LOW HCG levels and Progesterone Levels

Can anyone advise me.
I previously went to A and E due to pain in my right ovary (they suspected ectopic pregnancy), so they requested external and internal scans. However the scan the next morning at the hospital showed nothing. However pregnancy test at the hospital and home kit is positive.
I am really early on (only 5 weeks pregnant by lmp) says the dr.

The hospital just called me and they want me to come in tomorrow to have more blood test and check my hCG levels and my progesterone to check if they have increased.
My current levels are:
HCG: 42

has anyone had such low levels?
I'm so worŕied.

I'm still waiting on the hospital to feedback the results.

I hope they don't keep you waiting long for your results OP, my hcg levels were only 77 at what should have been 6 weeks, I also had a scan as they thought they should be able to see something and they couldn't see anything- not even a sac. My hcg did double as normal and ten days later they could see a baby on the scan. They thought I was having a early mc but I am now 29 weeks pregnant. I have everything crossed for you x

That's brilliant news!! So pleased for you smile Have they booked you in for a re-scan?

Now the hospital is puzzled,as they thought it was ectopic they said they need to locate the pregnancy, so they booked me in for a scan on Monday smile and more bloodshmm

Did they say which ovary you ovulated from? In both my pregnancies I had pain in the ovary I ovulated from, they also thought I had an ectopic due to the pain and nothing on the scan and low hcg, I don't want to get your hopes up but hopefully you will have more answers on Monday, it's good they are keeping a close eye on you though and if the pain gets worse I would call them straight away, I have everything crossed for you x

Hope all goes well, let us know how you get on. I had an ectopic and they spotted it on the first scan so fingers crossed you'll be fine xxx
