Yes: Most home pregnancy tests are highly accurate once you have missed your first period. Follow the instructions closely and use your first morning urine.

Refrain from alcohol and cigarettes until you know for sure. ...Read more

If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

I took a cheap pregnancy test first thing in the morning and got a very faint second line (i took povacare medication for a yeast infection). I tested 2 first response pregnancy tests about 30 minutes after and both were negative. Am I pregnant?

Hyperthyroidism. ..: & hypothhyroidism, for that matter, can certainly affect ovulation. The thyroid really needs to function normally for healthy pregnancy & baby to result.

Work with your doctor to optimize thyroid function. ...Read more
