Doctor:Welcome back
User:Hello doctor, Can I ask you a question right now?
Doctor:Please proceed with your question.
User:Today my wife took Prega News pregnancy kit test and we are seeing two lines on the kit. As per the information on the kit, we believe that she is positive.
User:Please let me know if our understanding is correct?
Doctor:That is right.
Doctor:If two lines are found, then it is positive for pregnancy.
User:wow. So indeed she is pregnant then. we are very happy. Do I need to personally meet a doctor right away to check again?
Doctor:May I know when was her last menstrual period?
User:Last time it was around 8th of march
Doctor:This makes her 5 completed weeks of pregnancy.
Doctor:You can start her on tablet folvite 5mg tablets.
Doctor:You can plan to consult on obstetrician probably in the next couple of weeks.
Doctor:She will order for other blood tests and ultrasound scan
Doctor:which are routine during early pregnancy.
User:ok doctor. Thank you very much for your quick response. Have a good day ahead
Doctor:Obstetrician visit is not an immediate requirement unless she is alright now and has no bleeding.
User:infact she is okay but she thinks that
Doctor:Congratulations!! and good health.
User:its better to meet the doctor personally than depending on these kits
Doctor:The tests are highly accurate.
Doctor:False positive cases are almost zero.
User:but doctor there is one thing..
Doctor:Start her on folic acid (folvite 5mg).
Doctor:This is an immediate requirement.
Doctor:See the doctor in the next couple of weeks for further evaluation.
User:she said that one line is bright and second line is little think in color but when she put couple of more drops on the place holder then both lines are bright now.. so still there is no issue right?
Doctor:It is recommended to test with 2-3 drops of urine; but sometimes especially during early pregnancy we do see such occurrence.
Doctor:But since the line became strongly positive, there is very less doubt in her being pregnant.
Doctor:You can start the medicine anyway.
Doctor:Consult the gynecologist in the next 2 weeks time.
Doctor:She will order for an ultrasound scan to check the site of implantation
Doctor:and fetal heart rate.
Doctor:That will confirm her viable pregnancy.
Doctor:Hope I am clear.
Doctor:Do you have any more questions?
User:how many folvite tables does she needs to take per day and is it before food or after food?
Doctor:one tablet of 5mg folvite a day. It doesn't interact much with food, therefore she can take it either before or after food.
Doctor:Is there any other questions?
User:Thats all docotor. Thank you very much for answering very patiently.
Doctor:Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
