Gf had to take urine pregnancy test at doctors 2 weeks ago still havnt heard back any idea what this could mean?

Call doctor: Not hearing from the doctor does not mean anything. Call the doctor's office to get the results. If your Gf has had a period since the visit, it does not matter, You could do a home pregnancy test, if she has missed her period by 4-5 days. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the 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, ...Read more

How long after I conceive will I be able to get a positive pregnancy test at a doctors office?

How long after I conceive will I be able to get a positive pregnancy test at a doctors office?

Pretty quick...: ....probably as soon as you notice a missed period, but if you want to do a stealth attack on that poor little thing growing in there, then, depending on the test, about 10 days. Why? You taking bets? BTW, a commercial, over-the-counter urine test is pretty good. And just think, instead of waiting at the doctor's office you can wait in line at Rite-Aid! ...Read more

Had my periods on 23/06/2014. My doc suggested siphene from 27/06/2014 for upto 6 days. when do I ovulate and what date can I take my pregnancy test ?

After missed period: 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

In six weeks: with Depo-Provera there is a an additional two weeks of protection after the 12 weeks. under ideal circumstances it would take another two weeks before a woman coming off of Depol ovulates, and then another two weeks before she would anticipate her next menstrual period. after that I would repeat the pregnancy test on the weekly basisor wait until there are clinical signs like morning sickness. ...Read more

Healthy: Start your prenatal vitamins today. Avoid anything that may harm your fetus. No sodas/cafenated beverages, tobacco, alcohol, or advil/motrin/aleve/aspirin. No hot tub. No raw foods. Keep your activities to what they were prior to getting pregnant. Seek immediate treatment if you are having any discharge, bleeding, or urinary issues. ...Read more

Not yet!: If you have just missed a period and have taken your own home pregnancy test, i'd repeat it first, using a different test. You can always see your doctor for a definitive blood test if there is any doubt or a equivocal result! if your second test is positive, then it's likely that you are pregnant. Avoid alcohol, tobacco, and drugs until you're sure. A prenatal vitamin is also a good idea. Cheers! ...Read more

Maybe; Yes do test: Even teens using a most effective contraceptive like an IUD or subdermal implant,would benefit from a blood betaHCG test ASAP to be safe and if positive, need a Gyn evaluation and pelvic sonogram. If your pregnancy test is negative and you health otherwise good, chances are your cycles will return spontaneously to normal in 2 to 3 months. If they do not or worsen, get a Gyn consult and life plan. ...Read more
