I had unprotected sex two days ago and think I may be pregnant. Would I be showing symptoms this early? I just had an abortion two weeks ago.

Hmmm...: One should always have a reliable birth control method if not trying to get pregnant (no exceptions on that). If trying to get pregnant, one should ask her Ob-Gyn doctor how long to wait after her abortion before starting trying for a baby. A pregnancy causes NO symptoms until at least 10-14 days after conception. ...Read more

I'm almost a week late, and pregnancy tests keep showing negative results? Is it too early? Or could i need a blood test?

If it has been at least that long since your last unprotected sex, and you still don't get your period or a positive test using your first morning's urine, then you may want to ask your doctor for a blood test. Having said that, there are many reasons for a late period besides pregnancy: changes in weight, stress, travel, illness, etc. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. My understanding is that preeclampsia is defined as the new onset of elevated blood pressure and protein in the urine after 20 weeks of gestation. It often develops during the second half of a pregnancy or up to 6 weeks after the birth. It may be detected through blood pressure elevation and evaluation of blood/urine in the early stages. If you feel that nurse is being less than professional and the doctor is not willing to address it; you can talk to the medical facility's patient contact representative who is there to assist with this type of situation. I am sorry, i don't have a recommendatio for the urine sample problem. Congratulations on your pregnancy. ...Read more
