  • Any time you decide to. You're probably not pregnant, but you never know.

  • In many states there is a health department.
    they will do a free blood and urine test and let you know from there.
    if you are preg.. they will get you set up with insurance until 6 weeks or so after the baby comes!
    I would see.. better to be safe then sorry.

  • @2autisticsmom...I don't have a doctor...

    Then stop at a clinic, hospital, or planned parenthood like Rosehawk suggested. Better yet GET a doctor.

  • you could miss a period due to birth control that you may be on, stress, or a number of reasons. my mother had a dream about my neices holding a newborn baby boy two days before i tested positive and didnt tell me because she thought that maybe my pregnant sister in law would have a boy instead of a girl, but said that the skin tone was off for them, so when i told her that im pregnant we both freaked out a bit. its possible to dream about it, but you may be paranoid because of your missing period. i'm not sure if you use birth control, but ive been on several that took away my period and made me freak out. you can do a walk in (or appointment) pregnancy test at planned parenthood or family planning and without insurance, i think mine was 15 dollars in the clinic. i'm sure that there are waivers if you cant afford it, and some doctors offices do testing for free if you just call and ask.
