Thanks for query,
Her pregnancy test shows that she is pregnant.
Beta HCG levels vary according to the gestational age. if it is less than 10 mIU she has no pregnancy.They are typically about 100 mIU/ml 14 days after ovulation in a healthy single pregnancy. They should double every 48- 72 hours in a healthy pregnancy.
Her pain of back & leg has no relation to pregnancy.
Do not take medicines for it.

Hello r.venkatesh85
welcome to HCM
First regarding Pregnancy test, Home pregnancy test shows pregnancy and blood b HCG level of 667.4 indicates she is of 4-5 weeks pregnant. Now lower abdominal pain, back ache and pain in leg are normally symptoms of early pregnancy which becomes normal by itself in due course of time
If you need medication take paracetamol and consult your gynacologist for routine check-ups
