Doctor :  
i8 will suggest you to get a blood HCG level done along with a Complete blood counts
Doctor :  
the urine pregnancy kits can sometimes miss to pick pregnancy if the concentration of HCG hormone is less.
Doctor :  
so in such cases, blood test is more confirmative
User :   another thing me and my fiance have ALWAYS been safe we have even checked the condoms to make sure no holes
Doctor :  
and also if there are changes in blood counts due to weight loss that too will be detected.
Doctor :  
ok

Doctor :  
pregnancy is known to result even with 'precum' as it contains sperms
Doctor :  
so if you have come in contact with that then there is risk of pregnancy
