Brief Answer:
Do beta-hCG test for confirmation of pregnancy. Follow rest.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Dear,

Thanks for writing to us.

I suggest you to undergo one blood test for beta-hCG to confirm pregnancy and it is more reliable than usual home pregnancy test.

On negative test, you have to undergo one pelvic ultrasound scan and complete hormone profile to rule out underlying pathology and pinpoint the diagnosis.

You may need to take progesterone pill like Norethisterone etc to induce period. Kindly, consult with your OBGYN for proper guidance and complete prescription.

You must take a healthy balanced diet with IRON supplements or foods. LOW carbohydrate diet is preferable. Avoid salty, fatty or fast food.

Do light to moderate exercise for physical fitness, weight control and avoid mental stress completely by regular meditation/ yoga. Maintain a healthy life style always.

Hope, it helps for your information. Wish your good health and take care.

Brief Answer:
Pregnancy period counted from D1 of last cycle.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,

Thanks for your follow up query.

1) If you become pregnant in current cycle, then your pregnancy period will be started or counted from D1 of last menstrual period.

2) If you want to do home pregnancy test, then first morning urine is best and it will give most accurate result due to high concentration of hCG.

Hope, it helps for your information. Good luck and take care.
