Brief Answer: Blood test for pregnancy Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. As you had intercourse around the time of ovulation, there is possibility of pregnancy. Though symptoms are suggesting the possibility of pregnancy, just by symptoms we cannot come to one conclusion regarding pregnancy. Sometimes urine pregnancy test kit may not detect early pregnancy. So, once go for blood test for pregnancy. Quantitative blood test can give more accurate result compared with urine test. Depending on the result of the test further management can be planned. Meanwhile you go for symptomatic treatment. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the response, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.

Brief Answer: Ultrasound Detailed Answer: Hi, The possibilities are: -Sometimes only scanty flow can be seen during periods. This is called hypomenorrhea. -Possibility of delayed ovulation and chances of pregnancy. -Menstrual irregularity due to hormonal imbalance or other causes. So, once consult gynecologist, get examined and go for ultrasound. Ultrasound helps in finding out the possibility of pregnancy. In the absence of pregnancy, ultrasound can give some idea regarding the cause for menstrual irregularity. Take care.

Brief Answer: Repeat blood test for pregnancy Detailed Answer: Hi, Sometimes irregularities in menstrual cycles can happen due to many causes leading to confusion. If you cannot go for ultrasound till March, you can repeat the quantitative blood test for pregnancy. Possibly this will give some idea about the possibility of pregnancy. If the test gives negative result again, the possibility of pregnancy is less. Take care.
