I made an appointment with my obgyn for Friday (the 1st) because I am 10 days late with a bfn and I want to know one way or the other what is going on. The receptionist said that they will do a wellness check (pap) which is fine, I need one anyway because I've been putting it off and she said they will do a pregnancy test too since I am 10 days late and getting negative results at home. When I asked if it would be a blood test she said she wants sure what the doctor would choose to do. I still have 1 home test that I plan to take anyway either on Thursday or Friday morning.
My question is, if they say that they want to do a urine test can I request a blood test too or instead? I'm having no luck with the urine tests and I'd rather just have the blood test so that I can be sure one way or the other if pregnancy is the cause of my missed period.
The Dr. probably has to follow the rules of the insurance co. You can ask, but it does not guarantee you will get what you want. GL
