Lot's of "if's": IF you have a normal next period, you can be pretty sure. IF you have a normal period and are also "negative" on a urine pregnancy test, that's more sure.

Missed period: Wait and see if your period is one week late and then take a home pregnancy test. Pregnancy isn't the only reason for a late period (if you have regular periods) but it is a pretty common cause. If you have irregular periods, consider waiting about 4 weeks after the last time you had intercourse before testing. Remember a negative pregnancy may be false. Follow directions closely
