Menstruation Is Not Late And Positive Testpack Results?
Good morning. Sorry, I want to ask, this morning is a fun pack, and the results are positive, then I went to the health center to check, the doctor said “it’s not too late, already tested, it should have not been positive yet”. The doctor is counting. Because the date of menses is uncertain. How do you respond to that?
Hello, Mrs. Fitri Asshofa. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com.
Test pack is one method of antenatal care that works by detecting the presence of the hormone B-hCG (beta human chorionic gonadotropin) in the urine. The B-hCG hormone is a hormone released by the embryo when the fertilization results are attached to the uterine wall, generally occurring on the 6-8 days after fertilization. Examination with a test pack is recommended 1 week after menstruation is late from the schedule.
Positive test pack results can be found in conditions that are not pregnant because the specificity of this tool is not 100% so that false positive results can occur. A false positive test pack result can be caused by the following possibilities:
Readings that take longer than they should (generally test results are read within 5 minutes) Chemical pregnancy (fertilization does work, but miscarriages early) Ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy where the embryo attaches outside the uterus, for example in the ovaries and canals uterus) Miscarriage (hCG hormone can still be detected if a miscarriage has not occurred for a long time) Effects of drugs (for example: being in a pregnancy planning program and getting an injection containing the hCG hormone) Test kits are out of date We advise you to consult with an obstetrician. The doctor may perform an ultrasound examination to determine whether there is a pregnancy.
