Why would a doctor say that hCG levels in pregnancy can be 500 at 3-4 dpo? This would mean that a urine test would be positive at this point - how?

In brief: Don't know

The HCG typically becomes detectable in the urine about 10 days after conception.
It is not likely that the HCG would be at the level you have been told by 3-4 days after ovulation.
