But 3 days before I got my period. First date of period 23rd XXXXXXX 2018 and last date of period is 25th XXXXXXX 2018.

This period came after 44 days of my last one that happened on 11 Dec 2018.

Is pregnant possible even now after getting my Period for 3 days?? Is it my period or something else???

I took my blood test on the 3rd day of my period on 25th XXXXXXX 2018. Is it possible I can be pregnant even after Period??

Brief Answer:
Get your pelvic ultrasound.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Sorry for the delay in my response.
Yes,you are pregnant though you had your 3 days proper menses but I think you are pregnant before your menses.
So you have to repeat blood beta hcg ( for failing pregnancy).
You can go for pelvic ultrasound to rule out pregnancy.
Because in your case beta hcg positive which shows you are pregnant.
Are you taking any medications?
Hope to hear from you soon.
Good luck

Hi Mam,
Thanks for your mail with even more clear reply. Please clear my below queries: pregnancy still continue after 3 days of period? Heavy flow happened on 23rd XXXXXXX after stomach pain the previous night.
2. If Menses happened on 23rd XXXXXXX for 3 days until 25th XXXXXXX How much should be the value of Beta HCG in case if it was miscarriage. My blood test on 25th XXXXXXX on last day of period shows 55.85 miu/ml. If it was miscarriage, will the value drop immediately to less than 5?? How my value shows 55.85?? Is this report can be false??
3. Will the baby be healthy if the pregnancy after 3 days of menses is still confirmed in today's test.

Please be informed I have given for blood beta HCG test again today morning as you suggested in empty stomach. Will get result today evening and will share you report.

Kindly reply my above queries

Brief Answer:
Explained below.

Detailed Answer:
Sorry for the delay in my response.
Pregnancy may occur after period also or most likely you were pregnant before your menses.
Immediately hcg level did not reached 5 ,repeat value give the correct idea.
You must get your pelvic ultrasound to see foetal well being or cause of bleeding and positive blood beta hcg.
Maybe value of hcg is false positive.
Hope found useful.
Good luck.
