Hi, thanks for writing.. I understand your concern..
Implantation bleed occurs in and around the expected period which is quite normal. If there is ongoing bleeding and pain abdomen, then you need to worry. Since you have doubling of hcg, it means the it is a healthy growing pregnancy mostly in the uterus. At around 4-5 weeks, it is difficult to see an intrauterine sac. So get a scan repeated after 2 weeks to see for fetal pole and cardiac activity. Since you were treated for TB you need not worry about that too. Hope I have answered your query. Good day..
