    Hormone levels high but nothing seen in ultrasound
    princessjaf posted:
    I recently confirmed with my doctor that I was approx. 6 weeks pregnant. A few days ago I had a bright red clot looking thing, very small, but it worried me enough to call my doctor. I was sent to the ER. I made the mistake of going to an urgent care and not ER so there was no OB on call.
    My blood was tested, and my levels were at 4000 I was told. An ultrasound was also done but I was told they could see no evidence of a pregnancy at all - either in the right place or in the wrong place. I wasn't given any more information on what this meant. I had another blood test today but do not know the results - I see an OB tomorrow.

    How can no evidence of a pregnancy be seen at about 6 weeks and normal levels of the hormone? I have been so confused and worried these past couple days.

    Thank you to anyone who responds.
