    Default Lower then expected hcg levels??

    Hi ladies,


    So I've found I was pregnant via blood test on the 8th of this month
    The first dr we saw said yes everything this fine with the results ,
    I felt that he kind of rushed us so I decided to get a second opinion from a female dr she had some concerns for my hcg leves being to low


    when I had the blood test I would of been 4 weeks and couple of days, the results came back with 433 level which indicates a 1-2 or 2-3 weeks mark


    Just posting this to see if other women have experienced this and ended up having a healthy pregnancy.


    We have gotten an updated blood test to see if the count level has gone up

    That's a great number for 4 and a bit weeks. My IVF doctor likes over 100 at 16dpo which is the equivalent of 4w2d.

    This doesn't seem low for four weeks? At four weeks and two days mine was just 89. This was an ectopic and I was unaware. I wish they had have done an early scan to actually check why my numbers were so low instead of telling me to wait and see. I kept getting it checked and it rose significantly over a week. On the day I was admitted into hospital with a ruptured tube it had risen to nearly 4000.
    Ask for a scan if you're concerned. Are you calculating from the first day of your last period? If so 400+ would be normal at that stage.

    I agree with the others, that number doesn't sound too low? If the blood test was a few weeks ago why don't you ask for a scan to see what is happening?
