Patient :I am 5 1/2 weeks pregnant. I had my HCG levels tested and it shows as 688. My doctor told me that it should be more than 1500 by this time. She recommended for a scan after 3 to 4 days. I don't have any abdominal pain or any spotting. I am kind of worried as I had a missed abortion because of blighted ovum before an year. Also I have been taking thyroid tablet for the past 5 years and the range is normal. Should I need to wait for 1 or 2 weeks to get correct result?
