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.

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?
