    Thereís really nothing absolute but seeing a Dr for a blood test. Depending on when you took the test it could be too early typically itís best to take a test by your missed period for accurate results. Iím not clear on what kind of timeline you took this test, is it a week post ovulation? Too early is your period due? Test should be accurate...


    Im more concerned with your mindset...I can only speak for myself of course but Iíve had drunken sex and every time itís been protected. I donít want to get pregnant, so I donít risk it...even a little...itís far too easy to put a condom on drunk or not. Also how is Ďnew remationshipí an excuse for not having proper birth control in place? If you Ďcanít handleí a pregnancy right now Iíd think that would be the utmost importance. Infact post divorce...the second I started noticing men again getting on birth control was number one on my to do list, so I hate to say this but you need to get honest with yourself. Youíre acting WAY too reckless for someone who Ďcantí deal with a pregnancy and honestly if you donít get it together you will eventually end up knocked up. Tell your boyfriend to wrap it up! See a counselor about your eating disorder and first things first if you arenít pregnant, get on birth control.

    Time for you to get honest with yourself. If you can handle sexual encounters you can handle proper precautions. Drunkenness is not an excuse.

    So on the 10th you wrote you were seeing a Dr. About your eating disorder in two days which would have been the 12th 2 days ago, you didnít think to ask your Dr. For a blood test???

    When is your period due? I think it is premature to see a doctor before your period is due. Take another test on the day your period is due, then one week later if your period has not started. If your period is more than a week late and the pregnancy test is negative, that would be a good time to see a doctor.

    Itís not premature if youíre reduced to asking a bunch of strangers on the internet if youíre with child.

    A Dr. Can and will advise properly, in person, knowing the OPers mental wellbeing as well as her physical.

    FWIW, I had a positive pregnancy test as well as a positive blood test before my period was due.

    Get to a pharmacy for a pregnancy test. And get to a clinic/doctor for STD testing, a checkup and a reliable form of birth control in addition to some sex education and a supply of condoms to protect against both STDs and pregnancy. Get some counseling about the drinking and irresponsible sexual habits. Why wouldn't this guy wear condoms?? Do not have sex with anyone who refuses to wear condoms and do not have sex drunk. It's that simple. This has nothing to do with "food issues", that is the least of your problems. Do not play with your health. Learn responsible sexual habits.

    I had sex on the day I ovulated, completely unprotected with my boyfriend. Itís a new relationship so had no birth control.

    I tested when I was 8 days late because I didn't want to be disappointed that I was not pregnant and get a false negative, etc. However, the test said I could test up to 5 days early (this was over 10 years ago, maybe now you can test even earlier). The symptoms I had other than being a little late mimicked PMS symptoms.

    You can test before your period is due, but the accuracy is only in the high nineties typically on the day of the missed period and then close to 100 by a couple days after the missed period. Thatís why I would wait to rely on the results of the pregnancy test (especially a negative one) until on or after a missed period.

    I think a well-timed at-home pregnancy test is a logical first step before seeing a doctor for a blood pregnancy test, which are more typically done to confirm a positive at-home pregnancy test. A doctorís visit to discuss contraception and safe sex would be a good idea regardless of the pregnancy test outcome.

    Geeze... back in the day we used to take a urine sample into the pharmacist and two hours later we got a positive or a negative.

    Yes, I agree, that is what I did and confirmed 5 days later with a blood test (I took my preg. test out of town).

    I don't think she has to discuss contraception or safe sex. My sense is she knows and takes a casual attitude. Apparently she even knows when she is ovulating..

    Which is the very reasn why she should be schooled on contraception and safe sex because she's likely going to be lax and she's going to trust that she won't get pregnant if she looks on some chart that tells her when and when not she's ovulating. I think we'd be remiss not to educate people at the very least. (whether they listen or not is up to them)
