Testpack During Menstruation Shows Positive Results?
Hello doctor. R n This August 14 2018, I had my first period, but until the 8th day I was still bleeding. Though usually only 6 days is clean. On the 7th day my body was shivering like a fever. Because I have a history of pregnancy outside the womb with shivering symptoms, I tried the testpack and it turned out positive. Are the results accurate? R nCan urine mixed with menses blood produce a positive result? R nThank you
From the information you have conveyed, if the results of your pregnancy test are positive during menstruation, then the possibility of vaginal bleeding that occurs is probably not menstrual blood.
When you are menstruating, it shows no fertilization has developed, so the HCG hormone is not formed in your blood or urine.
Thus, it is possible that this positive result indicates a false positive or that the bleeding occurring during this period is a miscarriage. However, all of this you need to re-evaluate by re-examining the pregnancy test 1 week later. And if the results still show positive, then you should consult directly with your gynecologist for examination and confirm your clinical condition.
The doctor will conduct an examination related to the risk of miscarriage and the bleeding that occurs. Thus, the obstetrician can determine the cause of the complaints that you are currently experiencing.
That is the information we can convey, read also the discussion.
