Dr. Natasha :

hello

Dr. Natasha :

welcome to the chat

Dr. Natasha :

are you still there?

Dr. Natasha :

If so please enter the chat and say hello

Dr. Natasha :

do you know what the blood bhcg test level was?

Customer:

hi! no unfortunately not

Dr. Natasha :

well, the urine test threshold is pretty low

Dr. Natasha :

meaning that a level of about 50 will trigger a positive urine test

Customer:

so do you think i am still pregnant

Dr. Natasha :

So you may have a very low blood test- indicative of pregnancy which may not be progressing properly, but the urine test can be still high

Dr. Natasha :

you actually need to get another BLOOD test

Dr. Natasha :

if it is doubling normally, then you are still pregnant

Customer:

feeling queasy

Dr. Natasha :

if it is flatlining or tapering down, then you are no longer pregnant

Dr. Natasha :

you need to get another quant bhcg

Customer:

so can the hormone levels still be in the urine 6 days later to give a false positive result?

Dr. Natasha :

yes

Customer:

ok thank you so much. Test is giving me a strong positive result line so it's a little confusing

Dr. Natasha :

Well, I hope he could be wrong, it does happen

Dr. Natasha :

but getting another quant bhcg will tell you what you need to know

Dr. Natasha :

Baby dust!

Customer:

ok. Happy with that answer. Thank you!

Dr. Natasha :

Customer:

Yes

Dr. Natasha :

I will check in with you in 1 week to see how you are :-)
