      Hi! I am out of school and living with my boyfriend. Unfortunately I am unable to be on Birth Control due to a health condition, but we use other preventative measures (usually the pull-out method). I know that’s not always 100% effective but so far that’s been our preferred method… not the brightest, I know.

      Now, my question is… I don’t have insurance yet and have been pulled from my parents since I moved out. My last period was much lighter than normal, and I have have several other symptoms that make me think I’m pregnant. I’ve taken one home pregnancy test a few weeks ago (when my last period was due, but not normal) and it was negative. I want to go to a doctor for a blood test, but Planned Parenthood doesn’t do bloodwork and I’m not sure where else to go without insurance. Any advice? Should I just wait it out and see if my next period shows? (about 2 weeks out).



        There are some great centers in your area that offer FREE and Confidential pregnancy tests. All you have to do is go to and enter your zip code in the grey box. It will give you a list of centers in your area where you can go!!

        It is always best to wait at least 5 days after your period was to come before taking a pregnancy test. This gives you the most accurate results.

        I hope this helps and best wishes!
