HIDA scan done 7 days after sex- home preg test was negative day of and 2 days after scan. But what if to early for test to be positive? Worried

Can retest in 12days: 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

This may be a dumb question, but when someone says they got a positve preg test 10 days post ovulation, does that mean 10 days after sex?

Wait: First of all I think you should repeat the pregnancy test on your own. If negative and you still feel bloated a pelvic ultrasound.could be prescribed. Ectopics are very painful and are felt on the left or right side of your abdomen depending which tube is involved. 41 is a little early for menopause but ask when it started in your mother. ...Read more

Took a pregnency test a week after sex came out positive, is it valid?

Took a pregnency test a week after sex came out positive, is it valid?

Pregnancy test: The at home pregnancy tests are usually very reliable but can give you "false positives", i.e. They say they're positive, but in reality it's not for a true pregnancy. You can repeat the at home pregnancy test or get a blood HCG test from your doctor. An ultrasound will also confirm pregnancy that's occurring within the uterus and not somewhere else (fallopian tubes). Hope this helps! ...Read more

I took Plan B about 36 hrs after sex last Mon, light bleeding Wed/Thurs and now have a positive preg test this Mon. Could this be a chemical preg?

I took Plan B about 36 hrs after sex last Mon, light bleeding Wed/Thurs and now have a positive preg test this Mon. Could this be a chemical preg?

Pre-existing: It sounds as if you might have already been pregnant before Monday. This would be early for a pregnancy test to already be pregnant if you conceived on Monday. There is no HCG in Plan B and it would not cause you to produce any. You need to see your doctor to discuss your options. ...Read more

Took a hpt acouple hours after sex it was faint positive next day no test next 2 positive htp plus confirmed at clinic is this possible or im further?

Took a hpt acouple hours after sex it was faint positive next day no test next 2 positive htp plus confirmed at clinic is this possible or im further?

Sure: Keep in mind a upt reads a hormone released from an implanted embryo. This will not happen until a fertilized embryo implants into the uterine wall, around a week or so after intercourse. You may have misinterpreted the test, but if it was truly negative then positive then you are still very early; good luck. If positive after intercourse, immediatly, you are further along. ...Read more

Can a very faint kinda hard 2 see 2nd line on a pg test still mean ur pg, but you need to take another one, if so when? Was taken 29 days after sex

Maybe: A pregnancy test needs to be read at the time it says on the package. This is usually 3 minutes. If left to sit longer, then read, it may be a false positive. A test taken 29 days after sex would be accurate. ...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
