    Default HCG levels - what's considered bad?

    So I'm between 4-5weeks and my HCG is 54.. Is that bad? She wants me to have repeat bloods on Monday but didn't really say much more :-/

    When I had my first blood test at 4 weeks, my HCG was 17! I am now 18 weeks pregnant...

    It's a low number for between 4-5 weeks. Unless you ovulated later than you thought. I think best to repeat the test and FX the levels have doubled.

    The important thing is the numbers increase, hence why your doctor wants another test.

    I checked this chart and you're well within range. Let us know how things go.

    I did ovulate on CD23 so maybe I'm just 4 weeks?

    If u ovulated on cd23 ur not 4 weeks pregnant until cd37. (2 weeks after ovulation) what day of ur cycle r u on now? Sounds like u might be just under 4 weeks if u ovulated that late?

    If ur cd38 today then ur technically 4 weeks & 1 day pregnant today based on u ovulating on day 23. What day of ur cycle were u when u had the blood test? U can really only go by the start of ur period if u have a 28 day cycle and ovulate on day 14. If ur cycle is longer then ur dates r pushed back
