Hello all! Ok here is my story! About 2 months ago I had the Mirena(IUD) removed after having it in for 2 years. Had my period May 9th-14ish. My husband and I had a slip up while I was ovulating. It is now 29 days since my last period and all hpt have been negative. Also, I dont know when to expect my next cycle because with the Mirena my periods were all messed up. I am having cramping, im bloated, veyr moody, and sore breasts. Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated!

Hello knearns,
A qualtitative hCG test detects if hCG is present in the blood. A quantitative hCG test measures the amount of hCG actually present in the blood.

In general the hCG levels will double every 72 hours. The level will reach its peak in the first 8 to 11 weeks of pregnancy and then will decline and level off for the remainder of the pregnancy.

So, a qualtitative hCG test is fine for determining pregnancy.

Thanks so much! Do you think either type of blood test would be able to detect or the hormone or just the quanatuve test( the one that will tell me exact levels of hgc)?

Hello knearns,

There is the possibility that you could be pregnant because you say that you had unprotected sex during ovulation.

You could make an appointment to have a blood pregnancy test. A blood pregnancy test can detect hCG levels as early as 11 days following conception. Or, you could wait until the end of the month to see if you get a period.

Having a history of irregular periods does make this difficult.
