User :   Only one thing i am feeling more tired.. other than that i hav no other symptoms
Doctor :   ok
User :   during the earler pregnancy i had mst of the symptms u suggested
Doctor :   then I would suggest you to go ahead witha blood HCG levels test
User :   is there any blood test
User :   okay...
Doctor :   as urine pregnancy tests sometimes can show false negative results
Doctor :   due to less concentration of HCG hormone in urine during early pregnancy
User :   oh k... it was very disgusting for me as of now ... whether to keep hop or not
Doctor :   this should be followed up with a pelvic scan/ultrasound
Doctor :   to see if the baby is fine inside with a visible heart beat, preferably with a transvaginal ultrasound
Doctor :   that can pick up early beats
User :   ohk..
User :   if i am going to lab they will permit me to do this? i mean the docter i am consulting now asked me to wait since it was -ve and asked me to come on 3rd day if i am getting my cycle
Doctor :   may i ask what was the reason for your earlier abortion?
User :   it was a missed one
User :   i dunno anything
User :   till 8th week baby was fine inside
Doctor :   ok. then in all probabilities it was due to lack of progesterone hormone
Doctor :   so request your doctor for a blood HCG test
User :   i was taking progestrone tablets also
Doctor :   and if the test and scan come positive for pregnancy
Doctor :   then you should be started on progesterone supplements
Doctor :   and avoid intercourse until 12 weeks are over
User :   12th week scan gav me result as baby was not alive only 8 week growth
User :   we didnt do anything we were taking rest and all... it is GOD's decision...
Doctor :   may be yes, it was GOD's decision
Doctor :   but now you need to be careful
Doctor :   go ahead with a repeat examination with your gynecologist
User :   ohk..
Doctor :   or another gynecologist and request for the above said investigations
