This morning I got a positive result on a pregnancy test, which means that I'm about three and a half weeks pregnant now :-D!!!!. I had always thought the procedure was, get a positive home pregnancy test, then call the doctor. I assumed that it was important to A) have the pregnancy confirmed, B) have a doctor check to make sure everything was OK, C) get a prescription for prenatals (I've been taking the off the shelf prenatal for a few months now... I'm not sure if there's a difference. I was hoping a doctor could tell me) and D) have questions answered.
I'm new to the area, and don't have a regular GYN, so I looked at my insurance companies website and found a women's health center associated with an in-network hospital. I called them up and told them that I had a positive pregnancy test, and was simply asked, "What is your date of birth? ... How do you spell your last name? ... When was your last period?..." After going through these, the woman simply said in a condescending tone, "You haven't even missed a period? We can't do anything until you've actually missed a period, call us back in a week or two." She wouldn't even schedule an appointment for whenever they can "do something."
Is this normal? Is there anything I should be doing now? Is the positive result inaccurate because it's before my missed period?
