Hi there. Board-certified obgyn here. "Out of Range - Positive" as a result for urine HCG indicates a positive pregnancy test. What other Qs do you have for me?

Does that confirms that my wife is pregnant ? or do you recommend taking any other tests ? How would we determine weeks/months ?
Doctor: Dr. J, Board Certified MD replied 5 months ago

Yes, this is a positive pregnancy test. Congratulations! If she has regular, predictable periods, the first day of her last menstrual period can help us determine how far along she is. If she does not have regular periods or doesn't remember the first day of her last period, an ultrasound will help determine how far along she is.

9th October was the first day of her last period. How many weeks the baby would be ? and When do you recommend next consultation pr check up with doctor ?
Doctor: Dr. J, Board Certified MD replied 5 months ago

If Oct 9 was the first day of her last period, she'd be 5 weeks and 2 days along today, and her due date is July 16. Call the obgyn now so you can get an appointment in the next couple weeks. No rush.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
