Repeat test: If you did the test correctly and it was negative at three days after missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. It would be prudent to repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. 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.
