Hello Good Evening,

Yes you might be pregnant, but you have done urine pregnancy test so early.

The urine pregnancy test usually detect hCG between 6 and 12 days after ovulation.
However, it must be taken into account that total hCG levels may vary in a very wide range within the first 4 weeks of gestation, leading to false results during this period of time

The urine test detection thresholds range from 20 to 100 mIU/ml, depending on the brand of test.
Early in pregnancy, more accurate results may be obtained by using the first urine of the morning (when hCG levels are highest).
When the urine is dilute, the hCG concentration may not be representative of the blood concentration, and the test may be falsely negative.

So wait for next 3-5 days, then after go for a repeat urine pregnancy test of first void urine of the morning.

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

As your periods are delayed, you can get UPT done, blood HCG levels are more precise.
Increased frequency of urination could be due to urinary tract infection. Get urine routine and urine culture done test done.
Get blood sugar level to rule out Diabetes, as there will be increased frequency.
You need to get examined and evaluated for your infertility problem.
Consult your doctor for examination and management.
Hope I answered your question. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take

Dr. Vidya
