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. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Am a 24yr old female, had blood in mucus this morning. ECG, Chest CT, urine test results look normal. waiting for blood test results Whats wrong?

Bloody mucus: You don't say where the mucus is coming from. If you're coughing it up which is suggested from your chest CT test notation, you need to be sure you follow up. There are lots of places in the respiratory tract it could be coming from. ...Read more

20 days late slimy egg white discharge, but negative at home test plus negative test from the hospital... Not a blood test tho.. Can i be pregnant ?

Testing: Although these symptoms are not specific, it is more likely that you have an infection. 20 days late is a concern for pregnancy but not a rule. You say you had a hospital test ? What kind? You need to go back to your OB gyn and get tested for an infection, too. ...Read more

What is a control:positive in a western blot test? All 10 bands negative & interpretation says neg for hiv 1&2. Lab said it's a test setting. Help!

What is a control:positive in a western blot test? All 10 bands negative & interpretation says neg for hiv 1&2. Lab said it's a test setting. Help!

Quality control: In a lab test, the control is the test done by the lab at the same time as when the lab tests the patient's sample. If the control test worked properly, meaning it was positive when a positive control result was expected, or it was negative when a negative control result was expected, then the lab knows that the testing done on the patient's sample is reliable and accurate. ...Read more

A lab reported my ANA test result -ve, cut off rate: 1.117, sample rate: 0.198. They used immulite 2000 rai analyzer. Is it standard, reliable report?

It's just a lab: As a pathologist, i'm well-acquainted with the pitfalls of all ANA testing. The real decision is whether to treat your joint pain as lupus or one of its ana-positive variants. Many healthy folks have some ANA on board. The value that's returned from the lab is only one piece of the puzzle in working up rheumatologic disease. ...Read more

Can i pass a drug test using one day old urine cheap drug test by the way?

Drug test: Probably not, since most likely won't be accurate and outside urines are usually never accepted Also it really depends on what facility is doing the testing and also what drugs are being tested for. Usually drug screens are very supervised and depending on the company doing it, might have to be observed by another person to avoid any illegal tampering of the urine. ...Read more

13Days after sex if i test for a 10 panel STD test of chlamydia gonorea syphilis etc will test results be acurate ?

No.: How will you be testing for these agents? Some require culture, some depend on antibody production, some use DNA technology. Tests dependent on antibody production are not likely to turn positive in two weeks. It would be preferable to see your doctor for the correct choice of tests. ...Read more
