Can transvaginal ultrasound detect pregnancy 2weeks after unprotected sex and 1week after missed period?

Can  transvaginal ultrasound detect pregnancy 2weeks after unprotected sex and 1week after missed period?

No: No. 2 weeks is too early to see a gestational sac or fetal pole. There may be some thickening of the endometrial lining, but this occurs as you near your cycle anyway. A sac can usually be seen 5-6 weeks and a fetal pole at 6-7 weeks. You can take a pregnancy urine test or blood test to confirm pregnancy at this early stage though. ...Read more

I had positive pregnancy tests 2 weeks after my period  then light spotting for 6 days. Done spotting, still have positive pregnancy tests.  Pregnant?

Pregnancy: You may still have vaginal spotting with a normal intrauterine pregnancy. I recommend, however, that you see your physician to make sure that one you are indeed pregnant and two that your gestation is normal. I would also consider taking prenatal vitamins for the sake of the developing fetus. Alcohol and tobacco cessation are also recommended. ...Read more

Blood pregnancy test 7 days after intercourse and 8 days before period. Will the results be reliable ??

Blood pregnancy test 7 days after intercourse and 8 days before period. Will the results be reliable ??

No, 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. ...Read more

3 weeks late for period. Urine test at dr's 41 days after sex, neg result. But have preg symptoms. Ectopic? Wouldn't test be positive if preg?

Wait: First of all I think you should repeat the pregnancy test on your own. If negative and you still feel bloated a pelvic ultrasound.could be prescribed. Ectopics are very painful and are felt on the left or right side of your abdomen depending which tube is involved. 41 is a little early for menopause but ask when it started in your mother. ...Read more
