What do we do if we don't have enough money to get a blood test
or an ultra sound? And what if the doctor refuses to give the blood test or ultra sound? I'm 15 days late. My last pregnancy
(which ended in a miscarriage
due to an infection) I had low HCG
levels. I'm worried I could be jeopardizing my baby's health if I don't detect the pregnancy soon enough. The doctor tried telling me that blood tests aren't any better than urine tests. If this is so, then why are the blood tests so much more expensive? Also, I've read up online and watched news videos. It's documented that blood tests are actually more accurate because the kidneys filter out the hormone, whereas the blood does not. I think all of you doctors need to keep updated on your facts. They change with new research all the time.
