User :   I have delivered a girl baby on Oct 2009. Till Nov I got bleeding.From Dec to till now I did not get my periods. I am still feeding my baby and also taking lactare to increase the milk supply. Last month 13th I had intercourse with my husband....We used condoms but it teared, I took home pregnancy test day on saturday (ie) 6th it was negative so its 22nd after the sex. I consulted with my gyne she asked me to take Meprate 10mg for 5 days 2 times a day. this the third day of my tablets. I would like to know your opinion.
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
Let me read it
User :   Hello
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :   What was the delivery date?
User :   I don't want to conceive now. Oct 14th 2009
User :   Just before the chat I again took a home pregnancy test and its negative
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :   And when did you get your bleeding in November?

User :   its only 20 mts chat so if you answer quickly it would be a great help for me
Doctor :   Sure

User :   till Nove i havee bleeded
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :  
and later you have not resumed your periods as such
Doctor :  
is that right?
User :   yes
Doctor :  
I can understand that you are pretty anxious about your condition
User :   yes
Doctor :  
Now the chances of pregnancy in a lactating mother is only less
Doctor :  
and moreover the test has come negative twice
User :   will i get periods after taking meprate
Doctor :  
Yes you should get it
User :   thank you
Doctor :  
So now the next line of management
User :   whatever i have its not easily digesting. its like in my throat
User :   mine was a c-section delivery
Doctor :  
is that you shall need to report to your doctor after the medications
Doctor :  
and you should go for Serum HCG tests
Doctor :  
rather than urine pregnancy test
User :   she asked me to contact the first day of my period
Doctor :  
for final confirmation
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
but if you do not get your periods after 5 days of completing the medication, that is Meprate
User :   do you think i might be pregnant
Doctor :  
then you should report back
Doctor :  
I have told that the chance is negligible in your case
Doctor :  
as the tests are negative
User :   she asked me to wait for a week
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
and if you do not get your periods back
Doctor :  
then go for Serum HCG
User :   as i have taken meprate will that affect the home pregnancy test
Doctor :  
No it does not
User :   what's that is it a urine or a blood test?
Doctor :  
that is a blood test
User :   ok
Doctor :  
and is confirmatory
User :   whatever i have its not easily digesting. its like in my throat. is that a sign of pregnancy
User :   or is it due to breast feeding
Doctor :   No they are not specific signs

Doctor :  
and should be ignored for now
Doctor :  
Urine pregnancy test is more reliable than those signs
User :   this is 25th day afrer my sex
User :   so if it is positive it should have shown right?
Doctor :   Yes it should have shown

Doctor :  
and there is no need to repeat it
Doctor :  
You should go for blood test rather
Doctor :  
as the next line
User :   sorry doctor whay i am so worrying is. I want to take care of my baby and don't want another baby now
Doctor :   I do understand your concern

Doctor :  
and medically as well, it is not advisable
User :   when can i take the blood test
User :   if its positive and if i take abortion pills will that affect the breast feeding?
Doctor :  
5 days after completing the Meprate course
Doctor :  
dont think of hypthetical situations now
Doctor :  
if at all positive
Doctor :  
your gynec can assist you for furher managment
User :   I pray to god that I should get my periods within 5 days of taking the pills
Doctor :  
Good
Doctor :  
and do calm down as well
Doctor :  
No need to be so tense of it
User :   at time I have lower abdominal pain
Doctor :
