Repeat or see OB: If you have sx of pregnancy (nausea, breast tenderness, missed menses, fatigue, etc) repeat the test in a couple of days. Don't spend a fortune on tests, dollar store tests can be accurate but you get what you pay for (ie-not the most reliable...). If you want confirmation, see your doc or OB & get your morning urine checked since it's usually more concentrated & easier to see positive results. ...Read more

I took a first response pregnancy test about almost 4 weeks after sex. Came up negative. Is this a trustful reading ? Used morning urine.

I took a first response pregnancy test about almost 4 weeks  after sex. Came up negative. Is this a trustful reading ? Used morning urine.

Yes: A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) 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 therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
