you will get accurate pregnancy test only after 45 days ,so please wait for 10 more days n can check it in a pregnancy kid from med store

Dr. Riddhi Kataria

Hi. Having delayed period is not always the only sign of being pregnant. Sometimes stress levels or hormonal fluctuations can also delay your cycle. Have you always had regular periods? If not then, you can wait. If yes, are you experiencing some other symptoms of early pregnancy? Like nausea, tiredness, vomiting? If you are experiencing a white discharge, back pain, heaviness in vagina, you can wait for your periods to come in a few days.
Quick tip - you can always get a UPT (urine pregnancy test) done to be reassured.

Thanks for your quick response. Today i did tests with pregnancy kit and they came to be positive. what should be my next steps?

Dr. Riddhi Kataria

Congratulations. Your first step should be to be happy about it. Secondly you could go for a check up with a gynaecologist. She or He will suggest you blood tests to confirm the pregnancy and depending on your last menstrual period will suggest you for a scan in the 6 week of Pregnancy.
Rest, eat healthy. Only walk. Practice breathing exercises.
