Probably not: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

The home pregnant urine test with conception indicator: was told 1st morning urine for 92% accuracy. Wouldn't the hCG be there no matter what?

I had a CT scan done after negative pregnant urine test in the ER 5 days before missed period. I'm worried the test was wrong. Is that possible with third child?

I had a CT scan done after negative pregnant urine test in the ER 5 days before missed period. I'm worried the test was wrong. Is that possible with third child?

CT or preg test?: Are you worried about the preganncy test or the ct? Neither a home nor a serum preganncy test could be positive 5 days before a missed period. I would not trouble about the ct, it's considered safe even if you are pregnant (so long as it's really needed.). ...Read more

Can blood test show if I am pregnant. If urine test showed negative?

Can blood test show if I am pregnant. If urine test showed negative?

Possibly.: These tests are good, but like all tests, can have variations. Blood tests can detect this shortly after implantation as well as urine tests that are sensitive, but less sensitive blood and urine tests need 3-4 more days to become positive. No two people are alike either, so that can cause variations also. Time and a specific quantitative test can best confirm this, so see your dr. To be sure. ...Read more

I had protected sex with a girl on Tue 16, today (22 feb) she says is pregnant aftr urine test, can baby be mine? She's quite active w other men as wel

I had protected sex with a girl on Tue 16, today (22 feb) she says is pregnant aftr urine test, can baby be mine? She's quite active w other men as wel

No: Forgive my frankness. A urine pregnancy test will not be positive six days after conception. She'd also have no reason to test herself this soon. I strongly suspect she is pregnant by another guy and for whatever reason wants you and other people to think you're the father. Think about contacting an attorney and stay away from her. I'm sorry this is happening. ...Read more

I am 21 wks pregnant. My urine test showed a urobilinogen level of 0.2 then within 2 weeks it read 2.0. Is this something that I should be considered?

I am 21 wks pregnant. My urine test showed a urobilinogen level of 0.2 then within 2 weeks it read 2.0. Is this something that I should be considered?

Yes: Urobilinogen in the urine comes from bilirubin which in turn comes from dying (destroyed) red blood cells' hemoglobin and from further metabolism in the liver. Liver disease or Increased RBC destruction may yield more bilirubin which passesthrough the bile to the intestines where yellow byproducts are formed ...Read more

I've been on contraceptives for 8 years I stopped from jan 2017, recently I've been having pregnancy symptoms and feeling pregnant. First urine test from doctor came light positive and home test came negative after the two week wait.

I've been on contraceptives for 8 years I stopped from jan 2017, recently I've been having pregnancy symptoms and feeling pregnant. First urine test from doctor came light positive and home test came negative after the two week wait.

Tests are accurate: Urine pregnancy tests are accurate and not affected by food, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a very reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more

Period 6 days late, neg test, lower back pain stomach ache sore boobs leg cramp and headache, could I be pregnant when urine test was negative?

Period 6 days late, neg test, lower back pain stomach ache sore boobs leg cramp and headache, could I be pregnant when urine test was negative?

Maybe not, but...: Symptoms such as nausea (with or without vomiting), some fatigue (feeling less energetic), a sharper/stronger sense of smell, mild soreness/swelling of the breasts, and maybe some food aversions and cravings, can happen with other conditions, not just with pregnancy. However, if the pregnancy test was done less than 2 weeks after possible conception, a woman can repeat the test a week later. ...Read more

Miscarried Nov 2014. Spotted once Jan 10th. Positive urine pregnant test 01/16 could this be a new pregnancy?

Can a blood pregnant test show up positive before a urine pregnant test? How early can the blood test show positive?

Yes: A serum (blood) pregnancy test can be (+) as early as 7- 10 days post conception since it can detect very low levels of the pregnancy hormone beta hcg, the test gets more accurate as the pregnancy advances however. ...Read more

If it takes about 10days for a urine pregnant test to turn pos (+), and the threshold is 25ml/iu, than how much longer does it take to reach 600ml/iu hcg?

If it takes about 10days for a urine pregnant test to turn pos (+), and the threshold is 25ml/iu, than how much longer does it take to reach 600ml/iu hcg?

Doubling Effect: In the 1st trimester, we expect HCG levels to double every 48-72 hours in early days. I am assuming you are around 4 weeks right now? A single HCG value doesn't give enough information about the health or viability of the pregnancy. From 1200-6000, the HCG usually takes 72-96 hours to double. Above 6000 iu, the HCG often takes over four days to double. So, the rate of increase slows. ...Read more

Can a urine pregnant test pick up a result only after fertilization since there are small traces of hcg?

Can a urine pregnant test pick up a result only after fertilization since there are small traces of hcg?

No: Although the embryo does start making HCG (pregnancy hormone) very early, in order for it to be detected in the blood the early placenta needs to be developed and allow for passage of this hormone into the maternal circulation. A positive HCG level following ivf egg collection will be from the residual HCG in your system following the HCG trigger shot. This HCG is usually gone by 9 days after shot. ...Read more

If it takes about 10 days for a urine pregnant test to reach its threshold of 25ml/iu, how much longer would it take for hCG level of 600 to be reached?

Variable: There is wide variation in the levels of hcg. However, the levels can rise very quickly and it may take less than a week for levels to go to 600. See this site for more info.

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
