Pregnancy (Definition)

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

What is the earliest one should take a pregnancy test, and what are the earliest signs of pregnancy?

2 to 3 weeks: Testing too late adds to the anxiety of waiting. Testing too early means you will not be totally sure that you are not pregnant, even if the result is negative. Generally, my advice is to test 2 weeks after intercourse. If result is positive, then you know early. If result is negative and you still have no menstruation, test again 3 weeks after intercourse to be sure. ...Read more

I took four pregnancy test and they are the ones that have the plus sign for the possitive, to of them the plus had both lines but one of them is ligh?

Home pregnancy tests: You have a common question. Tests used by labs are basically the same as your home test. If there is any advantage, it is that they can "spin" the urine which concentrates the it (& hormone) and may show a very early positive test better. But if you do the test with first morning urine it is very accurate. A quantitative blood HCG level at your doctor will confirm test and your dates. Good luck! ...Read more

What do I do in this situation? I have taken a pregnancy test and it came up negative. Although I still have every single sign of early pregnancy. What should I do?

As: As doctors, anytime a fertile, sexually active woman has an abnormally light or missed period, the first thing we do is rule out pregnancy. When did you take your pregnancy test in reference to your last period? Did you take it too early? A home pregnancy test is only 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period, so another negative test would help confirm that you are not pregnant. Or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. ...Read more

Read instructions: Usually it takes two lines for the test to be positive. Please read the instructions that came with the test kit, carefully and follow the guidelines rigorously. If you had unprotected sex and missed a period, the time to do the test is 5-7 days after a missed period. Use first morning urine and follow the 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.

Pregnancy unlikely: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more

I have taken 3 pregnancy test and got positives and these test were the same brand/pack but different packs I'm getting negative results. Why is this?

Technique: If you had sex since your last period and have missed your period and are getting variable results on urine test, it would be prudent to get a blood test for HCG. If you missed your period by 4-5 days you may do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the 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.

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's 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. ...Read more
