Pregnant? - Page 2

post #31 of 49
Thread Starter 
Yeah, they want me to come in for a urine test and then possibly a blood test to check my hormone levels. I guess I better head out that way. They said they will charge me $15 for the urine test which is what I paid for the first response last night. I do have a card from them because I am uninsured and not working at the time. I got all my pills free from them. I'll let you know what happens when I return.

Well? Did they do the blood test for you or do you go back for that?

Well I went in and all they did was conduct another urine test, which came out neg like the others. They told me a bunch of stuff that I already knew and just sent me on my way. It was a total waste of time. They basically said just wait for my period to come this month and if it doesn't, then come back. They wouldn't do a blood test even though I was told they would on the phone. They said that is only if the clinic requests to do so. I guess now I just wait 2 more weeks for my period. *Sigh*

Have you taken all these tests in the morning? I've heard it's best to wait until your first urination when you wake up because there will be more of the detectable hormone in your urine.

No, not all of them. But a couple of them I did. That's 4 tests all neg.

Thanks for the update

Hmmm that's a strange outcome... if you don't get your period for a whole month and are still testing negative, I would look for a free or low-cost clinic in your area (like for low income/no insurance people and families) and have them check you out... it just wouldn't seem right for you to miss a whole cycle yet not be pregnant... that's what I would do if it were me anyway - heck I freak if I'm 2 days late!

One time, I missed three cycles.
The doctor told me that it was probably due to stress.
I don't know if it might be stress for you, since you are/were on birth control (I was not on birth control when this happened)?

Yeah, we will see in a few weeks when my period "should" be coming. Otherwise it's back out to see what's the dealio! I don't think it would be stress because I am not under and more stress than I have had at any other given time. Thanks everyone for all the advice though. I really appreciate it!

Maybe it's a subconcious thing - I miss several cycles and the more I worry about why I've not gotten my period, the less likely it is to happen! Stress doesn't have to be obvious.... maybe there is something bothering you that you don't know is bothering you. The human body can be a really amazing thing - mostly a pain in the butt though!!

Last year I had about 10 months without a period. I'm on BC, and my doctor ran all sorts of tests, and I'm not in menopause. I was pretty anemic, but taking iron didn't make my period start again, but it finally came back after my hip operation - I was in a LOT LOT LOT of pain before that operation and I'm just wondering if somehow my body was messed up because of that. I've been pretty regular since the operation. Except for the month after we lost my mom.

Yeah, even in times I've had a lot of stress I never missed. Sorry to hear about your mom. I lost my mom 8 years ago when I was 16.

I've read this before... sometimes just thinking you are pregnant can cause the body to go into a false pregnancy of sorts - just like with cats

Kinda weird. Hope you get the answer you are looking for soon!

Just an update. I haven't really been thinking about it so much, but I am still late. Due for my next period in about a week and a half. We will see how that goes.
