Question

HCG Test Confusion please Help

Hi Ladies! I am new here. Please advise.

I am 16 /17 dpo today. I have mild PCOS and this longer cycles of 30 - 33 days.
My last AF (Aunt Flo - menstruation/period) was on July 15. I am sure I ovulated on 02 / 03 Aug as I checked with OPK.
I was all crampy, had sore nips had pinching /pulling sensation on 14 and 15 August. Have had nausea and increase bowel movements since then.
Tested on 18 Aug morning and could see a faint line so did a Beta HCG which came out to be only 6.8.

I am very confused. I got another beta HCG Test done today and but result is only 7.8. only 1 point increased ??

Is it bad????

Hi! I’ve heard that a slow-rising HCG may mean this one isn’t sticking as it should. I’ve had two chemicals this year and the tests barely had faint lines and then they started to fade. You might just have to wait a couple more days and see what happens... sorry I can’t be any more help!

They say your HcG should double every 2-3 days, going off that, you should have had a level of 10+. That said, it's early days still. Will you be having another blood draw in a few days?
