Not necessarily: Have you been taking OCPs regularly? If so, and when taken correctly, OCPs are up to 99.9% effective. Missing one dose or taking 1 dose 6 hr late simply reduces the likelihood that your birth control will be effective... which does not mean you are pregnant, just that your chances of NOT getting pregnant have decreased. Take OCPs the same time every day to reach 99.9%... and take a pregnancy test.

Maybe not, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed.
