIU/ml
    6 weeks LMP: 1,080 – 56,500 mIU/ml
    7 – 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 – 229,000 mIU/ml
    9 – 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 – 288,000 mIU/ml
    13 – 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 – 254,000 mIU/ml
    17 – 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 – 165,400 mIU/ml
    25 – 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 – 117,000 mIU/ml
    Non-pregnant females: <5.0 mIU/ml
    Postmenopausal females: <9.5 mIU/ml

    The whole article is good reading, might give you some additional info?

    No other bloods tests requested. I have an ultrasound on the 29th so I can only hope we see something.

    I would ask for another blood test to compare. I know it would put my mind at ease if it were me.

    I refuse to go back to see my GP. We've had issues with him before and now to tell me I'm not pregnant and not do any follow up has been the straw that broke the camels back.

    We're definitely going to find ourselves a new GP who at least has some common sense. This guy is a jerk and I've put up with him for far too long

    Hcg of around 100 is actually what my fs likes to see at 4 weeks so you are doing well! I think your gp is an idiot. Clearly you are pregnant with a level like that, if he was concerned about viability or something else then he should have said that not made you feel like you aren't pregnant. Definitely find a new gp and relax Hun, you are utd!!!

    Your GP sounds like an idiot!!! My first blood test for this pregnancy was like 55 just on 4 weeks and I'm now 32 weeks pregnant.

    Good luck for your scan xx
