Pregnancy test result

Patient: My period is late for 3 days. i conducted pregnancy blood test 2days ago. my B-HCG showed 0.1 mIU/ml is this positive or negative?

Symptoms: Late period

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.Little bit of irregularity in periods can occur due to many causes.Usually menstrual cycle with length of 21 days to 35 days should be considered as normal only.Usually in blood test for pregnancy, beta HCG levels below 5 mIU/ml should be considered as negative for pregnancy.So, according to this, the possibility of pregnancy is less in your case.Take care.
