Probably pregnant: Advanced pregnancy tests can detect hCG, the hormone found in pregnant womens urine, several days before the period is due. Also, women with even slight variations in cycle lengths may not always be able to predict when the next one is due, so an "early" positive pregnancy test may not be as early as you think. ...Read more

Had a postive pregnancy test but now all symptoms went away. Had 5 miscarriages 1 live birth due to clotting antibody. Is this a possible miscarriage?

Uncertain: You can do the pregnancy test if that was how you initially confirmed the possible pregnancy to yourself. If you already visited with your obstetrician, then have the blood or urine quantitative HCG done again to test for the level by visiting your physician. It is advisable to consult your doctor to obtain information on any intervention that can increase your chances of successful to term birth. ...Read more

Sex december 31 and january 4 and january 16th I got a pos. Pregnancy test january 21 on which of these days did I possibly conceive? Dd sept 28th.

Not Jan. 16: It takes more than 1 week for a pregnancy test to become positive, so january 16 is not possible. Either december 31 or january 4 are dates for possible conception. If you had an ultrasound done before 10 weeks, it might be possible to which date is more likely. ...Read more

Lmp 9/29/16. 30 day cycle. I had to ovulate early, got pos. Pregnancy test 10/24/16. When did I ovulate? How many weeks am I?

Last period: The weeks of gestation are calculated from the date of your last period not from the time of ovulation. Take todays date and calculate back to the first day of your last period. That is how many weeks you are. Later on a sonogram can be done to confirm the accuracy of the calculation. ...Read more

I've Taken 4 Pos. Pregnancy Test. & Doctors At Hospital Confirmed It. But I'm 5 Weeks No Symptoms & Nothing Shows Up On My Ultrasound. Why?

Ectopic pregnancy: At 5 completed weeks of gestation or if the pregnancy hormone concentration in your blood is greater than 1500 units/ml, the pregnancy should be visible on transvaginal ultrasound located inside the uterus. If that is not the case, you are either not quite 5 weeks pregnant, or the pregnancy is somewhere outside the uterus. You need to work closely with your provider. ...Read more

Quinine: Quinine containing products are usually class c by the fda. There are no known birth effects, however, in very large dosages quinine can lead to optic nerve damage and auditory nerve damage. In all probability, there amount of quinine in your cream is not enough to cause nerve damage. ...Read more

Its been six weeks since my abortion. An still getting a strong pregnancy test why is that?

Retained tissue?: It's possible that you have some retained tissue. It's also possible that your hormone level is dropping appropriately. I would recommend you see your doctor. They can perform an ultrasound to ensure uterus empty, as well as order an HCG to see what your hormone level is, quantitatively (by the numbers). Best of luck! ...Read more

I had an abortion at 6 weeks on May 10th. I had unprotected sex on May 15th and 17th. I took a pregnancy test may 21st and Is positive. It's correct?

I had an abortion at 6 weeks on May 10th. I had unprotected sex on May 15th and 17th. I took a pregnancy test may 21st and Is positive. It's correct?

Not likely: Even if you had become pregnant on May 15, it would be too soon for the embryo to make enough HCG for a positive pregnancy test on May 21. The "positive" test may be from residual chorionic from your abortion. It would be prudent to consult your doctor for care. ...Read more
