  • After so far into a pregnancy, your body stops making HCG which is what the doctor is checking for in the blood test, so yes, it is very possible that she is 4 months pregnant and the doctor got a negative result. She needs to go see anothe doctor ASAP!

  • Find a new Doctor for sure! That would not be good enough for me. He should at least run more test to find out why she wasn't cycling for that long if he really felt she was not PG. Demand better care or find a new Doctor!
