I had my IUD removed in the doctors office in May and I haven't stop bleeding is something wrong with me or normal? And I want to get pregnant

Not You: There's nothing wrong with you but maybe something wrong with your uterus or cervix so have that checked immediately by the doctor who removed the IUD. That's just too long to bleed after such a simple procedure! ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

When will a blood test show positive? We've been trying for 4 months to get pregnant. I took a test on Friday at the doctors office. It was negative.

Missed Period: It will show positive when you are pregnant and enough days have passed after the baby is conceived for it to be big enough to have a placenta, chemicals and blood that your body can detect. Usually you test AFTER a period is missed, not before. ...Read more

How far along do I need to be to test positive on a urine pregnancy test at the doctors office?

Pregnancy: If you have regular menstrual cycles, a pregnancy test will be positive soon after your missed period (1-3 days). Some tests may detect things earlier. You can check a urine pregnancy test at home if you are concerned at all and have a blood pregnancy test at your doctor's office to confirm the pregnancy. ...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

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

Possible follow-up: Qualitative pregnancy tests of either urine or serum may screen for different "cutoff values" for hcg; therefore, early in pregnancy some qualitative tests may be positive and others may be negative depending on the manufacturers cutoff for a "positive" level. With time all qualitative tests become positive as the levels of HCG rise. Repeat the urine test in a few days to a week to know for sure. ...Read more

If you have 2 periods in one month can you be pregnant if you tested negative at the doctors office 1 week after having sex?

If you have 2 periods in one month can you be pregnant if you tested negative at the doctors office 1 week after having sex?

Just take a test: Dont guess. Take a test. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Took a pregnancy test the week my period was due at the doctors office and it tested negative, but my period has yet to arrive?

Repeat test: Typically, urine pregnancy tests are positive around the time a woman expects to come on her menstrual period. However, if conception was later than anticipated, the menstrual period may be delayed and the pregnancy test may turn positive a little later. Repeating the test a week from the previous one may be a good idea. ...Read more

Is AZO-Cranberrysafe to take at 13 weeks pregnant? I am not able to consult with my physician because it is after office hours

Is AZO-Cranberrysafe to take at 13 weeks pregnant? I am not able to consult with my physician because it is after office hours

Cranberry: Actually its better to just drink some 100% pure cranberry juice for UTI symptoms. In addition if you have seen an OB for this pregnancy, he/she likely has an after hours answering service. Call the office and see if you get connected to the after hours service or if a machine, listen for the answering service phone #. Almost all OB phsycians have a way of getting ahold of them after hours. ...Read more
