Patient discussion about ST
Q. hi all, this is my 1 st pregnancy hi all, this is my 1 st pregnancy, and I went for my confirmation and they checked with a pee test and an internal exam…..I guess this is not enough. No blood work? Nothing was told about HCG levels, when you all get them? When will they take ultrasound?
Actually, urine test is enough for confirming a pregnancy. and it also detects the HCG level in your urine.
Urine tests or home pregnancy tests are around 97% accurate when done correctly.
Most doctors recommend that you wait until the first day of your missed period before taking a urine pregnancy test. This is usually about two weeks after conception. However, some tests are more sensitive than others and can be taken earlier.
There is also a check for HCG level by drawing your blood, but beside it is more invasive (though it is very accurate), but it is more expensive and not as practice as urine pregnancy test.
Stay healthy always in your pregnancy..
