Not if negative : Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. After this much time clearly you are not pregnant. See your doctor for irregular periods. ...Read more

It is unlikely that you are pregnant - given the negative preg. test at this time of your missed cycle. It does take approximately one week after a missed menses to begin to reliably verify a pregnancy by a urine test. Consider retesting in one week. Avoid medications until then. Good Luck! ...Read more
