Missed taking the pill on scheduled time, had sex in the meantime. Had period on expected date. Is there a pregnancy chance?

Hi. I m a 21 year old woman. I was on the combined pill but took two pills ( 12 hours late) on week two. I had sex in the meantime. I experienced spotting a week later. 8 days after intercourse I did a blood betaHCG and it was at 1 mui. 12 days after intercourse I went there again and it was still at 1 mui. 19 days after sex I had another beta hcg and it was at 2 mui (in a different lab). 21 days after sex I had another betahcg (yet in a different lab) and it was at 1.2 mui. I also had an ultrasound and gynecological exam done and it shwed that my uterine cavity was empty and that I had no signs of pregnancy. I also had my period on the expected date (14 days after sex) and there was red, live blood, but it was less than usual. Do you think I can be pregnant?

Hi there,
Welcome to HCM.
It does not look like you are pregnant. Less flow of blood could be due to the stress you have had regarding this episode. HCG levels less than 5 mui is considered negative for pregnancy. Thanks.
