The brand of test is required to work in order to be out on the market. They wouldn't be allowed to sell them unless they worked. one may have malfunctioned, but two of them? that's pretty unheard of. You need to give us more information about just how late you are. If you're only like a few days late then there are chances that your hormone levels aren't hight enough to detect. But if you're like 2 weeks late and the tests say negative, you're probably not pregnant. Do you know the reasons why you're periods are irregular? For example are you extremely thin or very very stressed? How irregular are you most of the time? Without all of this information the best I can tell you is to wait another week and if your period doesn't come, test again. You don't have to use an expensive test for it to be right. Most doctors won't see you for your first pregnancy appointment until you are at least 8 weeks along so in the meantime take your vitamins, eat right, and sign up for medicaid. No real insurance companies will probably take you once your pregnant because it is considered a pre existing condition. Good luck and please get back to us with some more information so we can tell you better how to handle this.

Sorry M, I was writing my post to you before yours came up. About medicaid, I don't think they're allowed to get rid of you just because you're 18... Can you tell us what the circ_mstances are?

ok i got medicare when i was little it was kids medicare i think and when i turned 19 they dropped me cause i was no longer a kid which is stupid but they did.The weird part is that if you are pregnant they take you automaticly.I am usualy a day or two late once in a while i will skip a month and start the first of the next month. well i skipped last month and havent started this month either i have been a little stressed, but no more than usual lol. I have been feeling really gasy and just horrible heart burn no other symptoms i dont know if i have a problem or if i am ive been trying to find out for a while but no doctors seemed to know any thing go figure. That was when i had insurance though. the other times i skipped i didnt have heart burn either i took one test sunday and one yester day both was negative they was the dollar tests i knew they would work i just didnt know if they was "sensitive enough" thanks for you help erica.

well If you want a really sensitive test and you have like 13$ to spare, go get a First Response test. It told me I was pregnant 3 days before my period was supposed to start! If I was you I would take another test in a week using first morning urine (preferably a really sensitive one) And even if it was negative, I would try getting some kind of insurance because you never know when something is going to happen. After that I would go to the doctor and see what's up with those periods. even if he says " I dunno" I would get put on some birth control to regulate you're periods. This way a pill induces them to come every 28 days on the money. If you can't afford insurance go to the health department and get looked at, then inquire about birth control there. They practically give that stuff away for free in my town! (probably to keep us from breeding like bunnies, lol) Also, there won't be anymore scares like this. As for the heartburn, for right now take some tums, they're great for calcium too, so it won't hurt. You're right though, gas and heartburn are some of the first symptoms of pregnancy that I got.! Good luck!

Thanks i wasnt using first morning urine so maybe that is what happened fo them both to se negative i thought if i was i could take to test any time and it would detect it. I was on b/c and it helped regulate it some but iwent off cause it made me really sick i tried a couple kinds and i just dont go wekk with b/c.I have been taking alot of tums lol i live on them lately. Thanks for the help
