I took mesopril after having pregnancy test positive. After some dark clots, and complete dose i still donot have bleeding. What to do?

Not 100%: Unfortunately, this medication does not result in pregnancy termination 100% of the time. There are a couple of different options. It can be taken again, either the same way or by a different route, in other words, if you took it orally the first time you could use it vaginally next time. Or you could move directly to a surgical procedure. Either way, i would see a doctor for an ultrasound first. ...Read more

Pregnancy test positive..week 4 n 3days! but i cant visit doc until my hubby comes home..n his coming on 9th week of my pregnancy..is it ok?

Yes, its ok: Waiting until your 9th week to see your doc will most likely not hurt you or your baby. It would be best to start taking pre-natal vitamins that contain folic acid even before you see your doc. We often like to see you sooner to arrange an early ultrasound and review your history but it doesn't frequently change the pregnancy outcome. Best wishes! ...Read more

Can a pregnancy test positive through a blood test just 5 days after intercourse?

Not likely: 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. ...Read more

I had my period Nov 12 ended Pregnancy test positive Dec 16 how far along is the Pregnancy now?

It depends: If it really was a period you would be about 6 weeks along. However, you might be further along if the period was just first trimester spotting. A transvaginal ultrasound will give you a much more definite answer because it can actually measure the size of the gestational sac and the crown-rump length of the fetus. It is usually accurate plus or minus a week. ...Read more
