Is 24 days after sex long enough to get accurate pregnancy test results?

Is 24 days after sex long enough to get accurate pregnancy test results?

If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Rubella igG and igM b test results show 0.13 OD ratio for igG and 0.25 OD ratio for igM. Can i plan for pregnancy? should i get vaccinated before?

Rubella igG and igM b test results show 0.13 OD ratio for igG and 0.25 OD ratio for igM. Can i plan for pregnancy? should i get vaccinated before?

I believe they will advise getting vaccinated before attempting pregnancy. Good luck! ...Read more

I performed two pregnancy test.Results were negative.But i still didn't get menses.Last mense date was 2nd feb.I have hyperthyroidism.Reason for delay?

May be thyroid: Hyperthyroidism can definitely affect fertility, ovulation, and menses frequency, duration, and flow. But if you've had the hyperthyroidism since February, and still aren't having periods, it may be time to look a little deeper. I would hope that your hyperthyroidism would have been treated and showing some response to treatment in 5 months. If so, the periods should become more regular soon. ...Read more
