I have been doing a lot of research online as I am in a similiar situation and according to things i have read it is possible that are hcg levels are not high enough to be detected. Normal levels range from woman to woman and some are as low as 17. The blood test requires a hcg level of at least 50 to detect. So here is baby dust to you that your levels are just too low to pick up yet View Thread
I am a month post Mirena and had a mennstral the entire 4 years I had it. Well here i am exactly 5 days late from my last cycle, sore breast, nausated, slight cramping, bloating and severe fatigue. I have taken 3 tests and 2 appeared negative but when i went back about 5 minutes later they was a slight positive but almost faint enough you can not see it. I have never had this happen before with my other children they were positive immediatly. Do you think maybe I am testing too soon? Could the removal be messing with my cycle and causing all the symptoms? I am extreamly concerned here. I wouldnt mind another baby but the tests are throwing me off here lol.View Thread
