Hi XXXXXXX,
Thanks for posting your query.
An hCG level of less than 5mIU/ml is considered negative for pregnancy, and anything above 25mIU/ml is considered positive for pregnancy & it comes positive after 11th day of fertilization.
So one thing is confirm that you are not pregnant.
In between, you were having spotting; it can be due to naturogest.
Naturogest is hormonal tablet containing progesterone & you are taking it continuously since 30/8 till now, due to which you are not getting your periods.
I will advise you to consult your gynaecologist to stop this medication, so that you can get your period & can plan for next cycle.
I hope your query has been answered.
