Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I had unprotected sex, and a few hours later, I took i-Pill. I got slight bleeding only for one day. I got a urine pregnancy test done thrice, and it was negative. My beta hCG was less than 2.3 mlU/ml. Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

I have reviewed your reports (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity), and everything seems fine. Have you consulted a gynecologist or a radiologist for the ultrasound? Based on your complaints and examinations, I do not think you are pregnant. Still, I suggest you visit your physician so that the doctor can perform a manual inspection of your reproductive organs and offer some laboratory tests.

I hope this information will help.
