A member asked:

My period is 6 days late and i took a pregnancy blood test 2 days ago and it came back negative. i also have been taking urine pregnancy tests and they have been negative. should i take a urine pregnancy test tomorrow? will it be accurate?

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.
