U need to ask your : Doc and do what your doc says, personally I do not think that level is low at 4 wks 5 days, i consider anything over 10 normal, unless you had a previous one and the level has significantly dropped or you have a history of miscarriages , if u have intercourse some will come out and it is messy to start out with so if i had u on it i would say no and your husband or partner can absorb some of it. ...Read more
