Dr. Nomi :

Hi,


 

Dr. Nomi :

Urine dilution cannot effect pregnancy test.

Dr. Nomi :

The dipstick testing is highly sensitive in detecting B HCG which help in detecting pregnancy.


 

Dr. Nomi :

So if it was negative this means it is negative .

Dr. Nomi :

You did not like my answer.


 

Customer:

Sorry, just that My computer had issues, and I didn't get to explain the situation or discuss other issues.

Dr. Nomi :

We can discuss if u like


 

Customer:

my wife had two consecutive positive pregnancy tests


then some bleeding - 5 - 20mls

Customer:

then drank excessive water prior to an ultrasound in case of miscarriage.


then performed another urine test in the middle of the day, and it was negative. can hCG leave the body so quickly?

Dr. Nomi :

No,hCG cannot leave body that much quickly.It might be was not pregnancy then.

Dr. Nomi :

though she is now 3 weeks late for her menstrual period, with no signs of bleeding.

Customer:

just the small amount, and none for three days

Dr. Nomi :

What USG said


.

Dr. Nomi :

Has they spotted any fetus or sac in ultrasound.

Customer:

the ultrasound found a sac implanted in utero


 


and some swelling in an ovary also

Dr. Nomi :

It was complete sac or incomplete.


 

Customer:

a complete sac with follow up ultrasound friday as they say early to tell but it is a long wait

Dr. Nomi :

In the light of all this I believe more reliable is ultrasound report.

Dr. Nomi :

If it is complete sac then we can expect pregnancy is intact.


 

Dr. Nomi :

However,second ultrasound report will be more reliable.

Dr. Nomi :

Let us hope for the best.

Customer:

OK thank you for your time doctor :)

Dr. Nomi :

I wish you good luck.


 

Customer:

scary and worrying, but yes hopefully a little baby :) have a good night!
