    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    You can buy a test at any store, even dollar tree.
    fiannakyn replied to jkreuzberg's response:
    yea, dollar tree has pregnancy tests for $1 and they are pretty accurate from about the day after your missed period. They just dont have the fancy packageing of the name brands.

    Or you can get a test at walmart, target, kmart, walgreens, etc etc. Even order them online.

    If you really don't want this to be known by your parents yet, be sure to dispose of the test somewhere not in the bathroom trash.

    But if the test is positive, you will need to tell your parents.

    you should by a test and then wrap it up in toilet paper after you learn the results and then put it in the bathroom trash and then throw the trash in the outside dumpster
