Blood tests...........

OK, my friend justgot a call from the doctor & they said that she wasnt pregnant. They took blood, but they took less than an inch, my aunt just told me that they need atleast 1/2 a tube to be able to tell. Is that true?? Or does the amount of blood count??

Re: Blood tests...........

Ok well people look but i gues dont have answers. Does any one have a site or something that i can try to look it up on??? I kinda really need to know cuz my friend smokes weed & drinks & if she realy is pregnant i dont want her to do anything that would harm the baby.

Re: Blood tests...........

I don't think we are allowed to post web sites here. And I have no idea how much blood is needed. If you're friend is suspicious she should take a otc test and lay off the drugs & alcohol unti she finds out for sure.

Re: Blood tests...........

For my blood test they took very little blood not even a half of a tube. They take more later to check for disease and stuff..but I have had 2 blood tests in the last year and they are VERY accurate and they don't need much blood. If the doc says from a blood test she isn't then you can be pretty sure she isn't.
