Test Pack Results Are Negative After Bleeding During Pregnancy?
Hello I’m Mia. My HP is September 10th. After being late for 1 week I tried to test positive results and on October 29 I went to the doctor to confirm my pregnancy and my doctor said I was pregnant. On October 31, my initial bleeding was just spotting and suddenly blood came out like I was on November 1, I went to the doctor in the ultrasound and it still didn’t appear, and the doctor told me to, and the results were still positive in the treatment of a gynecologist. Which is reduced and which is inserted into the vagina. I was bleeding for almost a week and now I stopped trying again but the test results were negative. Am I still pregnant ?? Is my fetus still there ??
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Test pack is one method of antenatal care by working in the form of detection of the hormone B-hCG (beta human chorionic gonadotropin) in the urine of a mother. B-hCG is a hormone released by the embryo when fertilization results are attached to the uterine wall, which usually occurs on days 6-8 after fertilization of the egg by sperm cells. Examination with a test pack is recommended 1 week after menstruation is late from the schedule.
Positive test pack results can occur in a nonpregnant state because the specificity of this tool is not 100% so there is a possibility of false positive results. Inspection results that tend to change also indicate the possibility that the results obtained could not reflect the actual situation.
A false positive test pack result can occur due to the following possibilities:
Reading the results is too long than it should be (generally the test pack results are read in 5 minutes)
Chemical pregnancy (ie fertilization does work, but early miscarriages occur)
Ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy that results from fertilization actually sticks outside the uterus, for example: in the connecting channel of the ovaries and uterus)
Miscarriage (the hormone hCG can still be detected if a miscarriage has not been long)
Drug effects (example: being in a pregnancy planning program and getting an injection with the hormone hCG)
The test pack has expired
So that your condition can be accurately assessed whether you are pregnant or not, you are advised to consult directly with your obstetrician and gynecologist. Through history taking, physical examination, and supporting examination, the doctor will evaluate the definite signs of pregnancy consisting of:
Identification of the appearance of a pregnancy sac, embryo, or fetus through ultrasound examination
Hearing of the fetal heart rate through examination with Doppler ultrasound (starting week 10) or Laenec fetoscope aids (starting week 18-20)
Fetal exposure through physical examination (starting 22 weeks)
At home, you are advised to get enough rest, eat regularly balanced nutritious food, and drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
