I am 18 and i have taken two pregnancey test and they both came back positive. I need to know if i have the right to say no to doctors taking blood from my arms. Is there another way for them to take blood. I am hoping that they can take blood from my fingers like a finger prick and only have a few drops of blood can that be done??

Hi,

Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. It depends on the tests to be done whether the finger prick (capillary blood) will do or blood has to be withdrawn from the arms. For the pregnancy test, finger prick will do.

I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
