Yes: If the last episode of sex was more than three weeks ago, had you become pregnant hpt would be positive. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If the result is negative and you do not get your period, you may wish to re do the test in 4-5 days.

HPT are Reliable: Yes. But your period came as scheduled. So I do not see why you would ask this question. You already had your answer.
