Question: Missed Period...

 jody2323 - Mon Oct 25, 2004 9:53 pm

Well...I have been on birth control since I was 16 and just recently I missed my period. It's been 7 days now and I have taken two home pregnancy tests and both were negative...I'm still concerned that I may be pregnant...I hear all these stories about negative results that aren't so there still a possibility that I may be pregnant? Should I go to the doctor and get a blood test done? HELP!! Any thoughts?

well give it a few more days. like a week. but then if you don't get your period, go see your doctor. you may not be pregnant. but there could be other things stopping your period. ive known girls that went months without getting their periods and not because they were pregnant. don't be upset it might just be something minor, okies!
