why do i have an amount of HCG in my blood if i am not pregnant?
hello ladies .. i am new here ..
just to introduce myself .. Hana (27) .. happily married since January.2009 .. TTC since May.2009
we dont have any firtility issues at all .. after we did many tests ..
last month my AF was late for 2 weeks, i tested with clear blue HPT & another type of HPT (pink dye)
clear blue gave a 2 positives .. the other one negative .. so i went to my dr .. did a blood work .. she said you have a very little amount of HCG in your blood .. (<2.00) so it is NEGATIVE .. then AF showed on March.10
i used Clomid 50mg (CD2-CD6) .. OPKs .. Pinapple Core ..
so i am today 14 DPO .. i started use HPTs since 10 DPO .. i bought 5 types of HPTs (all pink dyes)
all of them gave me a very faint second line .. that get darker in an hour ..
so i was testing daily .. but still very faint line came up .. i thought it will get darker if test on 13 DPO ..
but NO !!
so i went to do a blood work ..
still have an amount of HCG =( ................ (2.00)
please tell me why ??????
i know that most HPTs cant sense HCG until it is 20 or more .. how come all my HPTs could read amount of < 2.00 of HCG
i cant trust any kind of HPT now =(
feel so sad & shocked .. i thought i am pregnant after i saw all positives
is it posiible that i am still have a chance to be pregnant ????
i am on CD30 .. my cycle usually 30 - 33 days
please anybody know why this happened to me ???

Did your doctor say anything to you about why this would happen? The only times I've heard about hcg still being in one's system was after a miscarriage or after an hcg trigger shot. Is it possible you had a chem pregnancy and it's still there???TTC since Dec 09, diagnosed with PCOS Jan 09.

It's normal to have small amounts of hcg throughout your cycle. I have consistently had betas that were between 1 and 2.....my RE considers anything under a 2 negative, anything over a 2 as positive.
Not sure why you would be getting positives on the pink dye tests......I ALWAYS get light positives on blue dye tests, pregnancy or no.....so I wouldn't be surprised about that, but the pink dye ones are usually pretty good (although some brands will have a light line show up later, so make sure you are reading it before the time limit)Penny

12 DPO I went and had a HCG drawn. It was only 1.4. Two days later my bbs was so sore I couldnt stand it. Went to walmart and got a test saw a VERY light second line. I knew I was pregnant..but couldnt convience hubby..so I went to have a hcg level drawn again. It waas 11.4. The Day I got the 1.4 HCG level I just newww I was pregnant...even the techs said..well you shoul have O hcg in ur blood if u arnt pregnant..but we still cant say its positive. Has to be over 5. I even told hubby that day...I know im pregnant..cried and everything. Then 2 days later....whhhaaa laaa! PREGNANT! My body just had started making enough HCG to detect it on the beta quant. So needless to say...I found out I was pregnant...when I was between 1 week and 2 weeks. Very VERY early. So its been a very LOOOONGG 12 weeeks for me =) Good luck!
