Hi,

After how many days, after missing the periods, can we go for pregnency checkup?
And also, tell me the procedure, how can we check at home.

I heard that some pregnency self checking kits are available in medical shops.
what's the name of such kits? How much is the cost?

Please help me.

Ideally one week after you miss your periods its good to take pregnancy test at home. Most of the cases its accurate.
I myself have used it and it works perfect.
You can look for Velocit kit at medical shop. All the instructions to take the test are given along with the kit.
Two purple lines indicate positive and one line indicates negative. The cost is very low just 50 Rs per kit.
After the test is positive please go to the doctor and take her suggestions so that you can deliver a healthy baby.
All the Best.

If you are in regular period you can get the result after 5-6 days missing your period.
You can buy Home Pregnancy Test which is available in any medical.
Also first in the morning fresh urine you have to test.
If the pregnancy test is positive you should meet your gynecologist who can suggest you for the best.
All the best.
Thanks

This totally depends on your Cycle. This is really advisable if you miss your cycle for five to ten days you can go for pregnancy test.

Best part for that is you first check yourself with home pregnancy test which is easily available from any medical shop worth 40 to 50 rs. and easy to use.

Once you are confirmed for pregnancy then you should take care of yourself and visit a good Gynecologist and have future suggestions from him or her as she advice you for better than any other.

If doctor confirms your pregnancy then you have to eat healthy to keep yourself fit and make yourself much prepared for your delivery. Medicines are much compulsory to make yourself strong in pregnancy period.

Good Luck!

Pregnancy Test can be done after the cyle is missed by 5 to 10 days of the menopause period. Pregnancy Kit is easily available at Medical Stores at very low cost and can be done in home. You have to just read the instruction carefully. In morning you can use the urine for better result. if result is positive just visit gynacologist

Hi dear,

First of all congratulations if you are on the family way.

Now about the home or instant pregnancy tests, as you have been told, if you have a normal and regular period you can expect accurate results within 3 days of missing your period.

But, make sure that the sample you are using is the first urine of the day, that is just immediately when you get up in the morning.

As more days pass by you can get the same result even at later stages of the day.

There are various instant pregnancy tests available in the market. A chemist can provide you with one.
All these kits have the procedure mentioned clearly on them, but still Iam letting you know.

Take a sample of your first urine of the day and with the help of the dropper provided in the kit, put 2-3 drops on the well designed in the tray.As soon as you do this you will see a line appearing.One line shows negative result while two lines means it is positive.

In an other kind of kit you get strips, which you have to insert directly in the sample of your urine.

Though these tests have proved to be reliable but still always consult a doctor for verification. It would add to the happiness and you will get more and more health advices and medications from the doctor.

Hope you are satisfied.

Regards
Take care
Shweta
