| | How accurate are blood tests?
I would really appreciate some insight here. O.k let me tell my story. On March 22nd I had sex for the first time, we used a condom but unfortunately it broke!! The next morning I took the "morning after" pill (about 8 hours after we had sex) My period was due on the 28th but it didn't show up, so I got scared and went to see a doctor. On the 30th I took a urine test which was negative, then I took a blood test, which too came back negative. But my period still hadn't showed up. On April 7th it finally came or at least I think it was my period (after reading all this stuff on implantation bleeding, I'm not so sure anymore). Anyway a week after my period ended I started having cramps, I've never had cramps like this before!!! That was when I started to really freak out. So I took yet another blood test to see if I was in fact pregnant or not, once again it was negative. But the weird thing is that I feel bloated and my breasts seem to be softer. The cramping is still on and off.
So I guess my question is, are these blood tests accurate? With 3 negative test results, should I just relax and stop worrying? I mean if I am pregnant I would be like 5 or 6 weeks along, wouldn't the last blood test pick up on this or is it still to early to tell?
Please help me out here!!
