What can affect home pregnancy test results?

What can affect home pregnancy test results?

Testing too soon: Main thing is timing-it takes time (up to 2 wks) for your urinary levels of HCG to get elevated enough to be detected. Over-the-counter tests aren't always as sensitive as tests at your doctor's office, but even those usually take at least a few days after you're late to turn positive. Recheck 1-2 weeks later if you're late for your period & suspect you might be pregnant. ...Read more

Can my diabetes affect a home pregnancy test??

Can my diabetes affect a home pregnancy test??

Not the test itself: Hi. No, diabetes in any state of control (or lack thereof) will not skew the pregnancy test itself. However, you should be in excellent control for at least a few months prior to conception and throughout the pregnancy if you decide to keep it. Hopefully you're in excellent control ALL the time. Type 2 at age 23 suggests some less than ideal lifestyle factors. Eat healthily and exercise regularly. ...Read more

Can OPK detect pregnancy if the hpt is negative?

Can OPK detect pregnancy if the hpt is negative?

You are not pregnant: I am not sure what you mean by using these acronyms. Opk to a physician is 'ovulation predictor kit". There is nothing in the ovulation prediction process that tests for pregnancy. The home pregnancy test, if done after one misses a period or has a delayed period is a very accurate and valid way to test for pregnancy. If you doubt the hpt and have not had your period then there is blood tests. ...Read more

How soon after unprotected sex can I take a pregnancy test? Not sure where I am in cycle. Cycle isn't normal 28 days; inconsistent.

How soon after unprotected sex can I take a pregnancy test? Not sure where I am in cycle. Cycle isn't normal 28 days; inconsistent.

One can wait 3 weeks: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Why can't i take a pregnancy test before my projected period date? I'm 7 days out, why would taking one now not give a correct result?

Why can't i take a pregnancy test before my projected period date? I'm 7 days out, why would taking one now not give a correct result?

Back to health Class: Wow. Here are the facts. The sperm impregnate the egg outside of any organ inside the pelvis. Then the egg has to travel down the fallopian tubes and then enter the uterus. It then has to land on a wall of the uterus and then implant. Then it begins to grow. While it is growing it leaks HCG hormone that then when high enough permeates into the mother's blood stream. This process takes 2 weeks. ...Read more

Even technically pregnant until 3 weeks and you don't start producing hCG until then so could that be why my pregnancy test are negative?

Even technically pregnant until 3 weeks and you don't start producing hCG until then so could that be why my pregnancy test are negative?

I don't understand: precisely what you are asking, but hCG is produced and detectable by 10-12 days after fertilization, which also means roughly 2-3 days before you'd expect your period in a 28-day cycle. If you test negative at this time, you are not pregnant. Hope this helps. ...Read more
