naturernrnI want to ask, when my wife used the test for the first time, the result was negative, and after 5 days of lapse and being tested again, the result was positive, why huh?? Please explain, even though my wife’s period is late, so is it pregnant or not,rnPlease explainrnrnThanks in advance
Hello, sahril sidiq, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
A negative test pack result then becomes positive can be caused by several things, such as:
1. The pregnancy hormone (HCG) in urine has not increased too much when your wife used it for the first time, but the second time she used it the pregnancy hormone had increased so it was detected by the test pack. Pregnancy hormones will increase 2-fold every 2-3 days in the early weeks of pregnancy
2. Using the wrong test pack, to find out how to use the right test pack, you can read the link
3. The sensitivity of the test pack is not good. The sensitivity / accuracy of the test pack can be seen on the packaging
The cause of late menstruation can be due to pregnancy or other reasons such as physical fatigue, drastic weight changes, psychological stress, and certain conditions in the uterus and ovaries. However, to further confirm whether your wife is pregnant, try to see a doctor, the doctor will perform a physical examination of your wife and supporting examinations such as ultrasound. The following is a link regarding the early signs of pregnancy.
That's it, I hope it's useful.
