Doctor

A:   Most home pregnancy kits are quite reliable if the tests are done as per the product instructions. If you are still anxious about the possibility of a pregnancy you could visit your doctor or clinic with a request for a blood human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg) test. The blood tests are more accurate than the urine tests and can detect even early stages of pregnancy.
Your menstrual blood flow may be less owing to many factors including stress, weight fluctuations, recent illnesses, hormonal problems etc. The decreased blood flow may be a transient event however if the pattern persists you could visit a gynecologist for an evaluation.
