1st Trimester

Really low HCG - any hope?

I got a positive at home pregnancy test on Tuesday night. I was having sharp pain on my right side last night (Friday night) and went to the ER. The ultrasound showed an ovarian cyst on my right ovary that was likely causing the pain. They couldn’t see any signs of pregnancy on the ultrasound at this time and said I might just be too early or could be miscarriage but my HCG was only 54. According to my LMP I’d be about 5 weeks. Is there any hope? Idk how I could’ve had a positive pregnancy test on Tuesday if my levels were doubling, it would have been so low on Tuesday if it was only 54 last night. 

Re: Really low HCG - any hope?

  • @kcas123 The most important thing about HCG is that it doubles every 48 hours that early in PG.  If they aren't testing your HCG levels every 48 hours to see the doubling effect, then one number by itself will not tell you much, especially that early in PG.
