Hi doctor,

I am a 26 year old female. My LMP was on the 8th of last month. I missed my period this month. I have done a home pregnancy test on the 10th of this month, and I have seen a faint line which was confusing. So, I took a beta hCG blood test and got the result as 54.50 mlU/mL. Could you please let me know whether I am pregnant or not? I have attached the reports.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your question and understood your concern. I have reviewed the reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • The pregnancy is definitely there. However, I will suggest you get a repeat beta hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) test after 48 hours of the previous sample. If an increase is more than double in 48 hours, then it is a viable pregnancy. Otherwise ectopic and chemical pregnancy should be ruled out.

Hope you found the answer helpful. Regards.

Hi doctor,

Thank you very much for your suggestion. As per your advice, I have taken hCG test after 48 hours and the result was 184 mlU/mL. I am attaching both the reports. Please advise.

I have seen the reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • The increase in the beta hCG levels is more than double in 48 hours. So, it is most likely a viable intrauterine pregnancy.
