My HPT keep coming up negative, and a doctors PT came back negative too. My last period was Nov. 10th, but it only lasted 4 days and it was light, I had no cramps or sore breast either like I normally do when I get my period. I have been very tired, hungry, full of gas, and moody lately. What should I do to find out if I am pregnant or not, because I have no insurance and I can't keep paying doctors to keep getting the same answer through a pee test?
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Urine pregnancy tests cannot be relied upon for accuracy since they have high incidence of giving false negative results. Next time you visit a doctor/gynecologist request for a thorough examination to look for signs suggestive of pregnancy (blue veins on breast, soft and purplish cervix, bulky uterus etc) and get a blood HCG level test done (it is accurate than urine test) to confirm/rule out pregnancy. An ultrasound scan done along with hormonal analysis will also help to confirm/rule out any other underlying cause for absent periods.
