Can retest in a week: Can retest AFTER 7 more days. A urine preg. 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. ...Read more

It is not rare to have spotting every now and then. If it continues you should be evaluated by an obgyn for infection, polyps, fibroids and other issues. ...Read more
