I am doing good
how are you?
I am good too thanks :)
I am a 30 yr old guy
blessed with a baby boy in April 2014
I was not in town for a few months now and my wife had regular periods every month
I returned a week ago
was having intercourse after I can back
initial 2 days I ejaculated outside and after that started using condoms
my Wife's dates were to be between 25th and 30th
she still did not get her periods
I am concerned that she should not be pregnant again
I tried to test it via the strip
but it came out to be nagative
sometimes the strips are not very upto the mark
can u help me?
I would like to know few more things.
Was her periods regular after pregnancy?
but she has not got her periods till date is what is worrying me
the chances of pregnancy is very low.
And the UPT tests are also negative.
so there is no need to worry.
is there any way that I can confirm this??
it is very sensitive test.
as I will be travelling abroad again in next few weeks
don't want to take a chance
is the above test a Urine test?
it will detect HcG levels in the blood.
if that is negative then you can rest assured she is not pregnant
and wait for few more days for the periods to resume.
can you elaborate how would it detect pregency?
This test would detect the Beta HcG levels in blood.
it should be negative if she is not pregnant right?
This hormone is produced only after pregnancy.
is it very commonly available at any of the local testing centers?
So if higher levels are found
then its is positive otherwise negative.
Yes, if test is negative then she is not pregnant.
also wanted to know about the timing for this test
yes, it is done commonly in all the standard labs.
as I said that its not even a week now
there is no timing required. can be done any time of a day.
would it still reflect appropriate levels
as said before it is very sensitive test. If two days pregnancy can also be detected.
Yes, it will
and in case if its positive, what is that I can do that she can avoid this pregnency
Its difficult to be positive but if chance if it is positive then you can go for medical termination of pregnancy after consulting a OBGYN
doctor will give medications for termination
this can be terminated by medication only and no other procedures would not be required?
yes, upto 4 weeks pregnancy can be terminated easily with medications.
Hope all your concerns are been addressed.
you have been a great help
Thanks a bunch
Is there anything else I can help you with?
not at this time Thanks :)
