User :   Hi
Doctor :   hello
User :   Hello doctor .
Doctor :   how can i help you ?
User :   This is regarding my pregnancy questions
User :   My wife had her period last on Feb2nd.
Doctor :   ok
User :   She faces irregular period also for few months,
User :   And today she had home pregnancy Hcg test and it shows positive
Doctor :   alright
User :   She even went to doctor and they asked her to urine test which also says positive.
Doctor :   ok
User :   As it is hardly 36 days , doctor says it is confirmed but she has to take scan after 45 days to confirm fully
Doctor :   thats correct
User :   Will there be a chance getting a different result after 45 days scan?
Doctor :   well i will tell you why was it done
User :   And how far urine test is reliable and trusted?
Doctor :   well if both the home and lab tests are positive . they are hormonal tests
Doctor :   later after 45 days we will see growth in the uterus
Doctor :   thats why its done to confirm
User :   Ok. Shall we rely on the urine test?
Doctor :   yes he lab tests are accurate
User :   Am asking because we were planning for a kid more than 1 and half years
User :   and we were very much excited about this
Doctor :   well thats good news but we do want that that once the ultrasound report is there
Doctor :   so we are sure everything is fine
User :   Also doctor prescribed Folwice and Susten 200... we dint ask what it is for.. So can you tell us the purpose these medicines
Doctor :   susten is a tablet containing progesterone. many doctors administer it empirically in doses of 200-300mg twice a day without a documentary evidence of a deficiency of progesterone. well, no one wants to take chances. progesterone deficit does cause threatened abortion or actual abortion
Doctor :   its a precautionary measure
Doctor :   dont worry
User :   Thanks doctor..
Doctor :   i wish you all the best
User :   What are the general diet she should follow.
Doctor :   take care
Doctor :   well there are no specific diet restrictions
