pregnancy test
« on: February 24, 2006, 04:50:13 PM »
hi, i just had a pregnancy test today (grabe sobrang worried ko po kasi talaga)... i had it done thru a lab... so un po, syempre NEGATIVE! they got a urine sample from me... kaso ang question ko is this, i didn't really miss a period yet, i mean it's only been 3 weeks since ung 'act' na pinaka potential na mag bring about nung baby (and it wasnt even ung intercourse talaga [see my other posts])...so ibig sabihin, if negative ako ngayon, talagang negative na un dba? i mean all i have to do is wait for my next period? iniisip ko kasi na baka nacoconceive ung baby later than 3 weeks pa after the 'deed' e, so ibig sabihin the test may be negative now and positive later? sorry po kung mejo stupid ung question ha...pero i really realy need help on this - mejo na paparanoid na kasi talaga ko...imagine, ang mahal na pala ng pregnancy test ngayon sa isang lab - 500 pesos! waaaah! dapat accurate na un!!!! hehe :D thanks - sana po talaga matulujngan niyo ko on this one. thanks.

You're right. It could have been three weeks pero kung negative naman siya, I guess you don't have to worry. Just wait for your period kasi baka delayed ka lang talaga this time. 5 minutes is all it takes for the sperm to travel into the fallopian tubes and within 5 days after the sexual contact is the duration for the egg and sperm cell to be embeded into your uterus. It coud be that iniisip mo na you could be pregnant and it made you to be stressed out. Stress kasi is a factor why ladies often have missed or skipped periods. Like in my cae, although I was not having sexual contact but when I get stressed I'd be delayed for a week. Usually naman kasi if you're pregnant, you'll know it if you'll have a pregnancy test after having a missed period; it is usually pag 2 weeks ka nang delayed, then you may have a pregnancy test and it can turn out to be positive. Obserbahan mo rin.

thanks thanks for the reply... ;D super naapreciate ko po talaga... pero follow up lang po? so there is stil a chance that i may be pregnant even if the 3week test came out to be negatie?! ??? kasi the baby gets conceived two weeks pa after missing a period?! huhu... so hindi accurate ung 3 weeks lang before missing a period? as of now po ba, how accurate are pregnancy tests? can you recomend the most accurate pregnancy test kahit over the counter or a laboratory procedure? hmmm... kakakaba lang kasi... i didn't have intercourse though, i just read kasi na pre-cum could still contain sperm and that's what i think happened to me and my partner (i think he touched me with his hand na may sperm)... and i was still having my period back then - pero eto, super worried... OA po ba? :( sorry...again, super thanks for the reply!

Taking a pregnancy test should be done kahit isang araw pa lang na delayed ang period (especially if you know that you had intercourse on that particular rmonth nadelayed ka.) Sometimes, you neednot hurry to the diagnostic clinic for a routinetest kasi nga its expensive. Minsan, okey din that you use the over the counter pregnancy test kit obtainablefrom the drug store; halos pareho lang ang accuracy non. But better yet, if you really want to be sure, you may consult an OB Gyne for your peace of mind na rin.

Unfortunately my dear Im really not familiar kung anong test kit ang mas accurate na gamitin. But if you are shy to ask about it in the usual drugstores, try to check out any Watson's Personal Care store. The pharmacists there are accoodating and don't mind asking questions. Sometimes it helps.

dapat ang gagamiting PT is johnsons o any na mamahalin kc mas mataas ung pwede nilang madetet na HCG..and kapag magpapatest ka dapat atleast 7 days after youre xpected day of having mens
No matter how much we learn, there is always more knowledge to be gained. In this connection I am reminded of a short poem that has been in my mind over the years. It reads as follow: I used to think I knew I knew. But now I must confess. The more I know I know I know I know I know the less.

actually, if u took your last pill last June 16, dapat u start taking the next pill on June 24, whether or not tapos na ang period mo. :)

buti nmn nagkaron ka na sis.. at hindi ka na nppraning.. ;D hehe.. bsta wag k lng papalya sa inom very effective un.. kasi ako 1yr na nagpipills at hindi p nmn ako nbubuntis.. the fact na lahat un sa loob ha.. hehehe... never na sya nagwithdraw... ;D
guys, i've the same problem with loveyadaddy...same thing..hindi ko rin na take yung pills on the first day of my period. here's how it happened:
i've been taking pills since i gave birth to my son..siguro mga 5 years din yun. so alam ko naman talaga kung pano sya gamitin..its just that after almost a year, i was forced to take them again coz i had an unprotected sex..since it was so unexpected, kunwari, friday night nangyari (i got my last period on June 29, which means im super fertile at that time), saturday pm, bumili agad ako ng isang pack and i took one pill..sunday again i took one..since ive read it somewhere sa cosmo before that you could substitute birth control pills with a morning after pill, and that you should take more than one pill at the same time para mas strong ang effect..so, monday morning, i took 2 pills until after i finished the whole pack, which i consumed for only 11 days..now, i know, that when you've taken all the pills, expect my period within 2-4 days diba? im on my 2nd day of waiting now, and wla pa..im getting crazy thinking that i may be pregnant..please help me.. i know may mali ako sa pag take ng pills.. will it still be effective even if i didnt follow the 21-day routine? do you think i may be pregnant? i mean, you guys say that the sperm states in the uterus for 5 days diba? has taking the pill blocked its way to the fallopian tube or something? help!!!

ahhmm yeah,.. based on my experience... i bought this pregnancy test while i was in canada.. my girl friend told me to buy the expensive one para sure daw.. so, when i used it coz i didnt have my peroid for 2 or 3 weeks.. so ok, when i used it with my friend early in the morning before i took a pee... and it said negative.... so, my friend hugged me coz i was safe... and i was happy too.. but after one week, i felt nausea and dizzy all the time and one morning i threw up.. and i thought it was from my ulcer or just hyper coz i didnt eat much... and my friend noticed me that i looked pale.. she got me my urine sample and brought it to the doctor for pregnancy test and it was positive!!!! oh god i was sooo down!!!! and my friend and i went to the obgyne just to know how far i was... so i had an ultrasound and the obyne said that i was 10 weeks pregnant..... whew!!!
wuzzup baybee!

Nako, I tried that pregnancy test lang late last year when I missed my period for 7 days, negative. I tried after 11 days na kong walang period, negative pa rin. Pero after 13 days, sobra na ha, so I went to M-Tech to have the pregnancy test there na lang -- positive! Maybe because I didn't follow instructions since I did not take the test na dapat your first urine in the morning. But after that experience, I won't be too trusting of those home pregnancy kits anymore.

hi, im just a newbie here... anyways... i had my deed last december 5 and i was on diane-35 and my partner did withdrawal just to make sure. I missed my period for 2 weeks now and i had already taken 2 pregnancy tests and both showed positive but im still delayed. I had some bleeding for 2 days now. I don't know if it's my period or what but the blood was just a small amount. Im under a lot pressure since the past month... could this be the reason of my delayed menstrual cycle? or am i pregnant? please answer... im paranoid na

Let me just guess this right?  You tested 2X already and both are positive??? tama ba? If that is the case then you are pregnant.  It is very rare to get a false negative kasi lalo na twice.  The bleeding that you experienced is what you call implantation bleeding...  Lalo na kung mahina talaga compared sa regular period mo.. pacheck ka sa ob to be sure..
