    Default Positive or Negative?

    This is the result of a Blood Test for Pregnancy. Big Question: Is it Positive or Negative? (...and why can't these pea brains not state that there? )

    Anybody?



    QUIMICA SANGUINEA
    SUBUNIDAD BHCG 24.3 < 5.0 * mUI/mL
    * En ptes sanos, para embarazo anexos

    Errm... The gynecologist just saw the result and she "whatsapped" us telling us "CONGRATS", "Efectivamente embarazado!!!"."Since around two weeks..."

    Tashi's explanation makes more sense to me though. Do they measure differently in the Dominican Republic?

    If however she is in the less than 1 week range given on the test then she may be pregnant and it may be viable.

    Get a "pee on a stick" test at the pharmacy.

    The more sensitive ones are + even before missing a period and all will be positive by 7 days late.

    We did. Yesterday. The second row became visible but still faded so we decided to go for the blood test today.

    It is positive. However, with those levels and the fading second line at 8 days past her period was due, it may sadly result in an early miscarriage... but hopefully not!! Hope to hear of levels rising soon.

    that's because it does not always last, so to speak. many women miscarry in the first month of pregnancy without even knowing it.

    Anything under 5 is considered negative. Anything between 5 and 50 is normal during first 3 weeks after conception. Levels generally double every 48 to 72 hours.

    The numbers usually level off around the end of the first trimester.
