Is an hCG blood test accurate about 12 days after sex? Thanks

Is an hCG blood test accurate about 12 days after sex? Thanks

May be too soon: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Doctors post said that 634 hCG level is possible just 3-4 days after sex, but then said it would take about 10 days to reach a level of 25. How?

Doctors post said that 634 hCG level is possible just 3-4 days after sex, but then said it would take about 10 days to reach a level of 25. How?

Need clarification: You're right ... The math isn't adding up. You could not have a level of 634 only 3-4 days after conception. The general rule of thumb is that you can start to test HCG blood levels as early as 10 days after conception. And, that HCG levels double every 48 hours. Neither of those statements is concrete, just general rules. The dr may have meant 25, 000. Ask to have your levels tested again. ...Read more

How accurate is a beta hCG blood test 13 days after sex? Can't go by period, got on Depo after encounter. After how many days is blood test 100%

How accurate is a beta hCG blood test 13 days after sex? Can't go by period, got on Depo after encounter. After how many days is blood test 100%

Call your doctor: Did you tell your doctor you had unprotected sex prior to getting the Depo? Try not to be your own worst enemy. If you had unprotected sex use Plan B or tell your doctor. An IUD could have prevented pregnancy as well. Remember you still need protection from HIV, Herpes, HPV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphyllis and other STDs and should use condoms. Please protect yourself and avoid stress. ...Read more

After 12 days from sex period came for 7 days After 22 days from sex blood test was 1.0 hcg. Is 22 days after sex is enough to do blood hcg test?

After 12 days from sex period came for 7 days After 22 days from sex blood test was 1.0 hcg. Is 22 days after sex is enough to do blood hcg test?

Yes: You had a period after sex. There was no need to test for HCG. Given the HCG level, if you have not had sex again, you are not pregnant. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

Blood test done 28 days after sex. Got hcg 1 out if 5 for amount in my blood, is that due to my birth control? Source: HealthTap, https://www.health

Blood test done 28 days after sex. Got hcg 1 out if 5 for amount in my blood, is that due to my birth control? 

Source: HealthTap, https://www.health

Unclear question: Your birth control prevented a pregnancy, that is why you have a low HCG level.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I have pcos last period over 6mos took a blood hCG test 22 days after sex how accurate?

I have pcos last period over 6mos took a blood hCG test 22 days after sex how accurate?

Accurate: If you have not had a period for 6 months and you have pcos, then the problem is that you are not ovulating. A test at 22 days after intercourse should accurately reflect if you are pregnant or not. If the test is negative, then talk with your doctor about ways to induce ovulation as well as metformin. ...Read more

Took emergency contraception (2hrs after sex), 19 days (2days missed period) later had negative quanti. Hcg blood test. Period still doesn't come. Why?

Took emergency contraception (2hrs after sex), 19 days (2days missed period) later had negative quanti. Hcg blood test. Period still doesn't come. Why?

Delayed period: One of the ways emergency contraception works is by causing the ovulation to be delayed. If the quant HCG is negative 19 days after the event, it's 100% certain that you're not pregnant. It would be safe to wait and see if the period gets back to normal over the next 2 months. If at continued risk of pregnancy, use an effective form of birth control. ...Read more

Could a blood test for hCG ever be wrong if I took it one month after sex?

Could a blood test for hCG ever be wrong if I took it one month after sex?

Life is not perfect: And life is not exact. If a test says pregnant, and there are no symptoms of pregnancy, just recheck another test. If a test says not pregnant, but there are plenty of pregnancy symptoms, just recheck another test. However, the blood test at one month after sex (with no sex since that event) is almost always correct. ...Read more

Not Pregnant: You had a period after your sexual encounter. You are not pregnant. You do not need testing. But, you had testing anyway and it confirms what your body already told you. You are not pregnant. You did not get pregnant. You do not need any further testing this cycle. ...Read more

I only have 2-4 periods a year and had unprotected sex 2.5 weeks ago. Since I can't go by my period, how soon after sex can I do a urine test for hcg?

I only have 2-4 periods a year and had unprotected sex 2.5 weeks ago. Since I can't go by my period, how soon after sex can I do a urine test for hcg?

2 weeks: If you make the asumption that you ovulated the day you had unprotected intercourse then you would most likely have a positive urine pregnancy test as early as two weeks after the event (if you are pregnant of course). However, there may be some variation in ovulatory patterns, sperm survival, etc... So.... If your test is negative I would check again a few days later just to be sure. ...Read more

Is the result accurate whenever I checked my beta hCG 2 weeks after a protected sex? Bec. It happened again 7 days after my first sexual encounter.

Maybe too early: A urine pregnancy test is reliable if done correctly and read correctly, 3 weeks after having sex, or the week after missing a period. If negative at that time, and still worried, one can recheck 5-7 days later. ...Read more

Yes. : If the bhcg is 7.6 you are or were pregnant. Occasionally the test can be wrong but very infrequently. With such a low number and the last sex on 5/5 then more than likely you lost the pregnancy and all I would suggest is repeating the bhcg in 1 week to make sure it want back down to normal (<2). ...Read more

It's been 10 days since I had sex I just had a blood test that came back at .1 hCG is this too soon to be accurate?

Probably: If you ovulated 10 days ago and got pregnant it would still be early, so I wouldn't count on anything yet. A pregnancy test (home or office) is usually reliable yes/no 1-2 days before your period is expected, regardless of when you had sex. ...Read more

1/22/2014 my hCG levels were 22594 and my LMP was dec 9th. How many weeks pregnant was I at that time? also, my sex days were dec 16 and dec 22-24th

Unusual question: Using a pregnancy calculator one typically uses the date of the last period to figure out due date. I am certain this has been done by your obstetrician or family physician, during your prenatal care. If you have questions about your pregnancy the best person to ask is your OB. by dates you due date is September 15th and date of conception December 23rd. Make sure to follow up with OB as planned. ...Read more
