When buying a pregnancy test, is it better to buy a kit that contains 1 test or a kit that contains 3?
Are u feeling lucky?: Whether to buy a kit that contains 1 test or 3 is really a personal & economic decision, not a medical one. However, if you're really 17yo, at the risk of sounding judgmental, I would just ask you to consider whether you want to have a child now or explore a bit of the world before settling down.

Use pregnancy test: If you have a normal period at the expected time, you are not pregnant. If your period is late, get a pregnancy test from the store. It is inexpensive (costs less than a pizza) and will inform you about pregnancy within days after the first missed period. There are no other reliable, self-administered tests to confirm an early pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In this situation I order several blood pregnancy tests in a row to see if the number is rising and get an ultrasound. ...Read more

The pregnancy test was negative. These tests are very accurate when done under the right conditions, typically after a missed period. Perhaps your period wasn't really missed, but just different. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
