  • If you are worried about preexisting, what is the hurry to find out if you are or not?

  • Stress can make your period not show up. Calm down and stop worrying about every little thing. Don't be in such a rush to find out right this second, especially if you are worried about the insurance. Give it another week or so and then test again. And try to relax.

  • If you are pregnant. You will find out eventually. You do not need to be in such a hurry to rush to the doctor about it. Doctors can not really help you right now anyways. Stop worrying so much about it. And if you are not pregnant, just late. You worried for nothing.

  • between medicaid and a midwife, pregnancy can be cheap for those without proper health care coverage. You cycle could be longer due to a variety of things: stress, diet, weather, etc. It's best to take care of yourself as if you are pregnant. Test again next week.

  • insurance through employers cant discriminate by pre existing conditions, so dont worry about that. i would wait a few days, test again, and if you still dont start, get ablood test

  • doctors dont automatically do blood tests for pregnancy. if you do to a dr. they will do a pee test first.
