User:if there wud be i wud have known
Doctor:Ok
Doctor:Let me explain.
User:ok
Doctor:Based on the details provided the chances of pregnancy here is very, very unlikely.
Doctor:If a women is menstruating regularly, the most fertile period of the month falls during ovulation
Doctor:and this is unlikely to occur on the 4th or 5th days (1st day is the start of the bleeding).
User:ovaulation period is after 11th day right
Doctor:It varies according to the length of menstrual cycle (number of days between 2 period).
Doctor:In a women who has 28 days between 2 period, the ovulation falls close to the 14th day.
User:ok so btween 9 to 17 it can haapen anytime
User:ok so btween 9 to 17 it can haapen anytime
Doctor:The ovulation days are even further if her cycles are beyond 28 days.
Doctor:I cannot give you the specific date as I do not have the complete details of menstrual cycle.
User:yes i got u..
User:tell me now what should i do now...she is not with me here..m in mumbai
User:tell me now what should i do now...she is not with me here..m in mumbai
User:if you want i can giv you all details now.
Doctor:Based on these facts and the fact that there was no accidents, the chances of pregnancy is less than 1%.
Doctor:Menstrual cycles can get delayed due to other reasons and most likely those are the causes here.
Doctor:However i would suggest her to take up the home pregnancy test to rule out that less than 1% chances.
User:urine test?
User:urine test?
Doctor:If the pregnancy test comes negative then be rest assured that she is not pregnant.
Doctor:Yes, the urine test done with a pregnancy kit.
User:but I read that is effective after 15 days of fertilization
Doctor:Fertilization is a term used to describe when a sperm mixes or fertilizes the ovum.
User:yes
User:yes
Doctor:Accordingly what you heard is right - 15 days after fertilization.
User:blood test?
User:blood test?
Doctor:But theoretically or practically, the fertilization occurs during the intermenstrual period.
User:intermentrual period?
Doctor:A women misses her period if the fertilization has happened 14 to 15 days ago.
User:oh ok
Doctor:So at this point you can get the home pregnancy test.
Doctor:If the test comes negative, then it is very, very unlikely she is pregnant.
Doctor:The blood hCG levels can be done if you wish to confirm this fact.
User:the thing is she cnnt tell her mom before she is sure she is not
Doctor:If either of these test come negative, then you can be rest assured she is not pregnant.
User:ok
User:last que
User:last que
Doctor:If she wishes to keep this a secret, then urine pregnancy test is the best option.
Doctor:it is a simple test and can be done at home.
Doctor:The result of the test is accurate in almost all cases.
User:ok
User:if by chance
Doctor:Is there any other query?
User:yes
User:last
User:last
User:i by chance result is positive
User:what should be done
Doctor:If the test comes positive, then you/she can decide whether or not to continue pregnancy.
User:we dont
User:that is decided
Doctor:If there is no plans to continue pregnancy then she can terminate the pregnancy safely through a gynecologist.
Doctor:A preliminary ultrasound check is required before termination
User:how long n sever is abortion?
User:severe*
Doctor:to confirm the products is within the uterus and not ectopic.
Doctor:Abortion can be safely performed without much hassles within 8 - 12 weeks of pregnancy.
Doctor:In broad terms first 2- 2 and half months since the last menstrual period.
Doctor:When you decide to terminate within 12 weeks, her gynecologist will prescribe her oral drugs along with vaginal suppositories
Doctor:They can be taken at home.
