Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

I'm 16 days late and I just found out Friday I got a bv and yeast infection and I took 4 pregnancy test all negative what's wrong with me?

Treat the vaginitis : Vaginitis caused by bacterias or by yeast/fungus can be quite troublesome but fortunately can be treated. If after these "4 neg. tests" you are concerned about an unplanned pregnancy and need guidance about safe sex practices, consider discussing your reproductive life plans with a knowledgeable Gyn who could offer you an intrauterine device or a subdermal implant . Be safe. Use condoms too. ...Read more

Can yeast infection and urine infection affect the pregnancy test results......?

Can yeast infection and urine infection affect the pregnancy test results......?

Shouldn't: Neither should affect the protein the pregnancy tests are detecting. Also, the information packet with my in-house pregnancy tests does not list either as affecting the accuracy or sensitivity. Whatever the case, we always follow up with a blood sample sent to the laboratory to confirm. ...Read more

I took a cheap pregnancy test first thing in the morning and got a very faint second line (i took povacare medication for a yeast infection). I tested 2 first response pregnancy tests about 30 minutes after and both were negative. Am i pregnant?

Test again tomorrow: There is no really good reason to test multiple times in one day, IMHO. I suggest if you get an early test it makes alot more sense repeating the next day: then you can be pretty certain of your result. Good wishes. ...Read more

Possibly pregnant but it's Too early for positive pregnancy test. Prescribed two diflucan for a yeast infection. Took both. ? Have I harmed my maybe baby?

Diflucan/Pregnancy: Studies show that diflucan has been shown to cause a higher rate of miscarriage at 7-22 weeks: - JAMA. 2016;315(1):58-67. Studies also show that mothers exposed to higher doses of fluconazole showed a higher risk of congenital abnormalities such as cleft lip, palate. ACOG and the FDA recognized a study in 2016 that showed a higher risk of miscarriage. I would personally recommend a serum HCG asap ...Read more

Is it safe to take diflucan (fluconazole) while trying to conceive? I have a yeast infection but it is too early to take a pregnancy test.

Is it safe to take diflucan (fluconazole) while trying to conceive? I have a yeast infection but it is too early to take a pregnancy test.

Diflucan (fluconazole): Is really safe but it does have liver toxicity for some and pregnancy needs to be as drug free as possible. Yeast feeds on sugar so if you get rid of that you might "starve it out. A course of Nystatin would be O.K. Because it is not absorbed from the bowel and that is the headquarters of the infection. ...Read more

Why do I get dizzy, have a yeast infection, gassy, frequent urination, & bowel movements a lot? Had sex oct 22, 2015. Too soon to do pregnancy test?

You should check: the pregnancy test 2-3 weeks after the initial intercourse, and if that is negative check again 1 week after. Given those symptoms the reason could be anything, ranging from pregnancy to indigestion to Urinary tract infection to PMS. Though PMS frequently brings about headaches and body ache. ...Read more

Two questions. Could a yeast infection cause one to urinate more often? And can a UTI affect a pregnancy test to come out false?

Probably no and no: A yeast infection can cause inflammation of the urethra and certainly make urination more painful. A UTI can certainly cause you to urinate more frequently because your bladder is irritated and wants to stay as empty as possible. A UTI has no effect on the accuracy of a pregnancy test. ...Read more

In november i had a very odd period. It was very very light, very short, and brown. No period in dec. Yeast infection now and negative pregnancy test?

Irregular cycle: There are many causes of irregular cycle. Pregnancy is always a possibility. Vaginitis (yeast or other) can cause bleeding and brown discharge. Hormone irregularities can also interfere with normal cycles. I recommend keeping a menstrual chart and if still irregular in 2 months you need to consult a physician. ...Read more

My yeast infection cleared up 2 days before my period. Im now 6 days late.Pregnancy test & was neg.Should I retest in a week? Infection makin me skip?

May be: It would do no harm to repeat the test. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor.

It : It would be reasonable to take a repeat pregnancy test in that situation. Taking it with your first morning urine can be helpful, as that is when the urine is most concentrated. Ask your pharmacist for the most accurate test that is also easy to read. If your symptoms persist, it would be reasonable to consult your physician. ...Read more
