Would urine culture & sensitivity test at first antenatal appointment show chlamydia ect?Midwife didn't give me a pap test but took blood and urine.

Would urine culture & sensitivity test at first antenatal appointment show chlamydia ect?Midwife didn't give me a pap test but took blood and urine.

Maybe: Chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis or other STDs can only be detected if you look for them. Specialized lab material & personnel time is required. The routine prenatal urinalysis or culture looks for regular germs. Urine could be used to detect chlamydia & gonorrhea if they submit it for the extra testing. The blood could be screened for evidence of several germs (syphilis, herpes) ...Read more

Missed period for 2 month and urine pregnancy test came up negative?

Dr. Beth Zha Dr. Zha
1 doctor agreed:

Few reasons: There are a few questions to consider. Have you lost weight recently, changed activity level or been under a lot of stress? What was the age your mother/grandmother went through menopause? If you do not have another menstrual cycle in coming month and pregnancy test is negative, I'd go to your internist for further assessment to cause. ...Read more

Home pregnancy test was positive but blood hCG came back negative. Ob perform a blood test again. Hcg 750 progesterone 21. Why first hCG was negative?

Home pregnancy test was positive but blood hCG came back negative. Ob perform a blood test again. Hcg 750 progesterone 21. Why first hCG was negative?

Lab error: Presuming the first blood pregnancy test was close to the second, one of them had to be a lab error, probably the first one that was negative. If there is any question about the health of the pregnancy, your doctor can follow the bhcg level to see if it is rising appropriately and obtain an ultrasound when the level is high enough.For more info www.Askyourgynecologist.Org. ...Read more

Is a first response early result pregnancy test more accurate then a dr.S office urine test? My home pregnancy test was pos but doc office was neg!

Is a first response early result pregnancy test more accurate then a dr.S office urine test? My home pregnancy test was pos but doc office was neg!

Not likely.: No test is 100% accurate, unfortunately. I'd suggest waiting a week, repeating the home test, and if it's still positive, going back to your doctor's. If the doctor's office urine test is still negative, your doctor can order a blood test for pregnancy, which is more accurate. ...Read more

Implantation bleed next day positive pregnancy bu first response test then next day negative test by sainsburys still no period?

Implantation bleed next day positive pregnancy bu first response test  then next day negative test by sainsburys still no period?

Misinformed?: First a fetus implanting on the wall of the uterus is the size of a speck of dust or smaller. It has no physical or chemical connection to the mother or the mother's blood supply. It would be absolutely physically impossible for a positive pregnancy test in the time frame you describe with implantation. Impossible. A positive test means a pregnancy many days earlier than that or it is a false tes. ...Read more

Why do some women never test positive on a home pregnancy test?? Not blood test. Followed directions. 10 weeks since sex

Why do some women never test positive on a home pregnancy test?? Not blood test. Followed directions. 10 weeks since sex

Persistent neg uhCG: The reason is unclear. Clearly some forms of the hCG molecule do not respond to the antibodies in the preg test and it gives a negative result, which is clearly a false negative. That being said doesn't mean that your pregnancy is at all abnormal with a + blood test. I wouldn't be concerned over this. ...Read more

Faint positive pregnancy test at 8 days past ovulation toke another test again with first morning urine, negative! could this be a chemical pregnancy?

Testing too early: You tested way too early. The tests, both of them, are invalid. You must wait at least fourteen days or till your next period is delayed or missed. You are washing money on tests that will not give you any accurate answers yet. ...Read more

Faint positive hpt w/ first morn urine, neg dr. Urine test later that day, blood test came back post. Why was drs urine test neg? Early testing?

Pregnancy tests: Blood tests are more sensitive than urine tests, especially in early pregnancy. First morning urine is usually more concentrated than urine produced later in the day. Eating and drinking can dilute the urine enough to cause a false-negative result. That is why the blood test is done for confirmation. ...Read more

Does an STD test or pap smear test for HIV/aids?

Does an STD test or pap smear test for HIV/aids?

Not necessarily: A specific HIV test has to be ordered by the doctor. Usually the doctor will inform the patient (or ask permission) before doing an HIV test, so if there was no discussion about it, most likely the test wasn't done. OTOH, everyone tested for STDs should also be tested for HIV, but different doctors and clinics have different policies, however. Call the office and ask directly. ...Read more
