Brief Answer:
Not Pregnancy

Detailed Answer:

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) Serum beta hCG levels of 2 or 3 are not pregnant levels.

2) There is no chance of pregnancy.

3) The periods do get delayed after surgical abortion.

4) Please wait for one week. You are likely to get periods by then.

5) I recommend using contraception if you are not intending pregnancy.

Let me know if you have any more doubts.
