Do people with thyroid problems have difficult pregnancies with complications?

Do people with thyroid problems have difficult pregnancies with complications?

Can be: If you've had a prior thyroid problem, make sure your thyroid has been returned to normal before you attempt to get pregnant. Then it's just as if you didn't have a problem. The one exception is rare anti-fertility antibodies from hashimoto's thyroiditis, but they can check for those and treat if necessary.

What medicines can give you a false pregnancy?

What medicines can give you a false pregnancy?

Controversial: Pregnancy tests measure the level of HCG in urine or blood. So a woman using HCG to trigger ovulation may as do women using HCG for weight loss. Controversial are meds such as those used to treat epilepsy, parkinson's, some diuretics and some tranquilizers. If positive, see your doctor.

Can taking hCG give me a false pregnancy result?

Can taking hCG give me a false pregnancy result?

Possibly, it depends: Injected HCG such as used for fertility treatments can absolutely give you a false positive on a serum or a urine test within a certain time period. Taking HCG by mouth, which I've seen with the 'hcg diet' is unlikely to show up on a test.

Can you be 2 months pregnant with two false pregnancy test from the hospital around the time of conception and then 4 positive tests the next month?

Can you be 2 months pregnant with two false pregnancy test from the hospital around the time of conception and then 4 positive tests the next month?

Possible: A test may be negative if done too soon after conception. 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. Get HPV vaccine.
