Hi! Jasmine,
The sensitivity and specificity of the pregnancy kits are quite high. But there are two ways of confirmation
First is by Ultrasonography of Uterus by transvaginal probe. Foetus can be visible.
Take two readings of beta-HCG levels over a period of two days. A significant increase suggests pregnancy.

Doctor said it was because of some kind hormone problem and gave her some med. after few day of taking med she had her period and also after a month . but after 2 month her period stopped again. we both are very sexually active and did home pregnancy urine test 2 time after about 40 day and 50 days but the result was negative. how accurate is urine pregnancy test ? we both are very tensed because we come from the culture where having sex before marriage is very big deal.

I am 34 yr old.1 week S/p right salpingectomy for 6wk ectopic, beta hcg 5000 presummably caused by copper iud failure. Bleeding stopped yesterday. I am now having odd tingling sensation on right side. Same sensation is faint on left side as well. My question is, is it possible to be close to ovulation 7 days after surgery? Is it normal to have more sensation with ovulation after salpingectomy or miscarriage? I understand mittelschmerz can be felt on right side more often even when left ovary ovulates. Also, is it necessary to do repeat beta hcg post salpingectomy for ectopic? Thank you for your help.

Hi, My wife had just gone through IVF process and had the Embryo Transfer on the 25th May 2014 (16 days ago) Proluton Depot 250mg was given on the transfer day itself, and every 3 days after that. The last injection given was on the 6th June. Also given was PREGNYL 5000IU on the day of the transfer and 3 days interval twice(6th June was the last Pregnyl Injection). Today, we made a BLOOD HCG and the result shows negative. What went wrong? Do Pregnyl or Proluton effect the reading of HCG in blood?
