    Personally I think they should be free or cheaper and come with the sale of condoms or lube :rofl: . It would also be awesome if sex toy shops gave them out free with any purchase :mamoru: . What do you guys think? My friend just had a baby a week ago and last year Insom bought like 15 different tests so we could find out if she was prego. She must have spent like $15 on each one.... Thats ridiculous!!!!

    Well, the price of them and the fact that I felt the need to buy 15 of them... okay so I am a little OCD.

    Back on topic though ;) I think the blood tests should be a little cheaper. Pregnancy tests (the urine ones) are no so bad on the wallet. But blood tests are sooo expensive! At least with my health insurance they are. I have to pay the lad fee/ the doc fee/ etc. Then again I haven't had a scare in a while. But it should be easier I think.

    Just because I think too many women go on without knowing they are pregnant for too long and do think like drink/ smoke potentially harming the baby.

    Another reality apparently
    :rofl: The first time I had a pregnancy scare with my SO, we went to walmart and got 2 EPT tests and a bottle of KY. The look on the persons face at checkout was priceless.

    We did it intentionally for that reason though, and to help lighten up the mood so she would worry less. Everything turned out good though.

    Pregnancy tests are free at our local health department though.

    Yeah Kate freaked me out when she was still smoking, I gave her a guilt trip which I think kind of pushed her a bit more to take the test :dunno:

    The only thing I dont like about PP is they are very rude. I went there in HS to get birth control and the girl behind the counter was yelling out information across the room. Sooooo rude!!!! This poor girl sitting next to me heard her name and the receptionist was like how late are you??? Everyone in the waiting room now knew she was pregnant....

    Haha we dont have walgreens here at least not that Im aware of....

    Truth is the only really accurate test is a blood test. As Insom said above they should be cheaper too!

    Very true. But then again urine is not always accurate. So say you miss a period, take a urine test and it says no. You continue drinking/ smoking/ not eating right/ etc then next month you miss your period again. You take another urine test.. it says no. You figure, meh, might as well get a blood test. Congrats mom you are now 2 months pregnant!! YIKES! That is scary!

    yea, when my x took hers, 3 of the urine ones came up positive
    then the blood test just confirmed it
    theyre pretty accurate

    When my best friend got prego I bought a zillion tests and P2E and I rushed to my house. Haha, then we all took one to make her feel better. We put all three tests side by side (2 neg and 1 positive) and we were going to take a pic and send it to all of our boyfriends and freak them out. Hahahha, we decided to get trashed instead, well P2E and I. While Kate told her BF. We had a "thank god I'm not pregnant" party.
