Blood test: It would be better to take a blood test for HCG level. If at 6 days after a missed period, it is negative, that would rule out pregnancy. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is one explanation. If you do not wish to get pregnant, practice contraception all the time, every time. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!

Repeat in one week: Repeating a urine pregnancy test in one week is reasonable. Blood testing is more accurate than urine testing.
