Regular periods: If your periods are always regular , depending on age and sexual activity you may be pregnant or stating menopause.

Recheck: Recheck in one week. Use a first morning urine sample for the test.
If l had intercourse today but i am one month late for my period can i do the test? Will the intercourse affect the results.

Yes. No.: A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result 1 week after missing a period, which means one can test today (having missed a period by 4 weeks). If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. Intercourse today doesn't affect today's results.
