Hi Everyone - here's the situation. My cycle is usually 28-30 days. I was supposed to get AF three days ago (so today makes day 33) but nothing yet (here's hoping!!!). I have been having midday and evening nausea, on anf off cramping (sometimes constant and several times where I thought AF was coming FOR SURE, and then nothing). I have also had mild headaches and a mildly tender chest. Anywho, I have taken three EPT tests in five days, the last one yesterday with first morning urine and all have been BFN. In addition, I went to the doctor two weeks ago because I was having sharp pain in the lower right pelvic region and thought I had a cyst, but she found nothing. I want to go in tomorrow for the blood pregnancy test but was wondering what your experiences have been with these tests. Do they just measure the levels and then tell you that you are pregnant or not, or what? Thanks!!!

Just make sure you get the beta test done, that will measure your level of the HCG hormone. The other blood test just says yes or now like a urine test...but gives no numbers.

Ohhh, so the beta test measures the levels of HCG, and the higher the levels the more likely it is you are pregnant?

HCG tests work that if there is over 5 than your considered pregnant and if it doubles every 2-3 days its likely a viable pregnancy.
