Question: tengo una pregunta de una preva de embarazo.. que me ise hoy y espere y nomas salio una linia y me fui a aser de comer y volvi y tenia positivo.. y nose si son asi las provas de embarazo..
Answer: La mayoría de las pruebas de embarazo requieren que se espere una cantidad específica de tiempo antes de leer los resultados. Si usted se pasa de ese tiempo específico, lo más posible es que los resultados podrían ser inexactos. Sí le preocupa todavía que esté embarazada, le recomendamos que haga una cita en Family Planning (440-352-0608) para una prueba de embarazo.
Question: I’d like to know exactly what happens when you go in for a pregnancy test. Ex) Is it a blood or urine test? Do you have to get a pelvic exam? Cost? Anything else you know of?
Answer: When someone comes in for a pregnancy test, the social worker on staff meets with the patient. Pregnancy tests here at FPA are urine tests that take 3 minutes for the results. When the social worker has the result of the test, she meets with the patient to discuss the result and all options if the patient is pregnant, and discusses birth control and STI/HIV testing if the patient is not pregnant. Pelvic exams are usually not part of a pregnancy test appointment. The cost will be based on the the patient’s income, and where she falls on our sliding fee scale. Please call 440-352-0608 for more information.
“How would i know how for along am in my pregnancy, is there one day of the month we go by? If my last period was on February 7 and my due date is November 14..”
A: For questions regarding a pregnancy, we recommend scheduling an appointment. During the appointment, the patient will have the opportunity to ask any questions as well as figuring out how far along a person is in their pregnancy. To schedule an appointment, call 440-352-0608.
“I was wondering if there are any fees to come in and take a pregnancy test? Im a week late..home tests are invalid. Can I walk in or do i have to make an appointment?”
A: Here at Family Planning, the cost of a visit is based off a sliding fee scale. The sliding fee scale is determined by a persons family size and income. We recommend calling to schedule an appointment for a pregnancy test. Depending on your age, we do have Teen Clinics where patients can walk in without having an appointment. However, those times are specifically geared toward teens. To get further information, we recommend calling our office at 440-352-0608.
”i have been off the birth control pill for several months and had unprotected sex today. It really scared me so I started taking the bill again right away. If it is the same day will it prevent pregnancy? Hiw do I know if I should even be concerned about ovulation?”
A: “It takes one week for birth control pills to become active. Anytime you have unprotected sex there is a chance for pregnancy. If you had unprotected sex near the time you were ovulating the risk is greater. Ovulation takes place about 14 days before the start of your period. A sperm cell can live up to 7 days inside your vagina. ALways remember to use protection correctly and everytime you have sex.”
“I had a daughter from my last marriage, even though doctors told me I had low sperm count, Now I’m with some one else, we have had unprotected sex for over a year and still can’t get pregnant, show we only have sex on ovulation?”
A: “Since I am not a doctor, I can’t give you medical advice regarding your condition. YOu may want to contact your medical provider with your concerns. But, a pregnancy is most likely to occur, if you and your partner have sex when she is ovulating. Typically ovulation occurs 14 days before the start of her period. A sperm cell can live up to 7 days inside a woman’s reproductive tract, but an egg only has a window of 24-36 hours to be fertilized.”
“Hello, Well i am 18 and i was supposed to start my period on march 10th 2004 because the first day of my last menstrual was on Febuary 10th 2004. My period is one week late today, and i dont know if im pregnant i have been peeing a lot and eating more too. I’ve also had severe headaches and some light nausea when i eat certain foods. me and my boyfriend do have unprotected sex but we have been tested and we are only with each other. the last time i took a preg. test was on march 6th 2004. we had, had sex on the 4th so i think it was too soon to take the test. the last time we had sex was yesterday march 16th so my question is when should i take a test? thank you very much for taking the time to acknowledge my question i hope to hear from you soon.”
A: “You should wait to take a pregnancy test until after you miss a period. Since you did not start your period for March, I recommend taking a test as soon as possible. You can purchase an over the counter test or you can schedule an appointment at Family Planning to take a test.”
“My last period started 2/1 and I got my next period 3/10, when is a pinpoint time to get pregnant?”
A: “A woman is most likely to become pregnant when she is ovulating. Ovulation typically occurs 14 days before the start of her period. Since most women’s cycles are irregular, it is difficult to judge exactly when ovulation will occur”
