What should I do? Please help!

I just got laid off less than a week ago and I took pregnancy tests like 4 days ago and they were very faint but there. The next day I took one and it was still there but alot lighter. And then the next day it was gone and it was not showing up. And my digital test came up not pregnant. Well now here I am at 16dpo no sign of my period and my boobs hurt so bad. This is very weird because my boobs NEVER hurt. Not even before my period. And I dont know what to think. I havent taken a test in 2 days because I have spent so much money on tests already. And I feel if I buy one that my period will start right after. I feel like I am pregnant. I just dont know what to do?

  • Oh yeah and I cant go to the doctor or will it cost a fortune because when I got laid off my insurance canceled. And blood work costs way to much without insurance.

  • go get on medicaid for pregnant women. as for your other problem it may be due to a low hcg level.

  • What anonymous said. It'd be free to you, except a very rare $20 dollar copay (I never had the copy at all).

  • I just want to know if I am pregnant or not. Cant get on medicaid if I am not pregnant. And my fiancee makes to much for that...I have already checked into that.

  • Your insurance *should* still be valied until 12/31....get in on Monday.

    There's no way anyone on this board can tell you whether or not you're pregnant...only a test can tell you that.

    Go to Planned Parenthood if nothing else. They do a HECK of a lot more than abortions.

  • I used a 1$ test from Dollar general. but I took mine at 45 days since my last period. It could be low HCG levels, but without knowing whether your preg or not will affect medicaid. If you are then you will be able to get it. I would go to the health department to have another test if you can't afford to buy another test.
