Usually UPT will be positive around the expected day of next menses, if pregnant.
Eventhough your are negative even after missing periods for 10 days it is highly unlikely you are pregnant.
Your age is 46, you may experience menoupausal symptoms which includes disruption in normal menses.
You have been prescribed drug for regulating your menses.
There is no need to abstain from sexual intercourse while taking those drugs.
But if you are planning to get pregnant dont do while taking hormone pills.
