  • But EPT urine test ( you can buy in the drug store) is accurate if you get a postivie result. Sometimes you can get a false negative, but never a false positive.

  • I did a pregnancy test first, and it was positive. However, to confirm it, I went and got a blood test done. I was able to call and get my results like 3hrs later. There are some places that may let you know sooner. You may call a free clinic near you or a Planned Parenthood or something. Good luck!

  • Levels should be:
    Guideline to hCG levels during pregnancy:
    hCG levels in weeks from LMP (gestational age)* :

    3 weeks LMP: 5 - 50 mIU/ml
    4 weeks LMP: 5 - 426 mIU/ml
    5 weeks LMP: 18 - 7,340 mIU/ml
    6 weeks LMP: 1,080 - 56,500 mIU/ml
    7 - 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 - 229,000 mIU/ml
    9 - 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 - 288,000 mIU/ml
    13 - 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 - 254,000 mIU/ml
    17 - 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 - 165,400 mIU/ml
    25 - 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 - 117,000 mIU/ml
    Non-pregnant females: <5.0 mIU/ml
    Postmenopausal females: <9.5 mIU/ml
    * These numbers are just a GUIDELINE-- every woman’s level of hCG can rise differently. It is not necessarily the level that matters but rather the change in the level.they should only take 2 days at the most
