I am Dr. XXXXXXX
How can I help you?
I have some doubts regarding pregnancy
Please proceed with your query.
We have been planning a baby recently
this month...my wife missed her periods
we tested with PregaNews and it was positive
now....should we go see a doctor immediately?
or wait for some time
You can consult a gynecologist for starting on supplements.
Since it is not an emergency, you can wait and consult.
It is best to start consultations when first time pregnancy is confirmed.
That is not only to confirm the pregnancy, but also to check the position of the foetus, the general health condition of the mother etc.
So, you can do one thing.
Get a consultation done within one week or so.
and...to confirm the pregnancy, should we get another test done from a test lab ?
before going to the doctor?
at the clinic itself? or will she refer us to a lab?
If the doctor is in the hospital, usually they will have sonography facility there itself.
But if they are consulting from clinic, only few doctors will be having their own machine.
I think that will be all for now Doctor
Thanks a lot for your help :)
Have I cleared all your concerns?
Thanks for consulting me.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Have a good day!!
Bye for now.
