Patient's Query

Hi,

I had unprotected intercourse with my partner a month back. I did not ejaculate inside her. Later, to be sure, she did a home pregnancy test after 21 days, and it came negative. Since yesterday, she had a vomiting sensation, has not been able to eat anything, and has light stomach cramps and a light fever. She did a pregnancy test today morning again; it came negative. We are confused and worried that she is pregnant. She has PCOD, also. She had her last period 45 days back. Do we have to go for a blood test?

Answered by Dr. Sameer Kumar

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The best way to rule out pregnancy conclusively is a serum beta HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) test if she has not had her menses yet. If the HCG levels are less than 3mIU/ml, then she is not pregnant for sure. The delay in menses is then likely to be due to PCOD (polycystic ovarian disease) itself. An ultrasound pelvis would be required to confirm the diagnosis and then a withdrawal bleed can be opted for with progesterones to initiate a bleed.
