    The end of june I ended up in the hospital because I had kidney stones and was dehydrated. I was told in the hospital that I was pregnant and it was from a blood test they did, the urin came back neg. I ask them to repeat the blood test they did, the HCG levels came back below 0 and I was sent home. The following week I asked my doc to repeat the blood test just to be save and that test the HCG levels came back a 2. Its still neg bc I know the levels have to be higher the a 5 but how can one test be positive? I had another test done and still waiting for the results. Can anyone help??

    I don't understand what you are wanting help for? Your blood test came back positive and the urine test came back negative, correct? (As of today) this was over 3 weeks ago, correct? Did you have a missed period? What is the doctor telling you?

    You said you asked your doc to repeat the test which is why I assumed you were in contact with your OB - you must be using your regular PCP, right? Have you taken a home pregnancy test? Perhaps you should contact your OB and tell him/her what is going on. They may be able to better assist than your PCP, since they specialize in OB/GYN.
