Hi,
Thanks for the query.

Sometimes urine pregnancy test cannot detect early pregnancy and can give false positive or false negative results.
So you can go for repeat test with early morning midstream urine sample or for blood test for pregnancy.
Blood test will give more accurate result compared with urine test.
Start taking folic acid supplements from now-onwards.

Take care.

Hi,
You can wait for a week to repeat the HPT. As HPTs are not so sensitive as to detect low levels of hormone, blood test is better. You can also get a sonogram done to see the condition of the ovaries and uterus as follicular study is essential after induction of ovulation to look for signs of ovulation and also for hyper-stimulation of the ovaries. I advice you to see your doctor and get further suggestions. Do not take any self-medication. Take care.

HELLO THERE.

THANKS FOR WRITING.

YES YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY WAIT FOR THE TRUE RESULT AND REPEAT THE URINE TEST FOR PREGNANCY IN A WEEK.

ELSE YOU CAN GET A BLOOD TEST FOR BETA HCG IF YOU WISH TO BE ABSOLUTELY SURE.

MISSED PERIODS WITH HISTORY OF TREATMENT WITH CLOMID AND SYMPTOMS OF PREGNANCY HAVE TO BE RULED OUT COMPLETELY FOR PREGNANCY BEFORE YOU GO FOR ANY MEDICATION TO INDUCE PERIODS.

IN CASE YOU DO NOT MENSTRUATE IN A WEEK AND YOUR URINE TEST REMAINS NEGATIVE, THEN KINDLY CONSULT YOUR GYNECOLOGIST FOR APPROPRIATE MEDICATION TO INDUCE PERIODS.

IN THE MEAN TIME IF YOU DEVELOP SEVER ABDOMINAL PAIN OR VOMITING, THEN SEE YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY TO RULE OUT THE SIDE EFFECTS OF CLOMID USE.

TAKE CARE.
