Pregnancy Test – How Soon?
Q: OK, so I might relax my mind as she is unlikely to be pregnant. But she still experiences headache that seems like cracking in her head, along with vomiting. I don’t know what is happening to her. She had not menstruated yet. Her lump in the armpit has disappeared. She has normal vaginal discharge. What could be her problem?
Headache is not related to her gynecological problem. This is a separate symptom. Most likely, it appears to be Tension Headache. You may read here about tension headache.
Your girlfriend seems to be passing through a lot of stress. I recommend that you get the pregnancy test done once again. This will assure her further.
Also, sometimes pregnancy tests are falsely negative. This is because pregnancy tests detects the presence of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) hormone in the body. So, the test can be falsely negative if :
1) the timing of the test done is too early – how soon? – before 14 days of LMP
2) or there occurs some negligence in the technique of the test.
So getting it done a second time would be better.
Her menstruation has not returned back in a normal way yet. This is likely to be because of the medication (norethindrone).
