If u have a + result at night and the conception indicator reads "2 - 3 weeks" is this reading just as accurate as the positive reading?

If u have a + result at night and the conception indicator reads "2 - 3 weeks" is this reading just as accurate as the positive reading?

No: The positive reading is accurate. But the number of weeks is not. There is a very wide range of pregnancy hormone early in pregnancy. Those results are not accurate for figuring out when the conception happened. The most accurate way of telling when the pregnancy was conceived is an ultrasound done between 6 and 10 weeks of gestational age. ...Read more

Would a clear blue conception indicator go down as u miscarry? In a week should the weeks have decreased?

Would a clear blue conception indicator go down as u miscarry? In a week should the weeks have decreased?

Not necessarily: If hpt identifies pregnancy as positive or negative, it determines this based on the pregnancy hormone level (HCG) above a given threshold. This threshold is relatively low to allow detection of early pregnancies. Depending on the estimated gestational age at time of miscarriage, it may take a couple to a few weeks for the HCG levels to get back down to negative as detected by hpt. ...Read more

Clearblueeasy hCG levels for the conception indicator tests:1-2 weeks = 25miu to 200miu 2-3 weeks = 201miu to 2000miu 3+ weeks = >2000miu. Accuracy?

No: Accurate dating can't be done with these tests. The reason is that the beta-hcg levels have too wide of a normal variation at this early gestational age. An ultrasound done between 6 and 10 weeks gestational age is the most accurate way of dating pregnancy if the exact day of conception isn't possible to know. ...Read more

Hi I've done a clearblue digital with conception indicator prengnacy test it says im 2-3 weeks does that mean I got pregnant 2-3weeks before period was due?

Conception: The clear blue digital with conception indicator detects the level of HCG in your body, and gives you a range of age of the embryo based on the calculation. If it is giving you a range of 2-3 weeks, it means that 2-3 weeks ago, you conceived. An ultrasound is the best way to determine the age of the embryo, or calculated by last menstrual period. Please see your doctor, be well. ...Read more

What is the point of conception indicators on urine pregnancy tests when they are deemed inaccurate?

What is the point of conception indicators on urine pregnancy tests when they are deemed inaccurate?

Depends: For some women they do not work well and so using them is a waster of time. For some women they are very reliable but not perfect. In general they are overrated, if it is just to time sex then it is better just to have sex more often around the time you think you will ovulate. If they are used to time fertility treatments, often the doctor will have backup plan in case the kit in not working. ...Read more
