Unprotected sex, delayed periods, clear stringy mucus. Missed birth control pills. Pregnant?

Hi I have been on the pill for 9 months. I ve missed a few days of my pack. On the last day of my pack I had unprotected sex and am now 8 days late. I ve had a feeling of a full bladder for a few days and have had clear stringy mucus when I ve wiped. I took a hpt yesterday but it came back negative. Could I still be pregnant? Ive also been experiencing small cramps

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

The pregnancy test look for HCG which is secreted during pregnancy, initially the levels are low but they increase as the pregnancy progresses.

In most cases home pregnancy tests should be able to confirm pregnancy by day 11 to 14.

You can consider repeating the test in 4 to 7 days to determine if it is truly negative.
The other option would be a blood test, done by your doctor. HCG is picked up earlier in the blood.

I hope this helps
