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

The: The bottom line here is that if she has genital herpes, regardless of who she got it from or when she contracted it, you are at risk if you had unprotected sex with her. The emergency room likely did not test you for herpes because you had no active lesions, and in reality this is not an emergency, unless you were having a very painful outbreak. If you would like to know if you have contracted the herpes virus, you can visit your primary care provider and ask for a blood test, or you can wait and go for treatment if you get an outbreak.
I also must state that there are individuals that carry the herpes virus but never get an outbreak.
The choice is yours to make.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Hi I've taken 3 home pregnacy test all positive with faint lines tho. My period was goin on 8 days late so decided to test. Had sex now bleeding. Help?

Unclear: It's possible that you are early pregnancy, it's also possible that you are miscarrying. The only way to tell would be to do sequential blood HCG tests. Your doctor could order these for you. Your other option is to just wait and see. See if bleeding continues, see if pregnancy test still positive in a few days. Unless you are at risk for ectopic, you don't have to go to the doctor. Goodluck. ...Read more

How soon after having intercourse can I take a pregnancy test? I really don't want to wait for when my period would be due, it is still 8 days away. I had unprotected sex 15 days ago, if I were pregnant would it show a positive result on a pregnancy test

How soon after having intercourse can I take a pregnancy test? I really don't want to wait for when my period would be due, it is still 8 days away. I had unprotected sex 15 days ago, if I were pregnant would it show a positive result on a pregnancy test

Pregnancy tests.: Urine pregnancy tests have become increasingly sensitive. 15 days after intercourse, it is likely the test would be positive if you were pregnant. It would be worth repeating if you had anything but a normal menstrual period. Menstrual periods are not absolute methods to determine pregnancy. Women can have periods the first month they are pregnant though generally shorter, lighter. ...Read more

Had sex on 6|25 missed period on 6|27, 6 days late pregnancy test negative then positive then negative again period came on 7|8 but now a month late?

Had sex on 6|25 missed period on 6|27, 6 days late pregnancy test negative then positive then negative again period came on 7|8 but now a month late?

Confusing: Your timeline is confusing: if you had a period on July 8th, and today's date is August 10th, your period is not one month late? Also, different pregnancy tests can have different cut-off points which changes how sensitive the tests are. You should sit down with a doctor to help sort out if any further care is needed since there was a positive pregnancy test recently. ...Read more

Would the morning after be worth getting if engaged in unprotected sex approx 9 or 10 days after getting a positive on ovulation predictor test?

Would the morning after be worth getting if engaged in unprotected sex approx 9 or 10 days after getting a positive on ovulation predictor test?

Kinda, sorta: Best way to get pregnant is to have unprotected sex. Sure you can try to time around ovulation but that's not as effective as some form of contraception. So if you don't want to conceive, consider some form of birth control but if you're caught up in heat of moment, then emergency contraception (morning after pill) is available. Only you can weigh cost of pill vs unwanted pregnancy. ...Read more

How likely is it realistically of becoming pregnant if I had unprotected sex 6-7 days before ovulation test showed up positive?

How likely is it realistically of becoming pregnant if I had unprotected sex 6-7 days before ovulation test showed up positive?

Not likely.: If that was your only unprotected encounter, it is not likely to result in pregnancy because the sperm can only live up to 5 days in your genital tract. Take Folic Acid 1 mg daily and check a urine pregnancy test 1-10 days after a late/missed period to be safe - and see your gynecologist for more answers. Best of luck! ...Read more

Is it possible to get positive hpt 9 days after sex. I jad sex on 05/30 and got a positive test 06/30. Or was I already pregnant.

Is it possible to get positive hpt 9 days after sex. I jad sex on 05/30 and got a positive test 06/30. Or was I already pregnant.

Confusion: If you had sex on 5/30 and you didn't test until 6/30 then that's actually 4 weeks inbetween the event and the testing which would be plenty of time for you to become pregnant from the encounter on 5/30. Await your first ultrasound to help with dating and EDC. ...Read more

A positive pregnancy test 5 days after sex does that mean its wrong?

A positive pregnancy test 5 days after sex does that mean its wrong?

Not necessarily: It usually takes more like 10-14 days to develop a positive. However, maybe she is pregnant from last months cycle or if she had unprotected sex more than once that could also be a possibility. Always consider confirming with a blood pregnancy test as it is less likely to give you a false negative. ...Read more
