How long do I have to wait to take a pregnancy test after sex with husband??

How long do I have to wait to take a pregnancy test after sex with husband??

3 weeks: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Hi,my blood group and husband is similar and both are o+. is there any problem for pregnancy?

No: You're fine. Blood groups aren't a problem for marriage and if you've read otherwise on a website, ignore it -- it's internet trash. A Rh negative woman carrying an Rh positive child from an Rh positive dad is likely to receive an injection to prevent sensitization. Nowadays this is a total non-problem. Congratulations on having one another; I hope your love lasts a lifetime and your dreams work. ...Read more

Can I be around paint fumes during my pregnancy? We're repainting our house so can I help my husband?

Can I be around paint fumes during my pregnancy? We're repainting our house so can I help my husband?

Latex paint, Yes: Latex paint is water based and soap washable and generally does not produce "fumes" that can harm a pregnancy after the first trimester. I would not expose the pregnancy to oil based paint fumes during any trimester of the pregnancy. I would wear a mask if helping paint with your husband as a further precaution and again not during the first trimester of pregnancy. ...Read more

My husband and I are planning our first pregnancy. I am a- and he is o+. Could this cause any problems?

Rh incompatability: If you deliver an Rh positive baby, there is an increased risk of jaundice in the neonatal period. Most likely, your newborns blood type will be checked shortly after birth and bilirubin levels will be monitored. This method of early detection and treatment (if needed) is a very effective way to prevent complications from hyperbilirubinemia. ...Read more
