Depends: Did you have unprotected sex? Did you miss a period? If the blood test was done after missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. You may do home pregnancy test in a week or so, if you do not 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.
