I had my blood hcg levels checked yesterday due to a missed period. I am currently on cycle day 44 but believe I ovulated 2 weeks later this cycle. My level is 27. I am currently breastfeeding. My physician told me a level of 27 is too low. He also said the slight increase is most likely due to a surg in hormones associated with breastfeeding. I have had a semi regular menstrual cycle since 2 months postpartum. Does breastfeeding really affect hcg??? Could I be pregnant?
you are pregnant
you need serial hcg's and ultrasounds to accurately determine how far pregnant you are
at 7 months postpartum, your hcg should be zero
