Doctor :   ya mixture of the above colours
Doctor :   you can get any its not comulsory that u get all the three
User :   ok, so what is you advise to me to do now, and you final diagosis based on my symptoms?
Doctor :   did you get my point
User :   yes
Doctor :   based on your symptoms i think you are robably pregnant and if you get a bleeding you need not see a doctor ..
Doctor :   think that the bleeding is due to miscarriage no need of scan
User :   should my stomach hurt or should it fee tender/full or is there any other symptons that I should look out for?
Doctor :   but if you don't get bleeding then get an scan done for confirmation of pregnancy
Doctor :   That you can't realise a doctor can exmaine by conducting physical examination and tell you
User :   ??7
Doctor :   you can't feel stomach fullness untill 2 or 3 month
Doctor :   so you can't realise.. a doctor should examine you
Doctor :   are you there?
User :   ok thank you for your advice, should I wait to take a test or do you suggest if this is implantation bleeding my hormone levels would have increased and would show now
User :   or wait a little longer
Doctor :   scaning is the best test than harmones... So better wait for some more time
Doctor :   please send correct feedback as it is more valuable
User :   would a scan show very very very early pregancy
Doctor :   ya it will show.. you are now 1 month 9 days pregnant
User :   ok so would you suggest testing or just booking in for an appointment
User :   with a doctor
Doctor :   anything is fine i suggest to go for testing
User :   I just am not convinced that it is going to show anything different from when i took one last friday

Doctor :   it is urine test and the one you are going to do is scaning of abdomen and pelvis.. which shows pregnancy for sure
Doctor :   it is called ultrasound abdomen
Doctor :   urine test can be false most of the times
User :   so I can ask the doctor for this, will they not just do a urine test on me or a blood test, i thought the first scan was after this was confirmed
Doctor :   and it will not detect upto 1 month in few cases
User :   I have never herd of anyone gegt
User :   getting a scan to confirm pregancy
Doctor :   there are other harmone tests also
Doctor :   first preference is to go for urine test, if it is negative then harmone tests then scanning or physical examination
Doctor :   you can go for any i have suggested you the best since you are very much worried..
User :   how does physical examination work
Doctor :   that depends on the doctor who conducts .. if he is accurate he can feel the fetus and confirm pregnancy.. even it can't be differentiated live or dead that easily..
User :   by feeling the stomach
User :   or internally
Doctor :   as in case of miscaarriage it will be dead
Doctor :   not only stomach also vaginal examination
User :   ok thank you
Doctor :   is there any thing else that i can help you with
