4 wk pregnant at 3 days of pink spotting. Hcg was 59 at 3 weeks 6 days. Doc thinks implantation. Numbers ok? Worried about miscarriage.
Need serial betaHCG: Your blood betaHCG of 59 seems a bit low and your concerns are understandable.

Should I still be worried about pregnancy after 4 negative urine tests taken about 2 months after sex and 3 periods?
Had unprotected sex 3 weeks before expected period, 2-3 days after period ended, about 6 days before ovulation. Should I be worried about pregnancy?
Not if you're...: Not if you're trying to get pregnant. Otherwise, yes. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

If not getting my period and mutliple home pregnancy tests saying I am not pregnant, at want point should I see a doctor (e.G., 1 week late, 2 wks, )?
Missed period: I have always advised patients to be patient! usually, i would wait up to three months after a missed period to have an evaluation as there are many reasons for missing periods other than pregnancy. If pregnancy does not occur and there is no period after 2-3 months, then your doctor will probably want to do a thorough investigation as to why your periods are not coming. ...Read more
