Dr Owen : Hello
Dr Owen : Have you had recent sex too in the past 2 to 3 weeks?
Dr Owen : A few things, you could still be pregnant as you could of had a twin pregnant that reverted to a singleton pregnancy.
Dr Owen : also, this could be a new pregnancy
Customer: Yes but not in the past seven days
Dr Owen : of if you are using a new pregnancy test from a differnent company then you could have two different t tests with different sensitivities
Dr Owen : so what I would suggest is a blood pregnancy test and then repeat the blood test if positive 24 hours later.
Dr Owen : that would be the only way to know what is going on.
Customer: They were all clear blue with conception indicator tests.
Dr Owen : Okay
Dr Owen : well then you need that blood test to figure out what is going on.
Dr Owen : and then get a second test 24 hours later
Customer: Can HCG levels decrease to show a negative test then rise again?
Dr Owen : if you started with twins yes
Dr Owen : that is usually the case
Customer: And symptoms disappear, then reappear? I'm sorry I'm just really confused at the moment.
Dr Owen : i understand
Dr Owen : so the only way to know is with the blood tests
Dr Owen : so could still be pregnant
Dr Owen : But blood testing is needed
Customer: If it was a twin and one is still holding on, would the significant drop in HCG harm it?
Dr Owen : Hard to say, there are no hard and fast rules for this
Dr Owen : so the only way to know are with the blood tests
Dr Owen : you can wait a week to repeat the urine test
Dr Owen : if still positive then still pregnant
Customer: I may do that. My doctor didn't offer blood tests. I'm in the UK
Dr Owen : he should offer them
Dr Owen : if. You want to know sooner than a week from niw
Dr Owen : now
Dr Owen : i wish there was a better alternative
Dr Owen : so blood tests now or wait a week for another urine pregnancy test
Dr Owen : I wish you well
Dr Owen : and I hope this helps
Dr Owen : thank you
Customer: It takes two weeks to get a doctors appointment so I guess I'll wait for the urine test. You've confirmed what I already knew. The only part I don't really understand is if hcg levels show you're pregnant, then low hcg levels and a negative test shouldn't be possible if you were carrying a twin..
Dr Owen : It can be possible you started with a twin that then became a singleton so hence you need a blood test if you want to know early if you are still possibly pregnant
Dr Owen : So hcg levels can be all over
Customer: Ok thank you for your time
Dr Owen : you are welcome
Dr Owen : please click on EXCELLENT
Dr Owen : THANK YOU
