Hi, i have several questions. I have been trying to get pregnant, and recently
took a home pregnancy test that was positive. My first question is: Should i
repeat the home pregnancy test to make sure, or should i see an OBGYN soon to
confirm the pregnancy?
Second question: Should i start taking any supplements besides folic acid, which
i am already taking? Recent blood work showed that i had low levels of iron and
vitamin D and my PCP recommended taking supplements before she knew i was
pregnant, but i haven't started taking these yet.
Third question: The reason that i saw my PCP was because i thought i might have
an UVI. I was experiencing frequent urination and urgency and i noticed a strong
smell when i wiped. She took a dip stick of my urin which was neg. but
prescribed a 3 day course of Pivmecillinam Hcl anyway, and said that i could
wait and see if the symptoms got better before starting the antibiotic. The
symptoms seem to come and go, and now i might be pregnant, so should i take the
antibiotic or not?
Fourth and last question, i will be away from home for 5 weeks, should i see
OBGYN during this time or wait til i get home and see my own doctor? Thanks for
your help. :)
