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

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

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
