Took 5, 000iu of pregnyl 6/14, 6/19, 6/24. When will it be out of my system so I can do a pregnancy test?
Patience: 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. There's no reason to test sooner, but if done sooner, a result might not be accurate in this case 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
