A 22-year-old female asked:

Is a pregnancy test accurate 28 days after sex and more then a week after lighter period that lasted normal 5days and started on time , used first morning urine?

Pregnancy test: The test should be accurate during this period of time you describe. If there is concern about pregnancy then waiting a week and repeating the test would be worthwhile.
