Do you trust the pregnancy test strips?

I really have to know if I'm pregnant because I'm taking harmful medicine that could hurt the baby.I took a test today and it said negative, but how many moms had that experience and they were pregnant?Were you pregnant anyways from a negative test?

  • Yes. Call your dr for a blood test and/or pelvic to confirm.

  • Pregnancy tests are rather accurate when it comes to positive results. Negative results however are iffy things, it could merely mean you tested too early and your hormone levels are not what they should be to trigger a positive result. I have at time tested too early and received and negative just to turn around a few days later and have a positive. If you think you're pregnant but are getting a negative on your pregnancy test wait a few days to a week and test again.

  • I can't wait 2-3 days or a week I have to know now,the medicine harms the baby. But I've read some woman got 3 blood tests and they were all negative and she was pregnant,so I'm going to stick with the urine test?

  • I only trust the positive ones.. I'm really paranoid. I don't know how blood tests can be wrong, I'm sure its possible but they're supposed to be WAY more accurate so I'd def. call your doctor and schedule one if you REALLY need to know

  • you're much more likely to have a false negative than a false positive. if you are worried about the meds you are taking and need to know, get to the doctor now. btw blood tests are WAY more accurate than urine tests. anybody who tells you otherwise doesn't know what they are talking about.
