So sorry to hear about your experience. Note that you shouldn't border yet until further tests and scans are conducted in few days or weeks. There are two possibilities in this instance, the one is that the pregnancy is too early, or is not advancing due to implantation factors or the second possibility is that of an ectopic pregnancy. If the pregnancy is too early, the uterus might be empty and you'll need to do another test. So you can't conclude anything yet. You need to see a gynaecologist.
Please, doctor, can a pregnant woman take Nescafe?
Yes a pregnant woman can take coffee, but you should not take too much. It is advised to take 200mg a day which is equivalent to 2mugs. Coffee contains caffeine. Caffeine constricts blood vessels. Too much caffeine has been linked with miscarriages and having small babies.

Candida yeast infection in 11 weeks pregnancy ?
Yeast infections during pregnancy are more common than any other time in a woman's life, especially during the second trimester of pregnancy. You may be noticing an increase in the amount of thin, white, odd smelling discharge. This is common and a normal symptom in the second trimester.
What are the best sleeping positions while pregnancy ?at what period of pregnancy can i start lying on my side because am sleeping on my back and abdomen
The best sleep position during pregnancy is “SOS” (sleep on side). Even better is to sleep on your left side. Sleeping on your left side will increase the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the placenta and your baby. Keep your legs and knees bent, and put a pillow between your legs.
I just had a preterm baby of 35weeks, I'm a second-time mom. how do I care for her at home? thanks
Dr Aina Johnson

Paediatrician

For feeding, most of the preterm babies won’t be able to suckle continuously, hence feeding will be via cup and spoon and baby is put to breast at least once or twice a day. As the baby gains more weight, and the doctors are now comfortable allowing baby to suckle continuously, mothers will be informed.

There are 2 options, try to have another test in 1-2 weeks time to confirm. Make sure it's a blood test, not just a pregnancy stripe Urine test. You can try in another hospital/clinic/diagnostic center too
Please, what are the causes of neonatal jaundice?Are there any preventive measures to follow during pregnancy so as to avoid s...
  • Best Answer
Jaundice is actually due to high level of a substance called BILIRUBIN in the blood of the Newborn. It is this Bilirubin that is actually yellow in colour…..and it is the staining of the eyes and skin by bilirubin that causes the yellowish discolouration known as Jaundice. In fact another name for jaundice in newborn is Neonatal Hyperbilirubinaemia…..too much bilirubin. Remember this bilirubin, because all problems from Jaundice is the bilirubin and all treatment for jaundice in the newborn is to remove bilirubin or at least to make it safe because bilirubin is toxic or poisonous to the brain of a newborn

Congratulations Chidera!
My LMP is 12 August please how many weeks pregnant am I? Please help me calculate it's confusing me
U are 5weeks 2days
Pls doctors explain to meThis is my scan result
Test results show you're pregnant. Early cyesis means the state of being pregnant (An Early Pregnancy Scan (sometimes also called a Viability Scan or Dating Scan)); the period from conception to birth when a woman carries a developing fetus in her uterus. You will need to do a scan in 2 weeks to confirm the pregnancy. All the best
I'm 4weeks pregnant, can I start taking the small small yellow folic acid.

Folic acid can help prevent birth defects known as neural tube defects, including spina bifida. So, try ask your doctor for more details

I will advise you to do a blood pregnancy test in 7- 14 days to be sure. From your description, you spotted for 2 days before your period flow. If it was pregnancy, the light blood would have probably stopped in 2 days Maximum. I would have argued it was implantation Bleeding. Read more about implantation bleeding online.

The doctor is in position to explain the result of the diagnosis to you and your wife. It's hard to speculate.
I went for scan and the result state suspented sex Female. Should I start buying female things or I should repeat the scan
it depends, how old is your pregnancy? I bit will advise you to wait a little bit if the pregnancy isn't up to 30 weeks yet.

At 20 weeks, scans are more likely to be accurate by then. At that time, you’ll get an ultrasound, and the technician should be able to tell the baby’s gender but not that it's only about 90 - 95 per cent accuracy. The biggest reason for the error is that it’s simply too early for the technician or doctor to see the gender clearly. So you may want to wait a bit to rule out doubts
