Blood test: If you get a blood test for HCG level, at five days after a missed period, it will provide conclusive result. Pull out is not a reliable contraceptive method.

Birth control : Your periods can vary in the time of onset but yes, a pregnancy is of concern. With a neg preg test, your odds of pregnancy are low. Time to evaluate the choice of contraception for your lifestyle and be adequately protected. You can set up a consult to discuss this further. Be protected and be in control when you want to be pregnant
