Pregnancy (Definition)

It adds a bit of pertussis protection to the antibodies you give baby & helps until they can get their first one at 2m. ...Read more

Anyone herd of detect5 pregnancy test?

Anyone herd of detect5 pregnancy test?

Yup: I'm not impressed... I like the idea of having a test which easily tells you if your HCG level is high enough to see a normal pregnancy on ultrasound or if levels are going up, but this test has too broad a range, still needs to be interpreted, and is not easy to figure out. It's easier to see your doc if you have a high risk pregnancy that requires early detection & evaluation. Good luck. ...Read more

Surgical abortion 7/7/15.blood hcg level 8/6/15= 9. 8/19/15 ovulation positive.8/22/15 pg test positive. No real period since the abortion.Help please?

Pregnant: The most likely explanation is that you are pregnant again. Did you have sex after the abortion? If your BHCG was 9 back on 8.6.15 then that gives the doctor a point of comparison. Another BHCG can be done now. That number can be compared to the other to see if this is a new pregnancy or lingering BHCG from the pregnancy termination. ...Read more

Taken primolut, 3 days late, negative pregnancy test?

Dr. Alvin Lin Dr. Lin
1 doctor agreed:

Norethisterone: Primolut appears to be a brand of norethisterone, used as a form of hormonal birth control. It is also apparently available outside states for use purely to delay one's menses. It's not clear what purpose you intended or how you took this medication. It's possible to be pregnant despite negative test if you test very early. So repeat test in 7d. And go see your prescribing doc. ...Read more

Negative pregnancy test 4-5 weeks after sex. Accurate? Always had irregular periods.

Negative pregnancy test 4-5 weeks after sex. Accurate?  Always had irregular periods.

Most likely: Over the counter pregnancy tests have pretty good accuracy rates. However, there is always a small chance of failure. I would suggest to use condoms from now on and once you have your periods, start using birth control pills. If you do not get your period for another month however, please visit your OB doctor to confirm/rule out pregnancy. ...Read more
