h__lo ladies! I am 17 and could possiably be pregnant. I want to get a blood test done to see if I am. My parents do not know. I will tell them when I am FOR SURE that I am pregnant. ( if i am ) Are there clinics that will preform blood test to test pregnancy that do not require insurance or parent consent? I live in tampa FL. I know like at Planned Parent Hood you can get a urine test dont w/o parents but can you get a blood test done anywhere??? any info would be great!!! thnx so much

Blood test are the most definate. But pee tests are pretty accurate as well. Sometimes it will tell you negative when you really are pregnant because it isn't sensitive enough to pick up the HCG in your system. But if you get a positive you can be pretty certain you are pregnant. Those tests work by picking up HCG in your system which is only present in pregnancy. So even if it is a pee test that picks it up you can be pretty certain. Have you tried the pee test and are unsure of the results? I ask because I don't know where you can go for a blood test without insurance.

Yeah, that one positive would have me confused also. That is a lot of money you spent on hpt's. Call a doctors office and ask them how much it would cost to get a blood pregnancy test done without insurance. Also ask at what age they can perform the test without parental consent. I think 17 would be old enough but it depends on your state laws. I believe, although I could be wrong, that most places consider you to be in charge of your body at 16. I was 19 when I went though so I'm really just not sure. Just call.
