Brief Answer:
see below answer

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic .

Once ovulation (rupture of follicle)happens it takes 14 to 15 days for appearing of hcg in blood. After 4 to 5 days to this hcg may be detected in urine.

So to conclude blood hcg may be positive after 14 to 15 days of ovulation and urine pregnancy test may be positive after 18 to 19 days of ovulation. As early as 14days of ovulation pregnancy may be detected.

Sometimes there may be little delay. I usually advice for my patients to get blood test at 28th day after ovulation if she had not got periods yet . If then also test comes negative then it is considered no pregnancy.

And yes, susten do delays periods but only by 2 to 3 days. I would suggest you to get tested after 10days (which will be 28th day after ovulation in you ) and consult your doctor with report. Continue susten as prescribed.

Its not totally negative and everything is not over yet. You have 10 more days .

Hope I have answered your query .If any further queries are there I would love to help.

Brief Answer:
unlikely

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It is unlikely that you had early miscarriage. Delay in periods may be most likely due to use of susten drug. As susten is known to cause delay in periods. Susten is used to avoid early miscarriage if you are pregnant . so it is very unlikely that after being on susten you have miscarriage.

If it was so then pregnancy test would have come positive and also your periods would be different from your previous periods in amount and duration.

I would suggest you to consult your gynacologist to plan treatment for this cycle.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help .

Brief Answer:
better to get blood test

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The possible reasons of positive hpt could be
-hpt doesn't give 100% accurate results. Accuracy is 90-95%
-kit may be defective
-pregnancy may be there but it may be confirmed by blood b-hcg test which is 100% accurate

if you have got periods like you had previously means one possibility could be you may be having missed abortion. If only spotting is there then pregnancy may be still there. This needs clinical examination. So consult your gynacologist has soon as possible.

Though you had 2 follicle usually if one gets fertilised periods won't come.

Hope I have been helpful .

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
