On baby planning from end of last cycle. Period due over 1 week. Home hcg test negetive. Pls advice.

Repeat test: Sometimes the 1st test will return negative then positive in another week. If repeat test negative, then go back to enjoying unprotected sex (it may take up to a year to get pregnant after stopping birth control - go see family doc if more than 1yr ). In meantime, start taking prenatal vitamins (contains extra folate (folic acid) to lower risk for neural tube defects) when you decide to try to conceive. ...Read more

I took a home hcg test and it came out negative but I'm still have those pregnancy symptoms at the moment, can the test be wrong.. And can I be pregnant?

I took a home hcg test and it came out negative but I'm still have those pregnancy symptoms at the moment, can the test be wrong.. And can I be pregnant?

Depends: Did you have unprotected sex? Did you miss a period? If yes to both, you should re do the test and if it is negative repeat it in 5-7 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. 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. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

I had a miscarriage in July I had my first period on 9/2 and skipped this month. Home hCG test is negative what could this mean?

I had a miscarriage in July I had my first period on 9/2 and skipped this month. Home hCG test is negative what could this mean?

Probably all is well: Sorry to hear about your miscarriage. It's takes a while for the reproductive system to reset itself after a miscarriage. Consider another pregnancy test if no menses. Usually midcycle affer a relatively normal menses after a miscarriage would be the ideal time to start trying again. It is unlikely that you have an increased risk for another miscarriage - they are very common though. Good luck. ...Read more

Maybe: One of the many side effects for an IUD include irregular periods. It is also possible to become pregnant with this apparatus. I think that its time for a sit down with your doctor so he can explain all of the possibilities. Good luck ...Read more

Can I be pregnant my mouth is sour from 3 days but hCG home test it is coming negative my due date was 18th and I use to get my period  6 days before?

Wait a little...: If you suspect you are pregnant probably would be good to wait few days and get pregnancy test repeated. If negative again and still not getting your period it is time then to see your PCP OR GYN provider. ...Read more

Hello i had an hCG inj 5000 17 may 2014 .so when to perform home pregnancy test ?

Hello i had an hCG inj 5000 17 may 2014 .so when to perform home pregnancy test ?

Unclear questions: HCG injection will not result in pregnancy. In fact HCG injections are not good for any thing other than lightening your wallet. The injection you had in 2014, is no longer an issue. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. 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. ...Read more

I took an hCG booster of 250 units (i believe that is the correct measurement. Small amt) when can I take a home pregnancy test?

I took an hCG booster of 250 units (i believe that is the correct measurement. Small amt) when can I take a home pregnancy test?

About 2 -12 days.: From what i know about this, you're supposed to ovulate about 36 hours after you take gthis with a concomitant rise in temperature. If you engage in intercourse, etc. You should first take your pregnancy test about 2-10 days after this, especially if you don't have your period. If the result is not clear you can also take the test after that. ...Read more

I took hCG drops about a month ago, stopped about 15 days later. yesterday I took a home pregnancy test and it came back positive. could it be false?

I took hCG drops about a month ago, stopped about 15 days later. yesterday I took a home pregnancy test and it came back positive. could it be false?

Probably not: The drops were so long ago, and there is not great absorption anyway (ie. waste of money) that it would not cause the pregnancy test to be positive. I suggest you follow up with your GYN. ...Read more

BY the time your hCG level is high enough to detect in a home pregnancy test how many weeks pregnant will you be?

BY the time your hCG level is high enough to detect in a home pregnancy test how many weeks pregnant will you be?

Ralph881: Believe it or not, home pregnancy tests are positive at very low HCG levels in the first 2-3 weeks of pregnancy and sometimes even earlier. The key is performing the test on the first urine after a night's sleep so it is concentrated and not dilute and performing the test exactly as instructed ...Read more

Last sex 5.05. On 8.06 i took blood test hCG beta hormon level 7, 6. After seven days i made home pregnancy test it was negative. I'm i pregnant?

Last sex 5.05. On 8.06 i took blood test hCG beta hormon level 7, 6. After seven days i made home pregnancy test it was negative. I'm i pregnant?

Don't think so.: The beta HCG level of 7 is very low- if a urine pregnancy test was negative 7 days later then it sounds like your hormone levels declined after the 8.06 test -instead of increasing, as they should have with a normally progressing pregnancy. There is a small chance of getting a false negative home pregnancy test and you could check it again or get another beta check to be sure. But most likely not. ...Read more
