My boyfriend and I have sex everyday and are tying to concieve.I took a dollar home test last night and result said negative. Should I take another one or what?? I NEED FEEDBACK PLEASE!!!!!!

    Oh and I forgot to add that I have been having some of the pregnancy symptoms. And my last period was Dec. 22nd-29th.

    I would wait a few more days and try again... never know. Maybe you are just having an odd period, or maybe you are pregnant. If in doubt, just go ahead on in to your doctors office and they can do a little more digging if you are concerned.
