Q: Is a test result of HCG level of 25 mIU ML consider to be pregnant

Doctor

A:   An hCG level of less than 5mIU/ml is considered negative for pregnancy, and anything above 25mIU/ml is considered positive for pregnancy. However, since your hCG level is 25 mIU/ml, you may require a repeat test after 48-72 hours. hCG levels should double every 3 to 3 days in pregnancy.
