How long after abortion does pregnancy test read positive?

How long after abortion does pregnancy test read positive?

Depends: On how high the HCG was when you had the abortion: the higher (farther along) the longer it will take to disappear. I've seen it take up to 8 weeks.

I took mesopril after having pregnancy test positive. After some dark clots, and complete dose I still donot have bleeding. What to do?

I took mesopril after having pregnancy test positive. After some dark clots, and complete dose I still donot have bleeding. What to do?

Not 100%: Unfortunately, this medication does not result in pregnancy termination 100% of the time. There are a couple of different options. It can be taken again, either the same way or by a different route, in other words, if you took it orally the first time you could use it vaginally next time. Or you could move directly to a surgical procedure. Either way, I would see a doctor for an ultrasound first.

I had my period Nov 12 ended Pregnancy test positive Dec 16 how far along is the Pregnancy now?

I had my period Nov 12 ended Pregnancy test positive Dec 16 how far along is the Pregnancy now?

It depends: If it really was a period you would be about 6 weeks along. However, you might be further along if the period was just first trimester spotting. A transvaginal ultrasound will give you a much more definite answer because it can actually measure the size of the gestational sac and the crown-rump length of the fetus. It is usually accurate plus or minus a week.

Pregnancy test positive. Week 4 n 3days! But I cant visit doc until my hubby comes home. N his coming on 9th week of my pregnancy. Is it ok?

Pregnancy test positive. Week 4 n 3days! But I cant visit doc until my hubby comes home. N his coming on 9th week of my pregnancy. Is it ok?

Yes, its ok: Waiting until your 9th week to see your doc will most likely not hurt you or your baby. It would be best to start taking pre-natal vitamins that contain folic acid even before you see your doc. We often like to see you sooner to arrange an early ultrasound and review your history but it doesn't frequently change the pregnancy outcome. Best wishes!

Can a pregnancy test positive through a blood test just 5 days after intercourse?

Can a pregnancy test positive through a blood test just 5 days after intercourse?

Not likely: 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.

Pregnancy test positive line showed up only when I had A flashlight up to it. Shows a line that I didn't see with the naked eye. Could I b pregnant?

Need more info: Did you have unprotected sex? Did you miss a period? If yes to both, you should re do the test at 5-7 days after the missed period. You may get a blood test that is positive sooner and will be positive if you missed your period. For home test Use first morning urine and follow the 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. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

You: You need to be medically evaluated. Please be seen by a gynecologist and be sure that your pregnancy is ok. If you develop pain, fever, vomiting, spotting, or light-headedness/fainting then you will need to be seen in the er.

How long will a pregnancy test show positive after an abortion?

Varies: Bhcg resolution varies from person to person. It may take a few days or a few weeks. Unless you had sex without condoms or birth control after your abortion then the pregnancy test is still detecting left over hormone from the previous pregnancy. Recheck it once and week until it resolves. Start birth control to prevent another unplanned pregnancy.
