My significant other and I had unprotected sex for 2 days, the 3rd day i wasn't sure if I was ready, on the 4th day I took a mornin-after-pill, but the box said I was supposed to take it within the first 3 days of unprotected sex. The next week I started having back aches, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea. I started my period a week early... i was bleeding heavily for about 2 days and on the 3rd day, i'm spotting. I'm not sure if this is bleeding implantation or period. Please someone reply to me?

have no idea how to post my own new thread, so I'm going to post my question here. I had a missed miscarriage and still haven't had my first period since then, I have been having some odd signs of pregnancy, run of the mill things. Yesterday I had a beta quantitative hcg blood test and it came back as 5mIU/L. I've been doing tons of research and finding that under 5 is not pregnant and over 5 is pregnant. So what is exactly 5? I'm so lost for answers and this is such a confusing mess..any help would be wonderful. Thank you.
