I had unprotected sex on the 9th of Jan 2018. My period was due on the 24th and i got a bleeding on the 30th which im not sure if it could be my period. I took a beta HCG on the 16th of Feb and it was <2.39 miu/ml and the took another on the 21st of Feb and it was <2 miu/ml. Could i be pregnant as im having some of the pregnancy symptoms.

Hello. Thank you for writing today.

What makes you think the bleeding you had was not your period?   An hCG level of less than 5 is negative for pregnancy, (a level of more than 25 is positive). If you doubt your results, speak with your doctor.

Can it be a cryptic pregnancy where the hcg level is <2miu/ml because im having some of the pregnancy symptoms. My right side belly swollen than the left side. I took an abdominal ultrasound but the doctor said there is no pregnancy. Im sometimes having a pulling sensation on my stomach. I usually shed a lot of hair but all of a sudden my hair fall has stopped. These things making me woried.

Do you want to be pregnant? If so, you might have convinced yourself you are. Speak to your GYN about your symptoms, (if you haven't already), just to be sure nothing else is going on. But you are obviously not pregnant.
