I am delayed by 4 days for my periods. I have taken several P-test they say it is negative. However i got a HCG test done and the result is less than <1.20. Am i pregnant or is it to early to say anything and i should go for another test. Please advice!

Hello Anonymous,

Where did you have the blood hCG test done? You tested too early.

An hCG level of less than 5mIU/ml is considered negative for pregnancy, and anything above 25mIU/ml is considered positive for pregnancy.

Levels can first be detected by a blood test about 11 days after conception and about 12 – 14 days after conception by a urine test. In general the hCG levels will double every 72 hours. The level will reach its peak in the first 8 – 11 weeks of pregnancy and then will decline and level off for the remainder of the pregnancy.

Wait until your period is late by at least seven days before testing again.
