A negative pregnancy test (Home test) after 3 weeks of intercourse. Can I still be pregnant? Can I rely the test?

Depends. Did you miss a period? You may wish to re do the test in 5-7 days, if you do not get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the 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. Get HPV vaccine. Read more...

If my period should start around now (and it hasn't) and I take a pregnancy test tomorrow morning, what is likelihood of the home test being accurate?

Wait another week. 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...

How long should you wait for your (missed) (7 days) period before getting a blood pregnancy test if all your home test are negative?

Any time. Blood pregnancy tests are usually positive a day after the missed period. Home tests may be at that time and are generally positive 4-5 days after missed period. If you are 7 days past missed period; did the home tests correctly, you do not need the blood test as you are not likely to be pregnant. You may wish to see your doctor for ultrasound exam.
