HCG LEVEL 3
Hi, My doctors office considers a hcg level of 3 or higher pregnant. Ok here is the deal. I ovulated 6 days ago. ANd today I went in for a HCG level and it was a 3. Nurse said I am pregnant but just implanted. Have you had a low level of hcg of 3 at 6dpo? I had a miscarriage a few months back. And my hcg level went to 0 and I always thaught a hcg level had to be 5 or higher to be pregnant, but according to my doctors office its 3 or higher. HELP

Universally, yes your hCG should be 5 or higher. I'm kinda curious why you had blood work done this early though. Usually it's done at 14 DPO to avoid confusion like this. Wait a few days and go back. If your levels are the same (or lower) you know you're not pregnant. If they raise, you know you are.

Hi Clysta, did your reading go up? I tested a reading of 3 today on a 10 days past a day 3 transfer. I am going for retest 2 days later. Need a miracle.

Most people implant between 6-12dpo I think so it would be too early to get an accurate result, even with a blood test. I would wait until at least 12dpo and go for another test. Good luck!! And I thought anything above a level 5 was positive as well.

Jojo0329...Did your level 3 hcg turn out to be a pregnancy??? I just got told today (11dpo) that my level is a 3 too. So I'm curious how yours turned out. I THINK, just from my temps, that I just implanted yesterday so I'm hoping it was just too early, but I know the nurse said me chances aren't good. Please share your experience. Thank you!
