User Profile
My period is now 5 days late i went to the er to day at around 4pm for some pelvic pain and discharge.They did a urine hcg test(negative) then theY gave me a shot in my butt, four pills to take and im supposed to start taking flagyl twice a day for a week but my body still feels as though i still could be pregnant. i have 3 children so i kind of know when somethings off ya know. Is it possible that i could be pregnant but it may not be showing in my urine? if so will all these different antibiotics affect my pregnancy if there is one. The doc said i only had BV why so many meds?

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

Pregnancy test kits are basically qualitative kind of test which just tests presence of hCG hormone in the urine of pregnant woman because this hormone is only produced during pregnancy among women. But this pregnancy test depends upon the particular level of hCG in the blood. So sometime it may be possible that it can give you false negative results during early days of pregnancy only because of un- sufficient level of hCG to make test positive. So it is important to get serum HCG test done which is more specific than urine for pregnancy test. If pregnancy is completely rule out then you can take these medicines.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
