User :   My menstrual cycle is late. I was on Yaz in June - The beginning of July. I had two cycles in July and pretty much had breakthrough bleeding from June - July. I do not recall menstrating in August. I expected a cycle August 31st to start. I have taken 7 pregnancy tests 4 of which were morning samples. Can I trust these tests?
Doctor :   Hi,
