& can I use OPK as hpt ? I used it last night got a very feint second Line & again this morning with fmu was a darker second line than last night ? I have 1 digi left but don't want to use it until Sunday to see if it says more than 1-2 weeks
Hi Jagamoe hope you get some solid answers soon. I'm just confused about your comment about using OPKs as HPT? I though they measured different things eg OPK measures LH and HPT measures HcG. So they can't be used interchangeably. Sorry if I have misinterpreted what you were asking. Hope the GP gets back to you shortly xx
Rang doctors blood results are back but she couldn't give them to me told me to call back mid morning to speak to the doctor ???
When looked at under a microscope, hCG and and the hormone responsible for the result you see on an ovulation predictor, Lh, are almost identical. The pregnancy hormone, hCG, is just a little more complex than the Lh hormone. The ovulation predictor is looking for a component that both hormones happen to contain. That is why, when you are pregnant an ovulation predictor test would turn positive. Thus, you can use a OPK as a HPT. You can not do this the other way around however and you should not rely on the test itself to confirm a pregnancy.
So I guess it could work but wouldn't be 100% reliable. Hurry up morning I wanna know my results
Just got off the phone to nurse hcg levels are 120 4 weeks pregnant which would be about right but my gp/OBGYN is on holidays for a month so I can't get in with him until the 1st of July. N can't afford to see the other doctors. So bit more of a waiting game test again on Sunday n see if digi days further along.
I've read with a thinner uterus lining it might not hold but then read more fertile after D&C. N then told after D&C levels drop alot quicker than normal miscarraige but can take a while depending on the individual so conflicting.
I'm going to ring n try see different dr tues again n get send for ultrasound if test come back pos on sat or Sunday. But the digi said 1-2 weeks preg & bloods say 4 weeks. Gaaaahhhhh in lost. I still haven't told my DP
If it helps I have a healthy 4 year old that was conceived straight after 2 m/c's without AF returning. I was the same and continued testing thinking it wasn't real. Can you get a referral off your GP for a dating scan to put your mind at ease until you see your OB?
