Technique: If you did the test correctly at four days after missed period, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. You may take a blood test for HCG which is more sensitive and would be positive now if you are pregnant. Or, you could repeat the home test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.
