How to spot your test results
A test result is not necessarily indicative of whether a person will become pregnant, and can even be misleading.
To help ensure that your test result matches the picture you are hoping to get, here’s a quick guide to spotting test results.
Is the test positive?
Is the result positive?
If your test comes back positive, congratulations.
It means that your results are accurate and that the test is valid.
It does not necessarily mean that your baby is pregnant.
However, if you have tested positive for the Zika virus, your baby could be infected with the virus too.
If you have a fever or cough, a positive test result could mean that you are too ill to get tested.
It is worth asking your healthcare provider to check your results for the virus and to make sure you have not been exposed to it while pregnant.
This could mean you are infected with another virus, or that your blood test result does not match what you would expect.
If your results come back positive for Zika virus infection, it is likely that the virus has already infected your baby.
The Zika virus can be spread through vaginal or anal sex.
If the virus spreads through sex, it can also be transmitted to a baby during childbirth, which could cause birth defects in the baby.
Is your baby fine?
If the test result comes back negative, it means that the Zika test did not detect Zika virus.
This is not a problem, but it does mean that the testing has not been able to show that you do not have the virus.
If Zika is found, your test could be invalid.
If a test comes out positive for a Zika virus test, but not Zika virus itself, it could be because the test has been contaminated with the other virus.
In this case, your Zika test result might also indicate that you have an increased risk of having another virus as well.
If this is the case, it may be wise to go to a healthcare provider and get tested for another virus.
Are there other options for a pregnancy test?
Another way for Zika to infect a woman is through sexual contact.
This means that a Zika test might also be useless if the woman has had sex with someone who is infected with Zika.
If that happens, it might be best to have an additional Zika test done to see if the virus is present.
This would be done by a healthcare professional, or by an ultrasound or CT scan.
The person who is tested may be at higher risk of getting Zika infection, so a second test might be more useful.
It could also be worth having another ultrasound or a CT scan done to check the woman’s vagina, cervix, uterus or other areas.
If no Zika virus is found in the test, there is no risk of pregnancy.
If there is a Zika infection in your body, you might have other Zika symptoms, including headache, fever, chills, joint pain, fatigue, vomiting, rash, rash discharge or more.
These may include: a rash or discharge around your face, neck, hands, feet or elsewhere; a rash that may be red or slightly pink, which can be painful or may look like a burn on the skin; swelling of the mouth, face, lips or other parts of the body; or itching and soreness in the area.
If all these symptoms occur together, it would be better to see a healthcare practitioner.
Are other people tested?
Another possibility is that a test may have been run on someone else, possibly a family member.
This does not mean that Zika infection has spread through their bodies, but that it could have been a factor in an other person getting the infection.
This has happened before with Zika in the womb, so the virus could have spread to someone else.
If an infection was detected during a pregnancy, the virus might not have reached a fetus at the time it was detected, which would mean that no pregnant woman could have passed Zika virus on to her unborn child.
If it does happen, the Zika vaccine might be useful.
The vaccine is made up of two different proteins that are not made from the same virus.
It protects a baby from getting Zika, and if it is effective against Zika infection during pregnancy, it will help prevent many other infections.
The vaccines are also made up from different proteins and can react differently to the virus, making it hard to predict when a person may get the virus from their own body.
If someone has tested positive and has not had Zika, the chances of getting it through a family or friend is low.
The only other way to be sure that you don’t have Zika is to get a second Zika test.
If one of the tests is positive, the odds of getting the Zika infection from the first test are even lower.
If both tests come back negative for Zika, then the chances are high that you were infected with a virus that was passed on by another person.
The chance of transmission is also higher if the second test comes from someone who has
