  • Make sure you take the test first thing in the morning because your urine is most concentrated then and has more of the hcg in it for the test.

  • I didnt get a positve test till i went and say my doc and i was already 4 months pg the test at home were all neg but i had so many sings so i went and saw her. You could go to your health department for a test they will not charge you or maybe your state has something that can help you out. i know in wisconsin they have what they call badger care its for pg moms that dont have health coverage. and for there children.

  • Do some research online to find the most sensitive test on the market and then use it first thing in the morning. If you had an Ectopic Pregnancy , you would have had brown spotting and you would have pain on one side. You are FINE! Give it time! Take another test, if you get a neg. again go to the doctor and get a blood test! Also, once you have a positive conformation from your doctor you can go apply for Medicaid for Pregnant Women!

  • Do you have Birthright or Aid to women in your area? The will both test for free. Please don't wait any longer. A tubular pregnancy can kill you.
