  • It is common to get false negative's early on. If you missed January and February both though you should be fine taking the test now. Most can tell a few days before you miss a period. The dollar store ones can tell within a day or so of your first missed period. Good luck! Let us know how it turns out!

  • If you don't have insurance you can always go to planned parenthood....

  • Sounds like implantation. If you've missed periods you should test positive by now. Dollar Tree and Dollar General both have $1 pregnancy tests so buy a couple and try again. If you are low income you can apply for medicaid for pregnant women.

  • i live in cali and ive just moved here from washington and i guess you have to pay like 150 for the test and blood work im currently live with my fiance whos going to school as well as me with no money like that so i would be safe with just a normal pregnance test i just dont wanna take it wrong i mean theirs only so many things you can mess up im just worried about the timing should i wait longer since the bleeding or does it matter i havent told my fiance yet and i dont even want to bring it up inless im 100% percent sure

  • The health departments will usually give pregnancy tests at no/minimal cost. They are more accurate then at home tests and if you are pregnant they will do your initial exam on the spot if you want them too.
