Would I get accurate blood test pregnancy report if I am taking microgyno and suspect I am pregnant? It's urgent please help
Microgynon?: Urine or blood pregnancy tests are very accurate, regardless of whether a woman is on birth control pills or not.

Blood test for pregnancy came positive is blood test 100% accurate and will i see a baby in the ultrasound?
Only if you're good!: That is to say, good at interpretation of scans. I assume from your question that this was an early measurement, and you just missed one or two periods. If so, it will take an expert radiologist to see the developing fetus. You will be able to see a lot more after 4 or 5 months, and it doesn't look much like your baby for about 7 months. Nothing is 100% in medicine. ...Read more
