Doctor:Since it is not an emergency, you can wait and consult.
Doctor:It is best to start consultations when first time pregnancy is confirmed.
Doctor:That is not only to confirm the pregnancy, but also to check the position of the foetus, the general health condition of the mother etc.
Doctor:So, you can do one thing.
Doctor:Get a consultation done within one week or so. confirm the pregnancy, should we get another test done from a test lab ?
