Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Does metforal pills 850g effect pregnancy test?

Does metforal pills 850g effect pregnancy test?

No, don't think so: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) 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.

I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative, how come it came out negative if they say the more pills u miss u can get pregnant, but I didn't?

What are your goals?: It sounds as though you were wanting to be pregnant. If so then there is no reason to be taking birth control. Missing pills makes pregnancy more likely than taking them correctly but still less likely than someone who is not on them at all. If you do not want to be pregnant consider changing birth control methods to something you do not have to do every day like an IUD

I have come off my pill and I haven't had a period yet, but a pregnancy test said negative, what could cause this?

I have come off my pill and I haven't had a period yet, but a pregnancy test said negative, what could cause this?

Not ovulating: It is not unusual for a woman to miss several periods after coming off the pill. You could get pregnant however so I would use another means of contraception if you don't want to get pregnant

So there is no way that a plan b pill will effect the outcome of a pregnancy test?

Correct: The test is for HCG, a hormone that is released when a fertilized egg is implanted in the uterus (usually) or ectopically (rare).

What to do if I am planning on getting a pregnancy test soon but if I get the Plan B pill will it still terminate a pregnancy if there is one?

Plan B will: Not terminate a pregnancy. If you think you may already be pregnant- take a pregnancy test. Plan b is not designed to be used by females who are already pregnant.

I am using BCP from last 2 weeks, from 2days feeling I am pregnant. If I continue pills till +ve pregnancy test will pills cause any defect to baby?

I am using BCP from last 2 weeks, from 2days feeling I am pregnant. If I continue pills till +ve pregnancy test will pills cause any defect to baby?

No: Even on the off chance you are pregnant, continuing the pill a little bit longer is not a problem. On the other hand, stopping the pill because you think you might be pregnant could well make that happen even though you are not pregnant now. Don't stop until you have a clearly positive test.

I missed my pill 4 times, I had sex May 20th. I spotted but still haven't started, when should I take a pregnancy test?

I missed my pill 4 times, I had sex May 20th. I spotted but still haven't started, when should I take a pregnancy test?

In about a week: 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.

If I don't have a week break on the pill will this affect the results of a pregnancy test if I did one just to make sure?

If I don't have a week break on the pill will this affect the results of a pregnancy test if I did one just to make sure?

No: Not taking the week break won't affect the results of a pregnancy test. And your pills will continue to protect you as long as you start a new pack of active pills. You may have some breakthrough bleeding doing this but you won't get pregnant. Best wishes!

Don't worry: Almost all medicines leave no trace in the body, once the medicine has left the body over a few days (or weeks, if a long acting medicine). Haven't heard of anybody testing a groom or bride for medications in the blood.

Virginity: There is no way to answer your question fully since you did not tell us what pill you mean and why you think that anyone can tell what pill you took in the past when you are married. But, in general no one will be able to know your sexual history just by examining your private parts.
