User :   Hi, my ex fiancĂ© went to the doc and she's had extreme fevers and chills and body ache... She went to the doc and they gave her tamiflu... Would the doc usually test for pregnancy is this situation if not asked? We had unprotected sex on 1/15 and 1/21 and on 1/22 she still hadn't had period but took a test that cane back negative... Too soon? I can't get more info cuz she is not speaking to me
Doctor :   hello
Doctor :   may i know her age please ?
User :   Hey waz up she is 22
Doctor :   when was her last period ?
Doctor :   and by how many days is her period delayed ?
User :   Idk that info
Doctor :   in order for me to tell you if the test was done to soon i would be needing this information as based on that we can see if the test was done too soon
User :   Like I said... She broke up with me 2 weeks ago and won't talk to me
Doctor :   or she might be just a delay as a period of upto 5 days is considered normal
Doctor :   well if the last unprotected intercourse was on 22 jan
Doctor :   and if NOW the test is negative
Doctor :   then she is not pregnant
User :   Ok what about the doc checking for pregnancy... She took test 1 week after unprotected sex, then we had sex again the next day.. About 3 weeks ago
Doctor :   the test comes positive after around day 8th if the fertilization has taken place
User :   We checked on 1/22 that was last time.... But had sex on 1/15 and 1/21... But she went to doc this past Tuesday for flu so I was wondering if the doc would catch it if not asked to test for it
Doctor :   the pregnancy test is ONLY done if the patient requests it. she must have mentioned about the delay in period in her medical history
Doctor :   the next question of the physician is are you pregnant ? as we dont want to give certain medications to pregnant women
Doctor :   that might be the reason for the test to be conducted
User :   So u think they would have caught it if she was?
Doctor :   yes for sure
User :   Ok what if she didn't put n e thing bt delayed period and said no to bein prego?
User :   And how long would it take for them to know? That same day?
Doctor :   that very MOMENT
User :   Ok... So what if other stuff isn't mentioned? Would they check?
Doctor :   only if she say so
Doctor :   no tests are done without the consent of the patient
User :   She was with her mom and obviously has the flu, and I don't think she woulda mentioned it... But chances are high for pregnancy with unprotected sex as we had no?
Doctor :   yes the chances are high with unprotected sex
