After how many days it is possible to carry out a pregnancy test
How many days can I do a pregnancy test in order to get an accurate result?This question has been widely discussed among young women.If counting from the date of intercourse, then about two weeks later.That is the correct answer to the question of how many days after conception, you can do a pregnancy test - is 14 days, at least.
Why should I wait so long?The fact that immediately after intercourse sperm begin their journey to the female egg.And this way can take 1-2 days.After fertilization (conception).But the fertilized egg now need to get to the uterus.And it may take another 6-7 days.After arriving in the uterus, the egg is embedded in its wall.And only after that it starts production of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin - the same one which reacts home tests.
chorionic gonadotropin is produced only during pregnancy, some serious diseases and taking drugs, which include this hormone in a synthesized form.
Each rapid test has a sensitivity.The smaller the amount of hCG it is able to determine - the higher the sensitivity.To find out the pregnancy test shows how many correct result - read the information on the packaging of the sensitivity (in numbers), and take a look at the growth plate of hCG during pregnancy.During pregnancy period of 2 weeks all the modern tests already show the correct result.
course, try to do a pregnancy test before the delay may be 10 days - it is possible that hCG has produced and can be fixed at a rapid diagnosis.But note that even in this favorable case, you need to consider some of the nuances.For example, the fact that the second rim can be barely noticeable, paler than the first.But it should also be regarded as a positive result if the test is done correctly, following the instructions.The second strip of "ghost", which actually is not, may appear a few hours after diagnosis, and after such a long time to assess the results anymore.False positive result can be the case if the test strip dipped into a urine drawn deeper dashes.In any case, to clarify the need to take a blood test for HCG (if the result of an urgent need to know) or a week later to repeat the test.And after a delay pregnancy test can be done in a couple of days, without the risk of making a mistake.Or even just the first day of absence of menstruation.By this time may be other signs of pregnancy.Such as light toxemia, fever, breast engorgement.Women who are pregnant for the first time is not usually very easy to determine their "situation", even without testing.
