Unlikely: Many on BC will see a lessening or loss of menses over time. A urine pregnancy test would be positive by 3 wks after conception as this creates chemicals that would turn up in the urine. You may want to call the docs office nurse & discuss your concerns.

Yes: It may be too early for a reliable result from a home pregnancy test. Suggest repeating the test in 2 weeks if no period or abnormal looking period.
