Me and my wife have been trying to have a child for two years?
Hello please help me and my wife. Me and my wife have been trying to have a child for two years. She eats healthy. Exercises daily most of the time. But her periods are irregular and for the past three days she’s been having symptoms of pregnancy but two tests came back negative one took today and one took last Tuesday. She’s 4 weeks late period (we think) her last period was last month 19-26. Idk if her hcg are just too low or what. But 99% of the time of her period or about two days before she gets breast pain. But she hasn’t got breast pain. She has weird feeling stomach. Some pain in the pelvic area. Dizzy sometimes. Better sense of smell. But still no positive.
Do another test on 2nd – 4th of March if no period until then, on same date see a gynecologist regardless of test result
These could be signs of pregnancy ,usually HCG test is positive after 7-10 days of conception ,showing 10 mIU for example may indicate pregnancy,I recommend redoing the bhcg test after 3 days as the results needs to be doubled in healthy pregnancy after 72hours..
If otherwise found then this may indicate unhealthy pregnancy like being ectopic pregnancy… So now if there is pregnancy it is supposed to be about 4-5 weeks and USG can show a sac in the uterus if there is healthy pregnancy..
Wishing your dream to come true..
if u have done home pregnancy tests,they are usually negative in some cases of early pregnancy.
bHCG test is more sensitive and u should get it done after 5th march.
An ultrasound of abdomen can also be done to look for gestational sac.
Regarding your concerns
1- if the period came late or early up to 7 days before or after in regards to the last period, that’s accepted and we do not consider it as it’s irregular, so your wife is in the normal range,
2- pregnancy signs are vague, variable, non specific, differ from a female to another, I think symptoms is due to stress of the crave of having a baby… Or May be not it u can repeat the test in blood after few days
3- I recommend you both to. Do the following (a) for you , u should do seamen analysis, then if everything seems to be fine , (b) then the gynecologist shall examine her and do her some tests
4- how old are you both and how long have u been married ?
Waiting for your reply
Thanks for the query..
As it is already 4 weeks that your wife is late in her periods then by now her pregnancy test would have been positive..
Many a times delayed periods can be due to hormonal imbalances and not pregnancy..
So my suggestion is to consult a Gynaecologist and get evaluated and a blood test can be first conducted to rule out pregnancy as it is highly sensitive test..
Also by now fetal pole can be seen in sonography, therefore a transvaginal sonography can also be done for further confirmation..
Hope this information helps..
