if you test positive and don't want it means it will be an abortion which can be done medically or surgically. the first step is to do urine preg test with first morning sample. if positive to do a Transvaginal scan at 35 days from day one of last periods. you may then take abortion pills typically given over 48 hours and a repeat ultrasound after 2 weeks. I can t give you the names as a written consent on form c is a must as per govt regulations . the other method is surgical wherein ultrasound guided clearance is done under anaesthesia. best wishes

normally there shouldn't be any impact on conception. pills are best taken between 5-7 weeks preg

hi doc .. i did the preg test on the 5th day after i missed my cycle. The test shows negative. happy that its negative , but have a doubt if its to early to test. Last month i had taken pills to postpone my periods by a week, do you think that has affected my cycle date?

normally urine pregnancy test is positive after missed periods. to be on the safer side pl repeat the urine test after one week . normally it's recommended to do urine preg test weekly till next periods. blood preg test is more accurate than urine preg test

Hi, I am currently trying for a baby. I have only been off the pill since the beginning of May, after I had just finished a period. A few days later, I bled again. I have had unprotected sex a couple of times and I now feel bloated, constipated, my nipples are becoming more and more sore. I am also weeing a little more than I used to. I know it s quite early. I have done a few pregnancy tests and they have both been negative. Ovulation tests have also been negative, so I don t quite know what the think. Could the body changes be due to coming off the pill? I didn t have these symptoms last time I cam off the pill though. Thanks, Kelly.
