positive test in the absence of pregnancy by ultrasound
Pregnancy is not, and a positive test - sometimes there are such cases in medical practice.For some reason, the tests may show a similar result, and what is dangerous for a woman?We will look at five possible reasons why the test is positive and the pregnancy is not, as shown by ultrasound.
1. Too early a date. good test with high sensitivity, can display two stripes already on the 10th day after intercourse, that is, almost immediately after the introduction of the egg in the wall of the genitals for further development.While not every doctor will be able to notice a tiny fertilized egg, and not in every honey.facility are modern machines ultrasound diagnostics.If the test is positive, but there is no sign of pregnancy, except for the absence of menstruation, it is necessary to visit a doctor for a pelvic exam.Or, just take a blood test for hCG.
2. Ectopic pregnancy. Unfortunately, if the pregnancy test is positive, while the ultrasound is no pregnancy, there is a high probability that the egg began to develop outside the uterus - such as in the fallopian tube.The situation is unsolvable.Female operate - remove the fertilized egg (sometimes with the fallopian tubes), since otherwise the possible rupture of the fallopian tube and death.To confirm or refute an ectopic pregnancy is possible only with the help of diagnostic laparoscopy, during which the decision can be made about the operation.
3. spoiled or incorrectly made test. sometimes caught in pharmacies tests that show an inaccurate result.But most women do break the sequence of the test, although it is very simple.For example, can hold the strip in urine for longer than recommended, or are trying to assess the result is within a few minutes, as recommended by the manufacturer, and in a few hours.Then the second rim may appear pale.That's the way, and there are reports about a positive test in the absence of pregnancy - but is nothing strange here.Precisely follow the instructions and get the correct result.
4. There are diseases in which hCG is produced.It cancer and diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, kidneys, etc. So, two stripes on the test may come and men ... And this is the reason for giving blood beta-hCG and a positive result. -at least visit a therapist.
5. recently had a miscarriage, abortion, ectopic pregnancy or non-viable. After their positive pregnancy test - this is normal.But only for a few days after the interruption.The number of days depends on the gestational age at which it was interrupted.
