Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can I help you?
User :   hello doctor
User :   I need your help on interpreting my home pregnancy test result
Doctor :  
User :   I just took the test few minutes back; the kit was Velocit from Dr Reddy
User :   based on instruction given on the kit, it seems positive means two purple colored bands in the C and T regions
User :   and negative means only one colored band at the C region
User :   In my case, the thick purple band appeared immediately at the C region and about 30 seconds later, a light purple band appeared at the T region
User :   So, basically, I got a light purple band at T and dark purple band at C
User :   How should I interpret this result?
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
Look light purple band shows there is some HCG signs in the urine which is present during early days of pregnancy
User :   OK
User :   i got a HCG injection on Nov 2nd. I hope that will not affect the result?
Doctor :   The best thing is that you can repeat the test after four more days (preferably a week )
Doctor :  
I want to know if you have other symptoms of pregnancy
Doctor :  
liek sore breasts, morning sickness, bloating
Doctor :  
User :   no none of these symptoms; only my period is delayed by about a week
Doctor :  
Doctor :   let me tell you about it
Doctor :  
Points to Note : Doctor :   Early morning sample of urine is preferred.
Doctor :   A fresh sample is preferable
Doctor :   Urine is collected in a clean, dry container
Doctor :  
Wash hands with hot water
Doctor :  
before collecting sample
User :   ok
Doctor :  
i guess these are mentioned on the kit
User :   thanks doctor. Can you confirm if the HCG shot I got on Nov 2nd can affect this result?
Doctor :  
User :   So.... when is it safe to repeat the test?
Doctor :   Pregnancy tests are usually stored in the refrigerator. So, make sure you bring the test kit to room temperature before you use it.

Doctor :   Repeat it after a week
Doctor :  
if you do not get a period
Doctor :  
You can infact repeat after 4 days
User :   ok... thank you doctor.
Doctor :   line formed in region 'T' is faint, this could be due to low levels of hCG hormone.
Doctor :   So I know your anxiety
Doctor :  
but just wait for 4 days and repeat it
Doctor :  
early in the morning
Doctor :  
with the instructions I gave you
User :   ok... sure
Doctor :  
Is there anything else I can help you with?
User :   thats all doctor. thank you for your help
Doctor :  
Please fill the feedback form say done when done.
User :   done
Doctor :
