hello
welcome to haelthcare magic.
you should wait for another 5 to 7 days atleast then get a blood test for pregnancy(serum beta hcg). also get a serum progesterone level done. if the progesterone is below a certain level you will need some supplementation of progesterone to support the pregnancy(provided you are pregnant)

Hi I m having problems with my scalp. It s been very flaky sore and the more I itch the more I loose hair. I ve been taking the POP progesterone only pill lately and I don t know if that it a cause of it. Also I wear weaves but have done nothing different to my normal routine! I haven t changed shampoos or hair oils. Also I went to the doctors and he gave me a shampoo beginning with D what was prescribed but it has made no difference. I have a busy lifestyle but still try to balance my eating and exercising. Any suggestions? J

To who it may concern, I appreciate your help a lot. I could not find the answer online, and I currently don t have a personal physician to ask. I am eighteen years old, and I plan to go back on my combined birth control oral contraceptive called ,Tri-Sprintec. I have a question that worries me a lot. If this birth control pills are triphasic, have three different phases, each week has a different amount of progesterone hormone, so if I throw up in one hour after taking a pill and it is most likely missed and take next one from the same phase, will it reduce the effectiveness of my birth controls because of taking,in this case, six instead of seven pills of that phase according to the whole cycle ?

I saw my physician on Thursday of last week. From Monday, my beta had only gone from 385 to 556, and my progesterone went down from 10.1 to 8.8. I have been having severe cramps but no bleeding. According to my calculations/ovulation I should be no less than 5 weeks 5 days right now, but the transvaginal u/s they did on Thursday put me at 4 weeks 3 days...we re 5-7 days off. He made me cancel a road trip, because he didn t want me on the road when things went south . Does anyone have any experience with this? I miscarried with a blighted ovum around 9 months ago, and am concerned it s happening again.
