Testpack Results Are Positive But Not Visible When On Ultrasound?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Often, the calculation of estimated gestational age by ordinary people is not the same as the doctor's calculation. In the medical realm, gestational age should be calculated based on LMP (first day of last menstruation. Therefore, it is necessary to explore first, exactly when your LMP?
A positive testpack result is most likely a sign of pregnancy. As for pregnant women, the fetus will often only be evident when the womb has reached the age of 8 weeks, or more. However, if it is true that you are pregnant, and your uterine age is the same as you expected (5-6 weeks), even if the fetus does not yet appear, there should be a pregnancy sac in your uterus. Your condition that has not shown any signs of pregnancy at all on an ultrasound examination may occur due to miscalculation of the age of the womb and examination that is too early.
Apart from being pregnant, testpack results can sometimes also be positive in other conditions, for example due to inadequate testpack procedures, urine contaminated by drugs or bacteria, ectopic pregnancy, wine pregnancy, empty pregnancy, and so on. Indeed, it could be that you experience due to an ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus). However, if the condition you are experiencing, often you will also feel severe stomach cramps, nausea, and abnormal vaginal bleeding.
Our advice, follow your doctor's advice to do a re-examination to a gynecologist in 2 weeks so that you can be sure of the exact conditions that underlie your complaints.
