My wife blood test is beta hcg 10.5

Patient: My wife blood test is beta hcg 10.5. Dr told it is chemical pregnancy. you should take again bete hcg test after 48 hrs.my is pregnant or not

 

 

Symptoms: Abdominal pain and breast pain last 10 days

 

 

Doctor: Hello.Thanks for the query.A chemical pregnancy is one where the pregnancy result is positive or mildly positive, but there is no evidence of a sac anywhere on ultrasound to call it a pregnancy. On repeating the test after 48 hours, we expect the value of hCG to rise, in such a case we have a hope of a pregnancy, if the levels fall, it will be a chemical pregnancy and no further progress. The value of 10.5 is perhaps too low to call it a pregnancy right now.Hope this helped.Good luck.Regards
