Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I missed the period last month. My LMP was two months before on the ninth day of the cycle I had protected sex after 10 days of the missed period I had UPT all negative. Yesterday (17 days after a missed period) I had a beta hCG test level is 2.6 also yesterday I got my period (47th day of cycle), but the flow is quite different. Yesterday I got dark brown bleeding, but today I am getting light red colored pinkish bleeding, but clots ate there, and bleeding has a high quantity of mucus. Is it normal? Is beta hCG 2.6 non-pregnant? Please help.

Welcome to

Your beta hCG values are of nonpregnant level, and you have also got periods, so be rest assured that you are not pregnant. Your period was quite delayed, and there are many reasons for irregular or delayed periods like stress, anxiety, thyroid dysfunction, obesity, certain medications, and most crucial PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). Need to undergo specific investigations like ultrasound of lower abdomen, blood for CBC (complete blood count), sugar, TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) and prolactin. Based on the reports, proper treatment will help you to get regular periods.
