Abortion?: I presume you are asking what your options are in case of undesired early pregnancy. If you are less than 7 weeks along, medical abortion is possible with safety and convenience, although hemorrhage is still possible especially if you have fibroids, or your dates are further along than you think. If you are over 7 weeks, dilatation and curettage is warranted. Talk to your gynecologist! ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. 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

What is the best time to take a Quantitative Serum Beta HCG test?

What is the best time to take a Quantitative Serum Beta HCG test?

3 wks after sex: There is no need to rush. A pregnancy test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 wks 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 isn't needed. ...Read more

Way early: Even the most sensitive pregnancy test is not reliable until about 11 days post-fertilization; it doesn't do any good testing earlier. Generally any level below 4-5 should be considered negative. Good wishes. ...Read more

No: If you are PG you are PG somewhere, hopeful intrauterine. The embryo and the placenta create the chemicals that are tested for so if the hug is + you are PG. If not, you most probable are not. If you have an ectopic signs of pregnancy will begin and the abnormal implantation will soon be observed. Keep trying if you wish. Good luck. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex on 21 Feb, got last period on 5 Feb. Pregnancy test kits as tested on 18 March negative. Blood test beta HCG <1.20mIU. Pregnant?

Had unprotected sex on 21 Feb, got last period on 5 Feb. Pregnancy test kits as tested on 18 March negative. Blood test beta HCG <1.20mIU. Pregnant?

No: Based on the information you provided, you are not pregnant. It would be prudent to repeat the home pregnancy test in a week, unless you get a period by then.
Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

See OB ASAP: See OB. You maybe miscarried or you may have a non viable pregnancy or simply first trimester bleeding. The way to find out is to have an OB perform a transvaginal ultrasound. If there are fetal heart tones, then close follow up is needed. Do not go on any long trips or travel by air or out of a metro area where health care is accessible in case you do miscarry and bleed heavily. ...Read more

It is possible that: You were pregnant and now you are not. A quanitative HCG test should be able to give you an exact answer. You might need to have it done more than once. Remember every method of birth control has a failure rate of some type, but the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is has a very very low failure rate, but it is not zero ...Read more

Can drinking a lot of water before dried blood spot test decrease papp-a and beta hCG test results? They were both low.

Can drinking a lot of water before dried blood spot test decrease papp-a and beta hCG test results? They were both low.

Not the cause: Drinking water should not alter a blood test. You would have to drink a lot of water to dilute a test. Always discuss a test result with your doctor, he/she can explain the results and their expectation. You can bring a family member also to help write down what is said for later review. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My last periods was on 4th july. I had unprotected sex on 7th august. I did beta hcg test yesterday and I was 83.9mcl. Is it normal.?

Normal pregnancy: The information you provided showed positive pregnancy. If this pregnancy is based on your lmp, the hcg should be much higher than what you have now.
Therefore you need to follow the hcg every two days to confirm doubling or decline. If your hcg rises to about 2000,
you can get a transvaginal ultrasound. Decline of the hcg level indicate failed pregancy. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

I did the beta HCG test and result is less than 1.20 what is mean.?? but my last period date is 20th june.

Negative: This is essentially negative in most labs. It certainly is not consistent with a pregnancy that started at the end of June or first of July. There is something else going on. It could be a missed miscarriage or blighted ovum but you need to see a doctor to get it checked out. ...Read more

When should I take blood quantitative beta HCG test after intercourse/sex? Is it accurate enough if I do that 2 weeks after intercourse/sex?

When should I take blood quantitative beta HCG test after intercourse/sex? Is it accurate enough if I do that 2 weeks after intercourse/sex?

It depends...: A blood test is fairly accurate about 7-10 days after intercourse. Qualitative (not quantitative) blood tests are usually used to detect pregnancy. Home urine pregnancy tests are about 99% accurate if it has been one week since a period was missed. They may detect a pregnancy earlier than that but are less reliable to rule out pregnancy. ...Read more

Last month I did a beta hCG test and my hCG level after 12 days of my ovaluation was 4.7 doctors said that I had a early misacarriage was I preg?

Possibly: Hard to say after only 12 days, but usually, depending on the lab, a value less than 5.0 is a negative test. Your doctor could have been right, or you could have just gotten your regular period. ...Read more

I took beta hcg test 3 weeks after LMP (1week after ovulation). Will I get accurate positive result or will it still be negative even I pregnant?

Too soon to test: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

Conflicting results: A BHCG negative means that you are not pregnant. A BHCG of 1300 means that you are early pregnant. Both test results can not be true if they were done on the same day. ...Read more

Is bleeding when pregnant (pregnant with pariod) -the reason why beta hCG test don't pick up on 9 weeks (last sex aug.9 beta hcgg test on oct.6)?

Is bleeding when pregnant (pregnant with pariod) -the reason why beta hCG test don't pick up on 9 weeks (last sex aug.9 beta hcgg test on oct.6)?

No.: If your HCG is negative and you are experiencing vaginal bleeding, then you are not pregnant; that is exactly how a miscarriage presents in the first few weeks after conception and many of them go unrecognized because women do not take pregnancy tests immediately after a late period. I am sorry for the bad news. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and keep trying! ...Read more
