Blood Pregnancy Test Question
I don't really think I am pregnant but am starting to doubt myself now. Quick history..... I stopped taking birthcontrol about 4 months ago. Couldn't stand the side effects so just stopped taking them. Had two normal periods but have missed my last two. I was supposed to start on the 1st of June which came and went with no period. Thought it was nothing and would come on next month but it was due to start today and nothing again. No cramping, bloating, nothing. I took two pregnancy test after my first missed period that came out negative however, for my two children, the pregnancy test came back negative for the first month and a half of both pregnancies. I also had a blood pregnancy test done on the 12th because of gallbladder surgery done on the 15th. That came back negative also. My question is, how reliable is the blood pregnancy test. Is it something that will show up positive the minute you become pregnant or is it possible for it not to pick up a pregnancy until a couple weeks into the pregnancy depending on the blood level of each person? Just wondering because a little before lunch today, I got really dizzy and am now nauseated. I called my dr. about my 2 missed periods and he wants me to go in monday but I was just wondering if anyone on here experienced a negative blood pregnancy test result when they were actually pregnant.
