i am 4 weeks and 3 days past my last menstrual period .. my choriogonadotropin intact+beta subunit reading is A97 .. is that low for this stage of my pregnancy does it indicate a risk of miscarriage

Dr Brims :

Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek

Dr Brims :

That beta HCG level is normal for this stage in pregnancy

Dr Brims :

It is usually 50-100 at that stage

Customer:

so this is a healthy range for 32 days post last menstrual period?

Dr Brims :

How long did your cycle last?

I ask because after three positive home pregnancy tests i went to the doctor today who did a urine strip and said i was NOT pregnant .. she then sent me for blood work and the A97 IU/L was the reading indicating a positive result

Customer:

29 days

Customer:

my period lasted for or five days

Dr Brims :
