The Right Time To Do A Testpack?
Night. I was late coming in 1 week but 3 days ago I tried a negative test … and yesterday I woke up experiencing a very dizzy and accompanied by nausea until now the dizziness was still felt … what I want to ask is whether the testpack is done when? Thank you before
Hello Octavia Indriani Tabaga Goan,
Testpack is a pregnancy checkup tool that detects an increase in the hormone HCG in the urine. The hormone HCG is produced by the placenta, meaning that an increase in HCG levels in the body can only occur after the attachment of fertilization results in the uterus. HCG can be detected> 7 days (mostly on the 10th day) of late menstruation, provided you have a regular menstrual cycle every month.
Many testpack brands are in circulation today and have varying sensitivity. Negative results on the testpack inspection can be caused by the following things:
Got pregnant but then miscarried
Examination too early
Incorrect inspection method
The tools used are less sensitive
Testpack examination should be used in the morning, using urine for the first time. Testpack can be directly dropped with urine when urinating or the urine can also be collected in a container then the testpack is dipped into the container. This is usually written in the instructions for using the testpack, you should follow these instructions in order to get accurate results.
Testpack examination if negative and you feel early signs of pregnancy such as abdominal cramps, enlarged breasts, nausea, mood swings, sensitive to odor, can be repeated 1 week later. Use a testpack tool with good sensitivity and note the tool's expiration date. Check according to the instructions on the testpack packaging. If the examination remains negative, confirmation of pregnancy can be done by an obstetrician through an ultrasound examination or examination of HCG levels in the blood.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
