HCG Count

I am standing on day 33 - Tested for pregnancy and it was negative. The lady at the lap said the count was 0.4.

I spoke to a nurse, and asked advise. She said that i could either be late from the laparoscopy that I had, thats delaying my period - or I could or might still be preggies and that it is way to early as I could have ovulated at any time..

Is it still possible for the count to go from a 0.4 to a pregnancy positive ..

Dear Need Advice

I would advise that you repeat the test and should the next test still be negative I would consider inducing a period by means of Provera or Primolut N. However, your doctor may need to do a scan to exclude the possibility of an ovarian cyst.
