Q: 

Not sure if I am pregnant

I've been taking BC for about four years now and it has stopped me from getting my period. It hadn't ben a problem until me and my boyfriend started having sex. Since I don't get my period I can't tell if i've missed it.
For a month now I have been extremely moody and getting upset or annyed with everything. I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative for the first two minutes, but when i came home hours later i was currious to look again at the sameone and it had a faint positive line. I realize that after 10 minutes you should ignore what you see but it also said that it could take ten minutes. What should i do??

Hi Anonymous,
It is possible, but highly unlikely. You would have to have a very short menstrual cycle or a tendency for very long periods. This would bring the time of ovulation very close to the start of your period. If you really think that you could be pregnant, make an appointment to have a blood pregnancy test done. The blood pregnancy test is more accurate than a home pregnancy test. Do you see a gynecologist? He or she can advise you regarding irregular menstrual cycles and when to be concerned about a late or missed period.
Hope this helps,
Maryann

Hi Anonymous,
I agree with the above post. Your doctor can do a blood pregnancy test, which is more accurate than a home pregnancy test. Knowing will give you peace of mind.

I would go ahead and take another one. If you have the same results I would go and see your physician just to be sure. It's better to know if you are pregnant so you can take the steps that you might need to take if you are. And if your not it's a sigh of relief and a talk to your physician about what could be going on to cause your emotions to be all over the place. Let us know what happens!
