Bloated for almost four months now. Took a pregnancy test at the doctors office, came back negative. Should I be concern?
Pretty quick...: Pretty quick probably as soon as you notice a missed period, but if you want to do a stealth attack on that poor little thing growing in there, then, depending on the test, about 10 days. Why? You taking bets? BTW, a commercial, over-the-counter urine test is pretty good. And just think, instead of waiting at the doctor's office you can wait in line at Rite-Aid! ...Read more

Is a first response early result pregnancy test more accurate than a dr. S office urine test? My home pregnancy test was pos but doc office was neg!
Not likely.: No test is 100% accurate, unfortunately. I'd suggest waiting a week, repeating the home test, and if it's still positive, going back to your doctor's. If the doctor's office urine test is still negative, your doctor can order a blood test for pregnancy, which is more accurate. ...Read more

Yes...and no: Docs can provide pregnancy tests that are essentially the same — the urine hCG detection. They can also obtain a serum hCG in the mother's blood, which will pick up a pregnancy much faster due to its high sensitivity. That said, unless you are high-risk, your doc may not be able to justify it to your insurance company. ...Read more
