URGENT!!! Positive low HCG levels could this be a false preg
Please could you help me, i found out on monday that i was pregnant but they said that i had to return in 48hrs for another test to confirm my beta hcg was 15 on monday and then 17.8 on wednesday.
my gp said that this was not normal and that my hcg should have doubled.
Please help me is there anything else that can give you a positive HCG reading other then other medication which i have not been on.
I really would appreciate you help and advice.

It sounds like a non-viable\ pregnancy - either a missed abortion or an ectopic pregnancy.
