| | Blood Tests and Pregnancy
The past few weeks I've been tired and kind of depressed. I had my regular physical July 20, and he had me go to the lab for some tests. They drew blood for a glucose test, thyroid, and one other - might have been anemia, I forget. They all came back negative. I've attributed these symptoms to having my hours cut at work - I've been stressed. Now, my back is hurting. There is nothing I've done that would cause this. I've also gotten dizzy when standing. My period is late, which isn't odd because it's not always regular. It was supposed to come in late July. The last time I had sex was sometime mid-July - he has inpotence problems, so we didn't complete it. I'm just wondering if the blood test would tell if I'm pregnant or not, or was it taken too early? It was taken a couple days before my period would've started. I've just never had all these symptoms at one time before, and it's a little scary. Any ideas about the blood test? Also, I'm 22 years old if that matters.
ETA: This is not an "Am I Pregnant?" post. I want to know if a HPT is neccessary. Thanks.
