Can htp be wrong? How often is it to get a false negative? Can an htp taken 5 months after sex be accurate?

Pregnancy tests: 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

I have this 20 day rule after sex, if you have no preg. Symptoms or feel wierd you are ok. Is this a accurate theory?

I have this 20 day rule after sex, if you have no preg. Symptoms or feel wierd you are ok. Is this a accurate theory?

One day theory: I have a one day theory after sex that "tops" yours. Anytime one has a sexual encounter without contraception then STD's and pregnancy are natural consequences of that action. Many of these consequences have no symptoms whatsoever, but pack a long lasting "punch". At 18, it is time to be mature about your sexual activity to avoid "unwanted" consequences. ...Read more

Took a oraquick home oral swab exam 3 months after sex and it was negative. Took another one a month later and it was also negative. Is it accurate?

HIV oraquick: A positive oraquick HIV test doesn't mean that an individual is infected with hiv, additional testing should be done in a medical setting to confirm. A negative test result doesn't mean that a person is not infected with hiv, particularly when exposure may have been within the previous three months. If negative at 6 months it is unlikely you have hiv. If concerned see your doctor to reconfirm. Tx. ...Read more

Next period is far away. Can I test 20 days after sex with a first response & get an accurate result?

How to get pregnant: If your period is 'far away' why would you be worried that you are pregnant. If you had sex early in your cycle when you were not fertile then you did not get pregnant. It is thought that any testing before you have missed a period is a waste of money because it would be too soon to test. ...Read more

Took hpt yesterday 34 days after sex it was neg. Someone told me the hpt wasn't accurate due to that I took it in the afternoon is this true?

Not exactly: "not as sensitive" is more appropriate. You want to maximize the concentration, so the first morning urine is always what is recommended. The test measures levels of hormones, and it's designed to let you know if the level is above a certain, predetermined "high chance of pregnancy" mark. ...Read more

Had sex at start of placebo pills and got that period. Will a test be accurate now 25 days after sex? Next period is in 6 days.

If positive: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 3 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. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
