Does a blood test for pregnancy also tell you how far along you are?
Based on how high the hcg level is, a good guess can be made about the length of your pregnancy. Your doctor should do a vaginal sonogram to determine gestational age thus determining the due date.
However, higher levels of the hormone HCG are often found in the case of multiples. (twins etc.) Lower levels of HCG may indicate the egg has inplanted in a place other than the uterus. (Fallopian Tube = Etopic Pregnancy)

An HIV blood test can tell if you are pregnant. When doctors get results back from a blood test, though they may be testing for a specific thing other things will get flagged as well. For example, when you take a home-pregnancy test and then go to the doctor's to confirm you are pregnant, often they will run blood tests to determine pregnancy. An HIV blood test will show whether or not you have HIV…
Will a store bought pregnancy test tell you that you are pregnant if the pregnancy is an ectopic pregnancy?
There is a hormone called HCG that shows up when a fetus is growing. No matter where the fetus is growing, in utero or out. It will most likely pick it up but maybe not until farther along. If you think you have an ectopic pregnancy it is best to call a doctor IMMEDIATELY and get blood tests and an ultrasound.
A vaginal ultrasound can tell how far along you are. Also a blood test for HCG quants will tell also. Consult your doctor or clinic.

If you think you may be having an early miscarriage can you still take a home pregnancy test to tell you whether you were pregnant or not in the first place?
Yes you can still perform a pregnancy test. However depending upon how far along into the pregnancy you are, there is a possibility that the pregnancy test may be performed too early. Your best bet would be to see your doctor now and have a pregnancy blood test performed known as the Quantitative beta HCG blood test which will measure the amount of HCG in your blood. Or alternatively go to A&E now and inform…
Depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy, it may not be negative. The pregnancy test will be positive if you have a high enough HCG hormone level, so even if your fetus dies, those hormones will be present in your blood/urine, just in less amounts. A quantitative blood test at the doctor's would be able to tell if you should have a higher hormone level than is actually there- indicating a possible…
Pregnancy tests simply "look" for the presence of a hormone that is present when a pregnancy has occurred. After a miscarriage, a pregnancy test may remain positive for a while until all of that hormone has disappeared below the level the test needs to be positive. A blood (serum) pregnancy test (that you can obtain at a physician's office) can tell about how far along a pregnancy is, and this can be compared to how…
I am about 3 weeks pregnant.I have all the symptoms of pregnancy and i now have something that you would think is my period but passing blood clots.Is this normal in early pregnancy?
There are blood tests that can be done in the very early stages of pregnancy. There are also urine tests that you can purchase at a drug store or pharmacy. Later the pregnancy will cause the woman's body to change. The belly extends as the fetus grows, the breast become larger in anticipation of nursing the newborn.
Sometimes there are no signs of ectopic pregnancies. However, normal signs are pain, cramping, diziness, bleeding, or spotting along with the normal pregnancy symtpoms. If you feel like you may have any of these symptoms, you doctor can take blood tests to check your hormone levels and maybe an altrasound to confirm for sure. An ectopic pregnancy can be very serious, so if you have these symptoms, please contact your doctor ASAP. Good Luck!
