Please forgive me, but I need to rant for a moment. I realize that the entire point of coming on this website is for people to ask questions and get advice. But seriously, do women not know how to figure out if you're pregnant? I know there are many signs, but there are only a couple of ways to be sure. The biggest way to be sure is just to be patient. If you think you're pregnant: don't drink, smoke, do drugs, etc (you shouldn't be doing that stuff anyway!). Take some vitamins, and if you are late and your pregnancy test isn't telling you what you want to hear, then make an appointment with a doctor.
I realize that there are situations where it is dire and extremely important to know asap if you are pregnant. I am on medication that causes birth defects and if I was pregnant it would be important to know as soon as possible. But telling everyone when I had sex and about when and how much I've been bleeding and what my pregnancy test says isn't going to tell me anything. No one on here can tell you something that a pregnancy test and a doctor can't.
And for crying out loud. If you don't want to listen to anything I've said, then PLEASE read all the 10,000 other posts that people have written asking about the exact same thing. The answers they got are going to probably be the answers you get: go to the doctor and take a pregnancy test there. don't test so early, test again in a few days.
Ok, done now. Thank you for listening.

Oh Enna, you should be a moderator and have to read all these questions. That's why most replies are "Take a test".

lol Enna. I once wrote about the same thing, but didn't post it. I was feeling the SAME thing you are and was almost thinking there should be a red flagged post that states about asking about being pregnant. Some days that is about the whole 2 pages are just different people asking pretty much the same thing. Love the post :)

LOL Enna, I hear you. You aren't the first person to rant about this, I guarantee it. I, too, wonder why people think a stranger on the internet can tell them something a pregnancy test or a doctor can't.
