What does it mean when your 6dpo and pregnancy test has a smudged negative and then disappears later?
A need for patience: Doing a pregnancy test at 6 days after ovulation means there is a need for more patience. Having an endless amount of patience is one of the most important things to achieve for any future parent. A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 1 week after missing a period (or 3 weeks after sex, for women with irregular periods). There is usually no need to test sooner than that.
Why would someone start feeling nauseous every night around 5 or 6 p.m and the women takes a pregnancy test and comes back Negitive?
Find symptom's cause: Nausea/vomiting may be gi-related (food poisoning, peptic disease, gastroparesis, due to biliary & pancreatic disease, gas/bloat syndrome, small bowel problems). Consider "central" causes: motion sickness, vertigo, migraine headache, brain problems (some very serious). Also, rule out infection (? Urinary tract), medication side effects, pregnancy, & even reaction to stress. Find & treat cause.
Hpt: At least one early pregnancy test product states it can provide results 6 days prior to a missed period. The company states it is > 99% accurate the day of the expected period. If you are using a standard pregnancy test would wait until you miss a period. If negative and still no period would repeat HPT in a week. Take care.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends what type: Many urines can measure down to25- 30 miu a few even lower but the concemtartion of the urine can effect the accuarcy, but a blood test measures down to 5 miu and is not affected obviously by urine concentration, and no urine test can measure that low.
1-2 weeks: Don't guess. Take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.
Depends: A blood pregnancy test is very accurate. A urine pregnancy test less. A urine pregnancy test can show a negative result when you are pregnant and very rarely a positive result when you are not. Also blood and urine tests can be both negative despite a pregnancy if the test is done too early.See 1 more doctor answer
10 days: 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.
