Likely* not pregnant: I am not a gynecologist, but as I understand it, home pregnancy tests have become more accurate over the decades. Depending on the type of test u use, a negative test at this point would be more than 95% accurate, probably more than 99%; however, u cd always go to a Gynecologist for confirmatory testing if u have doubts. Not all sex leads to pregnancy; & sometimes unexpected pregnancies happen!

Ultrasound: It would be prudent to see your doctor to confirm or exclude pregnancy. If you are pregnant it is all the more important that you seek care for the sake of your and your baby's health.
