Brief Answer: Kindly get a urine pregnancy test. Detailed Answer: Hello, I apologize for the late response; I was away from my computer due to unavoidable reasons. Coming back to your question, after analyzing your query I feel you could be pregnant. As you have missed your periods it is better to get a urine pregnancy (home test) test done. Depending on the findings treatment can be planned. As you had unprotected intercourse you are at high risk of getting pregnant. Also you can get a clinical examination and a scan to confirm the findings. If the pregnancy test comes positive you need to decide whether to continue it, if it is negative you can be given progesterone tablets for withdrawal bleeding. I also advise you to go for some contraception like copper T or implants or injectables or permanant sterilization depending on your choice. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!

Brief Answer: wait for 3 to 5 days and repeat the preganncy test Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX Kindly do not worry, as your pregnancy test is negative it is unlikely that you are pregnant. If you are very much concerned then kindly get a scan pelvis to confirm if there is any pregnancy. Another option is checking serum beta HCG levels. I personally feel you can wait for another 3 to 5 days and repeat the urine pregnancy test , if it is still negative then get a clinical examination and scan. If everything is normal you can be given progesterone tablets for withdrawal bleeding. Once you get your periods it is important to go for some contraceptive method of your choice. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!
