I dont normally have pms so long before my periods starts. Did preg test last week was neg? Can someone please give me some advice!!

You can try a day before your period is due with a blood test, but this may be negative even if you are pregnant.

With all my pregnancies, The pregnancy test at the pharmacy was spot on, as early as 2 weeks

Do a blood pregnancy test, is more accurate &  reliable before the periods. It only takes 30 to 60 minutes to get the results back. With lancet lab it cost R97. Good luck hope u are pregnant.
