What Are The Odds

Kate - November 15

Hey all. I'm 17 and 11 days late. Gah. Anyway. My boyfriend and I had s_x three times in the last month... and now being so late I'm starting to worry. We used protection and all that, but still. Also in the last month I have started a new job and have been extremely busy with some stressful school related things. Do you think its just my nerves messing me up or what? Also, know of any good pregnancy tests? Any info would be great!

Kate - It could be stress related or pregnancy related. The only real way to find out is by doing a pregnancy test. Clear Blue and First Response are good but so are some dollar store ones. I'd just look for the pregnancy tests which gives you a positive on the lowest amount of HCG present in your urine. First Response (I think) looks for 20 or 25 but Im not sure. It could be your nerves hun or stress like I said above. Since you used protection your chance of being pregnant are slimmer but protection does and has failed before. So there is still a chance. I would definitely do a test since you are late for your period. If its negative and your period hasn't arrived in another 7days then do another pregnancy test. If this test is negative and there's still no period then see your doctor (where everything is confidential) and ask for a quantative pregnancy blood serum test. This measures the amount of HCG present in your blood. Take Care!! :o)

I heard/read that the dollar store tests are the most sensitive as they require the least amount of hCG for detection. I am a__suming that they are only $1 also? Can't beat that price if they are!

I took a test. It said I'm not pregnant. We'll see what happens I guess!
