Wink Re: Menstrual period help.

I would tell your gf to see her gyn and see what's going on. Do you guys practice safe sex?

I don't wanna scare you but I was also late with my period and took 4 home pg test and all came back negative .... Needless to say I was PG.

I went to my Dr and they had to do an ultrasound and that's when I found out. How is your gf feeling? Tired? Morning sickness? Or anything?

Keep us posted ... And have her get to the Dr.

Hi Panga.

Your girlfriend needs to see her doctor for a Quantitative Beta HCG pregnancy blood test. This test will measure the specific amount of HCG present in her blood and is highly accurate in comfirming pregnancy. The other tests, blood and urine, aren't very reliable. But this blood test is. She can have the test now.

Stressing about being pregnant will also make her period late. Get your girlfriend to try a few different brands of pregnancy tests incase the brand you used wasn't reliable.
