Doctor :   k
Doctor :   it usually shows negative till 5 to 10 days of 1st missed period
Doctor :   did you take up any scan?
User :   no not yet i kind of wanted a positive result before i did
Doctor :   k
Doctor :   according to your symptoms i strongly feel that u are probably pregnant
Doctor :   so no need to worry about the tests
User :   and i had a another question when i had the spotting earlier in the month it was like pink and brown. then it was bright red and was kind of like my period. it also had some little clots in it but only in the toilet.
User :   is that something to worry about or not?? because i had absolutley no pain or cramping with that. So i wasnt sure if it could have been a miscarriage or not
Doctor :   nothing to worry the clots is always an ominous sign but the implantation bleeding pattern happens in the same way with change of colours
User :   so when should i test again?
Doctor :   its better to go for physical examination or to get an ultrasound at the end of 3 months
Doctor :   or you can get an urine pregnancy test after 2 nd of next month
User :   okay well i will do that. is it better to urinate on the test or into a cup and then dip the test in it? i just want to know which i more accurate, i hate being in suspense haha
Doctor :its better to collect a fresh urine sample in morning in a clean and sterile container bottle
Doctor :and then get 1 or 2 drops of urine from the container using a filler on the test device
User :   okay and any precautions of advice??
User :   or*
Doctor :   if i am not wriong i have given you the precautions regarding miscarriage in our previous meet.. i remember
User :   oh yeah, okay so i will have to wait until after the 2nd to test. I have been having really bad heartburn and have been taking pepcid. is that okay to take
Doctor :   heart burn in the sense?
Doctor :please explain on it
Doctor :since when you are having?
User :   I have been having alot of heartburn this week. like indgestion, pretty frequently actually. so i have been taking pepcid but my fiancee doesnt think that it is safe to take in early pregnancy
Doctor :   Pepcid is considered a pregnancy Category B medication. This means that it is probably safe for use during pregnancy. However, because Pepcid has not been studied in pregnant women, the full risks of using it during pregnancy are not known
Doctor :   heart burn happens in case of early pregnancy
Doctor :   so no need to worry nuch till 8 to 10 weeks
Doctor :   it will fade away later
Doctor :   so have proper food in time and avoid tablets without consulting a doctor
User :   good okay and one more thing, i am constipated and i took some Colace is that okay also
Doctor :ya that is k no problem
Doctor :try to eat fibre rich food so that nothing happens
User :   okay well thank you so much and i will be testing after the 2nd
Doctor :   k
Doctor :   Is there any thing else I can help you with?
