  • Yes to the bloodwork

  • Blood work is the most sensitive for pick up hormones that are triggered by pregnancy.

    For the urine test, it is best to wait a week or even two before using it and to use it FIRST thing in the morning as the hormones build up over night in your urine.

  • Yes, if you go to the doctor it will show up on your blood work, if you are pregnant. You can also get a false negetive sometimes. I would recommend waiting though, because periods aren't perfect and sometimes they come late. I have my period regularly and once it showed up 2 weeks late! I was stressing lol! Try taking another home pregnancy test in a week if your period still hasn't started.
