Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The HCG level suggests that you are pregnant. Just one time test is not enough to comment if the pregnancy is going on smoothly. You should also consider getting serial HCG levels tested. Doubling up of the hormone levels in 48-72 hours will show that pregnancy is going on smoothly. If levels are not adequate, then external hormonal supplements should be considered to be started to help you in preventing miscarriage/threatened abortion. An ultrasound scan done will help to confirm the gestational age. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Avoid any heavy work. Avoid lifting heavy objects and climbing stairs or standing for long periods of time. Look out for early danger signs like bleeding/spotting, increasing intensity of abdominal cramps and back pain etc. Report any unusual symptoms immediately to your treating doctor/gynecologist. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist.
Take care.
