Hi I'm curious as to how can hpts b trusted if some women get negs when they infact r pregnant. They have to do beta hcg or don't find out till after ?
No worries: Pregnant women do not get negative pregnancy tests at 3 or more weeks after sex.

If one or both of the tests are positive 3 weeks after sex, then she is pregnant (or was pregnant and her pregnancy failed within the past few days). ...Read more
How much time do you recommend that a couple waits before trying to conceive after miscarriage? I know these answers vary. I'm trying to get some opinions.
Conception: After miscarriage. You must remember that even though you miscarried you were pregnant and that is a big stress on your body from which you need to recovery. You also need to grieve, both of you. Because of this I generally recommend my patients wait 4-6 months to start trying again. It is normal to feel like it may happen again so you will worry a lot. May your God be with you. ...Read more

This could not have been predicted or prevented, which is why we have hospitals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There are none: There are no exercises or physical maneuvers that will terminate a pregnancy, and any attempt to do so would be very dangerous for you. A pregnancy can be safely terminated with a simple medication at this stage. A local Planned Parenthood or primary care doctor (outside of a religious medical institution) can provide either this service or a timely referral for termination. Don't wait though. ...Read more

Can we check for pregnancy test after 2weeks of intercourse..can we get accurate result after 2weeks..i am eager to check whether i am pregnant r not?
After missed period: 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. A negative result on a test done too early is not reliable. ...Read more
