Just thought I would ask the question as confused. I had an early mc on DEC 15th and have not had a period since and it is 14 weeks ago now. I contacted the docs a few weeks ago to raise my concerns and they took a blood test last Tuesday. The results came back that the hormone level was 1998 and the Dr said normally the hormone level should be below 300 (or 30 can't remember). The dr took another blood sample yesterday and she said the hcg level has gone to 20,000 in a week. We discussed me maybe having a cyst on my ovaries hence the no period but would a cyst affect my hcg level that much??? The dr has left a message with the scanning unit at the hospital to see if it is a cyst. Has anyone else experienced the same? If my hcg level is that high would a pregnancy test give me a false reading if I am not pregnant and it is a cyst?
