List of early miscarriage symptoms and what causes a woman to miscarry during first trimester?

Most common: The first trimester is the most common time for a miscarriage, which is why 1st OB appointments are often after 10-13 weeks.

Ectopic pregnancy: an ectopic pregnancy may become critical at any point but the danger of rupture is greatest from 8-12 weeks. A pregnancy test alone is inadequate to diagnose an ectopic pregnancy.

What are the earliest symptoms of pregnancy? And when is the earliest time to use a pregnancy test?

What are the earliest symptoms of pregnancy? And when is the earliest time to use a pregnancy test?

Back to School?: True early pregnancy is symptom free. Remember health class where you learned that a fetus is not connected physically or chemically to its mother for the first fourteen or so days after conception? Thus any symptoms before the baby is big enough to be sharing a blood supply in the uterus with the mother are not pregnancy. Testing is best done after this fourteen day window and a missed period. ...Read more

Are ALL pregnancies in the US required STI tests including chlamydia? & how early do they test you? Or is it throughout pregnancy?

Difficult question: Many who achieve pregnancy have no prenatal care or access care late in pregnancy. A good full pregnancy workup would include a discussion of exposures and screening for a variety of STD's, but the extent of the evaluation may vary with the facility. New exposures would need new screening. A frank discussion with the OB can avert damage to the baby from an untreated problem. ...Read more

What is the earliest one should take a pregnancy test, and what are the earliest signs of pregnancy?

What is the earliest one should take a pregnancy test, and  what are the earliest signs of pregnancy?

2 to 3 weeks: Testing too late adds to the anxiety of waiting. Testing too early means you will not be totally sure that you are not pregnant, even if the result is negative. Generally, my advice is to test 2 weeks after intercourse. If result is positive, then you know early. If result is negative and you still have no menstruation, test again 3 weeks after intercourse to be sure. ...Read more
