User:how soon does pregnancy happen after intercourse
Doctor:Let me explain to you.
User:i want to ensure sustainance and not lead again into miscarriage if it is there
User:by last menstrual date was 6th
Doctor:Medically we describe pregnancy when ova is fertilized by egg to form a zygote (fetus) and this fetus gets implanted. Implanted fetus is the first stage of pregnancy. Implantation can occur withing 4-5 days after intercourse.
Doctor:If your last menstrual date was on 6th february and you were trying for pregnancy, then there are chances of you being pregnant now.
User:and 17th was the day it happened
User:which is 11th day
Doctor:And don't worry, it is common to have mild lower abdominal cramps during the initial weeks of pregnancy.
Doctor:If your periods are regular, 11th very well falls in the most fertile days. If you have other symptoms of pregnancy, we can suspect pregnancy. However you need to wait till you miss your period to confirm pregnancy.
Doctor:I would advice you to start Tab. Folvite 5mg once a day if you haven't started it yet.
Doctor:And get an urine pregnancy test done after 2-3 days (if you miss your periods).
Doctor:Have you followed?
User:i did preganews test last week, negative
User:am following u
Doctor:As your expected date is still due, it is too early to test for pregnancy using home pregnancy kit.
User:my worry is that last time also till doctors cud confirm i lost it
Doctor:You need to wait atleast till your expected date of period to confirm whether or not you have a pregnancy.
User:may be because of the 6cm fibroid
User:dont know
User:can i do soemthing to avoid any mishap again
Doctor:I understand your apprehension; but at this point of time I would only suggest you to take Tab.Folvite 5mg once a day.
Doctor:If you wish to confirm pregnancy sooner, then you can opt for either blood hCG level testing or transvaginal ultrasonography.
Doctor:Both these test are more sensitive than pregnews in detecting pregnancy.
Doctor:Have you followed?
Doctor:Do you have any other query?
User:do i continue travelling to office
User:or climbing stairs
Doctor:Preferable to avoid long distance travel till we have a proof of pregancy.
Doctor:Once the pregnancy is done, you will need an full fledged abdominal ultrasound scan.
Doctor:The results of the abdominal ultrasound is important in deciding whether or not you need to travel to the office and climb stairs.
Doctor:For now, avoid travelling in a bumpy road.
