Hey i was wondering is Planned Parenthood will give me a pregnancy test for cheaper than if i went to my regular doctor? How do they do it? With blood or urine tests? Because that will effect when i go... it's only been 10 days so i dont want to risk getting a false negetive from the home preg tests, id rather go to a professional...

also, my gyno thinks i have endometreiosis, does that decrease my chances of getting pregnant? we used a condom, but it broke, and it was in my most fertile time...

thanks

Sometimes, because the boards are so busy, posts get overlooked. Our apologies.

Ultimately, the way to find that out anyway is to call both places and ask what their costs are, because costs differ from doctor to doctor and clinic to clinic, so we can't know that answer.

If you're going in early, whoever is giving you the test is going to give you which is most reliable test in your instance, so most likely a blood test.

thanks miz scarlet, do you think a home pregnancy test would be more reliable now that my period is late? or do you think i should still try to go to a gyn/doc/prof?

I think an HPT would be fine.

Really, they're usually quite accurate -- when you're not talking about taking them very early, and using them corectly, there's really no higher accuracy a blood test offers.
