Ok I need some advice please. On June 24th I went for a pregnancy Blood test after my urine test showed up negative, my doc gave me a script for some prenatial plus vitamins an by the end of the day I got the results back from the blood work. My doc said it was under 1 an was conclusive which ment a definite negative. Well it is July 10th and I still have not had my period and have all the symptoms so they ordered another blood test. When I called the doc told me it came back inconclusive and is now reading a 2, she wants me to go back on Monday the 15th to repeat the blood work so I am. Is their a chance I could still be pregnant? My Doc also told me she seen one other case where it did the same thing and she was definetly pregnant the only thing is like I asked my doctor if I am I would be 7 weeks along so the results should be higher if so then what its doing she said some women are "slow risers" but still go and have healthy babies. She said we will see what Monday shows an go from their on if I will go for an ultrasound or not. What do you all think? I have had all the symptoms possible for the last four weeks and I feel pregnant. Thanks for your time.

I have heard of slow risers also. That's hard...you'll have to wait until Monday. Or you could get a second opinion?....

Thanks that gives me a little more hope. I am just going to wait until Monday and see what the test results show, hoping that it comes up that my level has gone up to what it should be.

Most labs consider an hcg level of 5 or below negative. It is very common to have some level of hcg present in your system at any time. In pregnancy though your hcg does start off low, it should be doubling every 2-3 days even if it was rising slowly.
