I had sex 7 week ago. Did a pregnancy test and was positive. Then did USG which tell that I'm pregnant for 4 weeks so I'm feeling confused.

Hmmm...: If she has not had any kind of sex since 7 weeks ago, and is now newly pregnant, then she is at least about 9 weeks pregnant (7 + 2 = 9, standard way of counting pregnancy dates).

Trigger shot gave +: The first pregnancy test you took, if too soon after the embryo transfer, was probably positive from the HCG 'trigger shot' that you took before your egg retrieval (hcg is pregnancy hormone). If you had a blastocyst-stage embryo transfer, wait 9 days post transfer before taking a pregnancy test. Talk to your clinic. Best wishes. ...Read more
