I'm 7days post ovulation I had a blood test done it was negative does this mean im not pregnant?

Too early to test: 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

If u have already conceived does the day 21 ovulation blood test still came positive?

If my Cycle is 28 days aprox. What day should I have a blood test to see if I'm ovulating?

Calendar: Keep a calendar of your cycle for a few months, if you are regular, you always ovulate 14 days BEFORE your period starts. Once you have a good idea when to predict your start date count backward 14 days and that should be the date you will ovulate.

Had a 21 day blood test & the result was normal. Does this mean im ovulating correctly? Is this a good sign as im TTC

Confirm your results: You should confirm with your doctor what test you had, what the results were and what it means. I suspect you had a Progesterone test done which is often done on day 21 to confirm ovulation. If your Progesterone was above 10 then this is consistent with ovulation. ...Read more

I ovulated on the 30th December and I got a positive blood test on the 7th Jan, 30.9HCG. I am due on today, so far I have a very very light brown dis?

Unclear question: Mild bleeding/spotting is not uncommon in early pregnancy. Should, you, God forbid, get frank bleeding like a period or abdominal pain, it would be prudent to see your doctor.
Wish you good health and a health baby! ...Read more

Can a blood test tell that you are ovulating or not? Thanks

Ovulation prediction: Use an ovulation prediction kit to determine whether you're ovulating or not. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/how-to-get-pregnant/pr00103. Opks test for a surge of hormones in urine (in other words, blood test isn't necessary). ...Read more

If I was pregnant would it show in a ovulation blood test?

If I was pregnant would it show in a ovulation blood test?

Yes: Ovulation kits measure a hormone called lh, which is structurally almost identical to HCG (the 'pregnancy' hormone), and the 2 will cross-react on the ovulation prediction test. So it could like like you are ovulating when you are in fact, pregnant. ...Read more

If blood test says ovulated day 21 of 28 day cycle, when estimating the fa from an u/s wld I only subtract 7 dys from the ga instead of 14? Pls help!

If blood test says ovulated day 21 of 28 day cycle, when estimating the fa from an u/s wld I only subtract 7 dys from the ga instead of 14? Pls help!

No. Still use 14.: If the estimated gestational age is only from an ultrasound dating scan, that result already added in the 2 weeks from LMP to conception. That means the estimated conception date is always 2 weeks after the estimated last menstrual period date given by the ultrasound scan. The reason is: if the gestational age estimate is from the ultrasound scan alone, the calculations ignore the blood test. ...Read more

After missed period: You may have tested too soon. You may wish to do a home pregnancy test 4-5 days after a missed period, using first morning urine and following the instructions carefully. Consult this site for signs of pregnancy.

I have 34 days cycle and get my progesterone checked around day 21, which shows ovulation. Should I go for a blood test on day 28? What's the differenc

I have 34 days cycle and get my progesterone checked around day 21, which shows ovulation. Should I go for a blood test on day 28? What's the differenc

It depends: If you have a regular 34 day cycle, you should ovulate on day 20 and if the progesterone on day 21 is consistent with ovulation, the progesterone on day 28 should still be consistent with ovulation. Testing again would only be helpful if for some reason a luteal phase defect was suspected. Talk with the doctor ordering the test about whether it needs to be repeated. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Is it normal to ovulate on day21 of a 28 day cycle? Blood test result said ovulation likely day 21. My cycles are every 28 days

Not the way it works: Nope. Ovulation occurs just shy of half way through your cycle. Day 21 would not give the body time to prepare and slough off the uterine lining if not pregnant and would not give enough time to protect the lining of the uterus if conception occurred. ...Read more

Unprotected sex on the 6th (neg) blood test 132&20 of Sept. Blood Test Oct 1Could I get a positive for either one? Ovulated on the 11th. Fertile 6-10

Pregnancy: I am confused by your info, so I will respond in general terms. A pregnancy test can be positive within 5-7 days of conception. If you had a period after unprotected sex, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. You are most fertile midcycle, within 5 days of ovulation. Many women in their 40's can conceive, but it is less likely and the risk of a child with Down's Syndrome after 40 is 1 in 50. ...Read more

I'm 14 days late and 3 days pass ovulation took hpt last Tuesday (negative) blood test Friday an today (negative) is it too early or what else could?

Hormonal imbalance: If a properly done pregnancy test was negative at more than 10 days after the due date of the period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. Consult this site for more information on this topic.

I had unprotected sex april 16th that day I took an ovulation test and it said I was at my peak, when can I get a blood test done and chances of preg?

Too Early to Tell: You very well may be pregnant but there is no testing this early. The easiest would be when you next miss your period. The obstetrician could do a blood test a bit sooner, but nothing would change between now and then. Patience is wise. ...Read more

How many days past ovulation will a blood test show pregnancy?

How many days past ovulation will a blood test show pregnancy?

About two weeks: The blood test should be most accurate about 14 days after ovulation. It's possible to get a positive blood or urine pregnancy test earlier than this. But it's not as reliable as the 'two week wait'. A HCG 'trigger shot' can give you a false positive pregnancy test if you test too early, as well. ...Read more
