Test 3 wks after sex: A urine pregnancy 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, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

If you did the test correctly and it was negative 2 weeks after a missed period, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor.

Game plan: Length of your cycle: Day 1 is when there are first signs of coming on a period, count the days until the next period starts. The number of days of bleeding does not matter. Normal cycles are 25 - 32 days. You ovulate between 32 - 14 = 18 and 25 - 14 = 11. Sperm survives for 4+ days. Since you won't know how long your ongoing cycle will be, have sex on days 7, 9, 11, 13. Good luck. ...Read more

You may repeat the test in 3-4 days, if you do not get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
