Blood test: If the urine test results were not definitive, you may take a blood test for HCG level that should clear the issue. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow 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. ...Read more

Can i still be pregnant if i'm 1day late & negative pregnancy test. Believe ovulated the 10th. Feel like i'm about to have my period symptoms.

You can be.: Even if the test is negative, a lack of a period is pregnancy until proven otherwise. Now you may have your period soon, and so you will not be pregnant, if you have it and a negative test. However, if you don't have it, you should repeat your test in one week, and if still negative, or even if positive, see your doctor for a full exam and a repeat test. Good luck. ...Read more
