Menstruation hasn’t come this month, what should I do?

Even if the most effective contraceptive measures are taken, there will always be people who will be caught carelessly.

However, the reason for the [successful recruitment] is often [artificial].

On the one hand, it is very difficult to insist on taking short-acting contraceptives every day. If you don’t follow the doctor’s advice, 9 out of every 100 women who use short-acting contraceptives will have unwanted pregnancies.

On the other hand, improper use of condoms may lead to rupture and breakage. Eighteen out of every 100 women are pregnant due to improper use of condoms.

Is it possible that I am pregnant?

Contraceptive pills, condoms and other types of contraceptive tools do not have a complete protective effect.

In other words, no matter how careful you are, there is always a slight possibility that you will be pregnant.

Therefore, even if contraceptive measures are taken, if any of the following manifestations occur, go to the pharmacy to buy a test paper or pregnancy test stick and have a pregnancy test.

1. Menopause

The first and most reliable sign of pregnancy is menopause.

If you don’t have the habit of carefully recording your menstrual cycle, it may be difficult to find out whether your menstruation has been delayed. Most women’s menstrual cycle is 28 days.

So if [big aunt] hasn’t come for more than a month, it’s time to have a pregnancy test.

One thing to keep in mind is that due to stress, diet, or taking drugs, the big aunt may also delay or not come.

After suspected pregnancy, pay attention to the vaginal secretions. Early pregnancy, slight vaginal bleeding is quite common, because fertilized eggs need to bury themselves into the endometrium during implantation.

What should be done at this time is to write down the color, character or blood volume of secretions. Don’t simply think [menstruation is coming] and don’t test pregnancy.

If the pregnancy test result is positive and accompanied by vaginal bleeding, call the doctor to ask.

2. Abdominal pain

When the fertilized egg is implanted, it will produce a feeling similar to dysmenorrhea. In the early pregnancy, many pregnant mothers will have this discomfort, mistakenly thinking that [menstruation is coming], but the big aunt is far away.

Sounds like something happened to you? Then have a pregnancy test.

Hormone levels in the human body usually vary from person to person and are also related to pregnancy.

If a test shows positive results, you can do it again every two or three days. If you are really pregnant, hCG will double every 48 to 72 hours.

Accordingly, you will find that the color of the test line of the pregnancy test stick will deepen every two or three days.

3. Milk Pain

More and more estrogen and progesterone will be produced during pregnancy. In order to make the pregnant mother’s body more suitable for the new baby to live in, these hormones will transform the body.

Due to the action of hormones, the pregnant mother’s breast may become soft and larger, the nipple may ache, and the venous vessels around the areola will become obvious.

However, since many women also have breast discomfort before menstruation, this symptom does not always indicate [pregnancy].

Step 4 Feel unwell

In addition to abdominal pain and breast soreness, the following manifestations will also occur in early pregnancy:

    Nausea, anorexia, fatigue, frequent urination,

As pregnancy continues, these symptoms may become more and more serious, and hCG levels will not stabilize until the full three months of pregnancy.

Pay attention to your physical feelings. Any physical abnormality may be a reminder of [giving me a pregnancy test].

How to use the pregnancy test stick?

Although if you want to get pregnant, you need a group of sperm brothers to expand the territory outside your egg sister, but in the end, after all, you only need one sperm and the egg can be fertilized.

To know if we are pregnant, we just need to buy a pregnancy test stick to test it.

According to the current data, the accuracy rate of pregnancy test after menopause can reach about 99%.

We can finish it quietly at home without going to the hospital first: open the pregnancy test stick, let the end soak urine when urinating, wait for a moment according to the suggested time in the product description, and then we can check the results.

Early pregnancy test can make you better take care of yourself and the fetus. However, since the fertilized egg is successfully implanted in the uterus, hCG can only be detected in urine after 7 to 10 days of settling down, so, in order to obtain more accurate results, it is best to test pregnancy after menopause.

In addition, the concentration of HCG in urine can be increased by taking urine in the morning or holding urine for several hours, which is conducive to obtaining effective results.

If your pregnancy test result is positive and you decide to give birth to this baby, then contact the community doctor to build a card as soon as possible and make an appointment for the first prenatal test.

What do you think of the pregnancy test results?

It is very important to know the meaning of positive results and negative results by testing pregnancy at home.

If the result of pregnancy test is [positive], it is pregnancy, no matter how weak the lines, colors, or signs are, this is a certainty. We have to consider going to the community hospital and asking the doctor for further examination.

If the test is done too early, the result may be [false negative] (not no pregnancy).

If there are any of the following circumstances, you may still win the bid:

  1. The pregnancy test stick or test paper has expired.

  2. Test Method Error

  3. Measure too fast

  4. Drinking too much water before the test diluted the urine.

  5. You are taking certain drugs, such as diuretics and antihistamines.

The result of [false positive] is very rare. At this time, the test results show that you are pregnant, but in fact you are not pregnant.

If there is a blood substance or protein in the urine, it may produce [false positive] results. For example, certain drugs, such as sedatives, antispasmodic drugs, or sleeping pills, may cause [false positive] results.

If your result is negative, you are probably not pregnant. However, it is also possible that it has not been tested for the time being and can be reviewed within a week.

In order to ensure accuracy, some household pregnancy test products will suggest that no matter what the initial results are, they should be reviewed.

What if the results of the two pregnancy tests are different?

Looking for a doctor, we need more professional and accurate methods to confirm the results.

How does the doctor test pregnancy?

There are mainly two ways to test pregnancy: one is urine sample test and the other is blood sample test.

We have already said the general method of urine sample test, which is to judge whether there is pregnancy or not by detecting HCG content in urine, and can be done at home.

Blood tests need to be completed in hospitals, and urine tests are not commonly used.

About 6 ~ 8 days after ovulation, you can know whether you are pregnant or not by checking blood. However, it is slower to produce results in this way than to test urine at home.

More specifically, blood tests generally take two forms.

1. HCG Qualitative Check

Is to check the hormone [presence].

Under daily circumstances, the content of HCG in blood is very small and almost negligible, so its [presence] can be used to judge whether pregnant or not.

Doctors often do blood hCG tests as early as the 10th day after menopause. Even, some technologies have the ability to carry out tests earlier.

2. Quantitative hCG (-hCG) t

The content of hCG in blood can be measured.

This test can detect extremely low blood hCG content and determine its blood concentration.

Therefore, this kind of test is helpful to diagnose potential problems during pregnancy, such as screening ectopic pregnancy, hydatidiform mole, or monitoring the decline and speed of hCG after abortion.

Oh, by the way, the most accurate criterion for judging whether you are pregnant or not is [whether you have seen the gestational sac on B-ultrasound].

How accurate is the pregnancy test?

As we said, pregnancy tests at least one week after menopause are the most accurate results. Pregnancy tests in the morning when urine concentration is high will be more accurate.

Generally speaking, the accuracy rate of urine measurement at home can reach 99%. The accuracy of blood test is higher.

The accuracy of urine measurement at home depends on:

  1. Do you strictly follow the instructions for use

  2. When does menstruation ovulate, implantation time

  3. Pregnancy test time

  4. Sensitivity of Pregnancy Test Products

If the home test is [negative], but the body has obvious changes, or go to the hospital for further examination.

I wish you a good pregnancy!
