hi
welcome to health care magic
as far as primary urine pregnancy test is concern, you can do it after 6 eeks of last menstrual period
if it comes positive, get the sonography done after 8 weeks to confirm cardiac activity and pole development, then you can say the confirmation of pregnancy

best wishes

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
When was your LMP? The ideal time to test for Pregnancy is to check it one week after you miss your Expected Period date. You should be using a Early morning Urine sample, I mean first Urine sample of the day for testing of Pregnancy status. If it is Positive, you should be seeing a Gynecologist and get a Ultrasound scan done to confirm it. If it turns out negative and you have not yet got your Periods, you can repeat the test after another week.

All the Very Best, Take Care.

Hello- I have tried the hcg diet last year with great success- I only gained back 4 lbs over a year, but only did one round. I went to a diet doctor and he prescribed me phendimetrazine. I have taken it for 7 weeks with 14 lbs lost. I feel like I lost weight so quickly on hcg, had very few side effects and was wondering if I could use the Hcg with the low calorie diet and add just one phendametrizine for hunger control? I am 45 years old, female in very good health. I am also post gastric bypass patient (3 years out). I started at 320lbs and am now at 157. I am 5'4" tall- my diet dr says I need to weigh 115! That sounds extreme to me--but in any event I would still like to lose 25 more lbs. Can the two be taken safely together? It is sublingual-not injections
