Whens the earliest you can tell if you are pregnant? and what are the options to not carry on with the pregnancy e.g abortion

Whens the earliest you can tell if you are pregnant? and what are the options to not carry on with the pregnancy e.g abortion

2 weeks, 2 options: A home pregnancy test will reliably turn positive about 2 weeks after conception, around the same time you'll be missing your period. There can still be false negatives at this time though, so a repeat 2 weeks later can be helpful. A pregnancy can be aborted medically (using the mifepristone + misoprostol pill) or later on can be aborted with a surgical procedure through the vagina/cervix. ...Read more

Why is pre term labour likely to happen again with future pregnancies? Does the body not "know" how to carry to term? How do the shots prevent ptl?

Why is pre term labour likely to happen again with future pregnancies? Does the body not "know" how to carry to term? How do the shots prevent ptl?

We don't really know: Statistically, if you have had preterm labor your chances of having it again are increased, but this does not explain anything. Similarly, some treatments appear to reduce the chances, statistically, but how they work is unclear. Effective and reliable treatment has yet to be developed, nor do we have an effective way to predict it. ...Read more
