Hi my boyfriend and i have been together for 2 years and for the past 1 year we really havent used protection, but i was on the pill. I have been off the pill for about 3 or 4 mths now and yes we still had unprotected sex. I know stupid.

But now i am 3 days late, i fianlly got on a regular schedual.. but i took a pregnancy test and it came out negative... i dont understand! Could it have been the test because it said that it would take a few min. but it only took like 20 secs. Could i have gotten a bad test? Or is it right?

A result THAT fast does strike me as a bit iffy.

I'd suggest taking a second test. If you're going to use an at-home test, be sure to take it with your first morning's urine, and when you buy the test, check the expiry date first to be sure it's current.

You will also wannt to schedule STI screens for you both, and obviously, if you are not prepared to become pregnant, should you have lucked out this time, you'll want to start using reliable birth control.

Thats what i thought and i did check the date, but it wasnt until 2007, but i also did the test mid-day. I have never been late for my period before and im alittle nervous... I have a doc. appt. tomorrow, but i was hoping to get some kind of result sooner, but that was not the case.
