Unless you are obese, a complement nurse would have detected a 20 week pregnancy during a pelvic examination. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV and Covid vaccines. Wish you good health!

Home pregnancy tests are accurate about a week after a missed period. Plan B is not 100% effective in preventing pregnancy.
