Dark line across toenail ?

Nail discoloration : A dark line across your nail may have a variety of causes. Trauma to the nail plate from athletic activity may cause some subungual (under the nail) bleeding.

I have a dark line across my nose for 2 years?

I have a dark line across my nose for 2 years?

May need evaluation: It's hard to know just from the description of "a dark line" whether this is anything concerning. If it is a horizontal line just below the bridge of your nose, it may be caused by chronic upward wiping of your nose due to allergies. However, I suggest having someone take a look to make sure it doesn't need a biopsy to rule out skin cancer. ...Read more

Patience...: Patience is priceless. In order not have to repeat a "faint line" result, or a false negative test, one should test the week after missing a regular expected period, or test 3 weeks after sex (after conception). Positive results can happen sooner, but so can "faint lines", as well as false negatives (tested too early). ...Read more

Got dark line at the base of pinky toe. Will this go away? The toe appears to be growing but the mark stays in place

Incomplete question: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 3 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 the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow 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, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are younger than 27 years. ...Read more
