    Default Positive pregnancy test - now what?

    Hi there

    I am new here so I hope I have posted my question in the correct place.

    I am 4 days late and had just tested positive to a home pregnancy test. What should I do now? Should I contact a GP to get another test or should I see my ob-gyn?

    (I have an ob-gyn already as I need to get some ovarian cysts and endometriosis removed earlier in the year)

    Many thanks
    Christina

    You can go to either your gp or ob and they will do a blood test to confirm. Congratulations

    Congrats. I would go to GP, get confirmation and bloods done. Then if you have Private health insurance find an OB. But firstly see GP. I went public with my 3. Saw GP for confirmation and bloods and then GP booked hospital. I did share care which meant I saw GP fir most of care and then midwives later. Talk to GP, and again congratulations

    Oops just re read that you have OB. I would still get confirmation from GP first and bloods as far cheaper . Then contact OB or even get letter from GP for OB. At this early stage OB and GP would do same.

    Go to GP first. You'll need a referral from them for your OB in any case if you want to claim the OB fee with Medicare.

    Congrats! I'd get thee to a GP first. Unless you feel more comfy with your OB, I've never dealt with one, so I'm not sure how they work re: referrals and the like. A GP will just take your details, as a few questions, and give you the pathology form for the bloods
