Good evening, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today

Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 11 days ago.

I am sorry to see that you are bleeding. This can be normal in early pregnancy. Your HCG levels may be low due to early pregnancy, however if they don't rise, or nothing is visible on an ultrasound, there is always a small possibility of a miscarriage unfortunately.

Are you due a further blood test or an early scan?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I should be six weeks but the doctor said my hcg levels were what they would be at 1 or 2 weeks pregnant . Yes I’ve got an ultrasound in a week . However I’ve pretty much stopped bleeding so only really bled for about 2 days do you think it could be fine ?
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 11 days ago.

I think it could be fine, but it is also too early to say.

I’ve done a home pregnancy test and the line is very faint
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 11 days ago.

This is not very accurate to go by sorry, certainly not with measuring your HCG levels. If it becomes negative then that would be suggestive that it has dropped.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Can the pregnancy still be viable if the hcg levels have dropped ?
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 11 days ago.

If they drop, then this suggests that it is not likely to be viable sorry.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
there is pretty much no chance them ?
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 11 days ago.

Unless you know which way your HCG was going, then you don't know.
