hey ok i was wondering if you can take a home pregnancy test when your on your period and get accurate results? i want to take the test but im not sure if i should wait until im off my period because i might not get accurate results. so basically can i take the test and will it work just as good?

Thank you!!!

Very few things effect the accuracy of home pregnancy tests, and menstruation isn't one of them.

Do keep in mind that if you're menstruating, you're most likely not pregnant.

If you are on your period, you are not pregnant. The whole reason a period occurs is to shed the uterine lining because a uterine lining is only necessary if there is a pregnancy. Therefore, if you are having your period, you cannot be pregnant.

In the meantime, like I mentioned in your last post, you seem to be having a sexual crisis; I hope you will take a long hard look at your sexual behavior and consider whether this is healthy for you and your body. Please take an effort to educate yourself fully about sex, how the body functions, and how to protect yourself before engaging in any more sexual activity -- it's in the interest of your health and your future!

Or find a birth control option suitable for you. Let's not forget some people are incapable of using hormonal birth control - I myself am allergic to oestrogen, and have to take the mini-pill.

Let me Edit...
Most comments I make are made in such a manner to be taken as general comments.. some what of a blanket statment, not individualized. That is true, though you have to find what works best for you as an individual.

ladydexeter was trying to help, just as you were. If you're going to be snarky, take it elsewhere.

La_bratti, either drop the attitude and give the sarcasm a rest, or find another message board. Smurf was just doing her job, and we do not tolerate verbal abuse of the volunteers around here. We do not get paid for our time and efforts, so the least we can ask is a little respect and kindness.

YOU GUYS ARE MEAN!
My apologies to the snark police or should I say Gestapo! By the way it’s ok for you to call me names but it’s wrong for me to call you the snark police??? That’s laughable…lol
I have not done anything that breaks your RULES, “You have created havoc where there was none”
I have not been unkind, or disrespectful.. and I have not verbally abused any of the users or volunteers….. you are abusing me?

Your language and attitude is far more severe than anything you could pretend I wrote. It was my opinion (I am entitled to it right?) That you, take your “jobs” too seriously. that must have really offended you. Lighten up!

Read all my post since your soooo interested in what I have to say, and you will see that I was posting for the “right” reasons. Go harass some snark azz who warrants it. (I hope that I am using the word snark correctly….its your word not mine, I’m just borrowing it!)

As far as u Mods demanding respect “or else”…..try giving it, I’m appalled at some of the slight of hand, personal attacks I have read from those “in charge” you can be very judgmental when it serves your personal needs….

I find your comments to be “.hateful, harassing, threatening “I can see after being on the boards for just a few short days….. You are a bit corrupted by your power? lol Who is being “salacious and disrespectful”, look at yourself ?

You may not know it but you may be in “hot water” it appears that the previous two post (OVERKILL) were meant to incite conflict which is against the rules….or at least something that can get you into “hot water”……Who is policing the snark police? I sooo demand Justice! lol…not realy

PS….thank for the link to the rules, I didn’t know it was scarlet law that I may not allow friends or family to use my handle, my mom will be sooo upset because she leaned over my shoulder once and posted a reply….hot water mom…hot water. "Let the punishment fit the crime"...ROTF

If you have a comment or complaint about any of the users or moderators of the boards you can send an email to Miz Scarlet at boards@scarleteen.com

Otherwise, i think we're just about done here.
