How soon does pregnancy show in a urine test?

May 25th, 2013

So I took my first pregnancy test last week and it came up negative, then took two more yesterday and they came up positive. Iv been using the First Response Pregnancy tests that are supposed to be 99% effective, but if I am pregnant Im only roughly 2 weeks along. Im supposed to be leaving tomorrow to finish my military training and their going to make us do a urine test for pregnancy and drugs, If im only roughly 2 weeks along will the urine test still show that Im pregnant? Or do you have to be a few weeks more along for pregnancy to show up on the urine test?

What am I missing as far as answers to Women’s Health FAQs?

May 15th, 2013

I’m not a pregnancy test and therefore have no way of knowing if you are pregnant or not.

Follow the instructions included in the tampon box.

If you don’t know the answer to this question, you probably should not have sex.

Yes, you will probably want protection.

It’s called your period.

What can I expect to happen if I have smoked marijuana while pregnant?

May 15th, 2013

I live in Colorado and I am 30 weeks pregnant and have smoked marijuana 1-2 times daily throughout my pregnancy thus far. I have done so in order to help keep extreme nausea under control. I do not have my medical card, though the state of Colorado allows for recreational use of marijuana. I was wondering what sort of legal repercussions I may be subjected to upon delivery. I am not interested in moral opinions on the matter, nor false information about birth defects.
My questions is whether or not CPS will be getting involved. I have no information on how the drug testing procedures work here, nor the laws surrounding marijuana and pregnancy. I am assuming it is potentially different than many other states due to the difference in marijuana use laws.
I have done more extensive research than the 3 of you that have answered. The only proven repercussion from marijuana use alone while pregnant is a 0.5% increase in the likelihood of a low birth weight. All other defects that have been blamed on marijuana have also been linked to additional factors such as drug use or pregnancy complications. I have a very serious condition as well, causing me to vomit nonstop daily if I do not find a way to help subside it. In order to not continuously lose weight and be able to spend time outside of bed, I have found that taking a hit of marijuana once or twice a day is the only thing that helps. I am not smoking to get high, or even enough to get high. Merely a minimal amount in order to be able to eat.
I’m not asking for opinions on whether or not you believe I should do so or what people think will happen to my child concerning development, that is what I have plenty of reliable information on already. I have been prescribed 3 different nausea medications that only lead to more complications and did not help with nausea. i have gained a total of 10lbs in 30 weeks, though my baby is growing very healthily and not at risk for low birth weight according to my doctors. I am ONLY asking for reliable information about legalities in this specific state.

Can I take pregnancy test a week after the missed period?

May 15th, 2013

I was supposed to have my period last February 18, but until now I haven’t got it. I would take the Clear Blue pregnancy test, the packet states that it must be used days before the missed period or the actual period date.
So my question is, is it ok to use this pregnancy test a week after the missed period?

Any additional information are gladly appreciated. Thank you. :)

Anyone take a LONG time to get a positive pregnancy test?

May 15th, 2013

Give me some hope here, since we have been TTC for 18 months. With my daughter, I had NO symptoms, and got a positive on day 28. Since she was born, my cycles aren’t regular. Instead of day 28 on the dot, my period starts between day 28-31. Today is day 30, and negative test. Last week exactly, I had a large pink spot on the toilet paper, which I thought may be implantation bleeding, so it would be 7 days past that. I don’t know when I ovulated, but I found the fertile mucus on April 25th, so that was around the right time. Today is day 17 since then. But again, I don’t know when I ovulated exactly, just when I found the mucus. So I am a tentative 17 days past ovulation. Possibly only 15 or 16 dpo. Anyone take a long time to get a positive? The only think different about this cycle is the pink bleeding I experienced last week

What happens when someone miscarries at 6 months?

May 15th, 2013

Yep, if you hadn’t already realized, this question has to do with Lily Allen and her 2nd miscarriage (such sad news, wow!)

A friend told me that when someone miscarries when they’re so far along their pregnancy, they have to actually deliver the child like they would have if they had carried the baby to term..is this true? I can’t even imagine what that’s like..
Oh, sorry. Didn’t realize that someone had asked this already. I’ll look for that question then! Sorry again.

when are you likely know that your pregnant?

May 15th, 2013

I had sex on the 10th of feb. and my last period was the 19 of Jan. Could I likely become pregnant the time I had sex that night? I mean I checked out the pregnancy calculator and calendarsof my ovulation dates, , I go to different ones and they all tell me different. I am so confused here. When did I really ovulate?
