User :   the test said i wants pregnant
User :   should i believe that even though today was my 4th missed day instead of my 1st?
Doctor :   mean positive for pregnency
User :   no it said i was not pregnant
User :   it said negative
Doctor :  
you need to take the test after 7-10 days after missing the periods
User :   so the test i took means nothing?
Doctor :  
then only the test will be correct
User :   why?
Doctor :  
because the hormones which is detected for pregnancy will be there only after 7-10 days of missed periods
User :   so the test today.... even though it said negative, it doesnt matter at all?
Doctor :   yes
User :   okay
Doctor :  
you repeat the test after 5 days for correct result
User :   after 5 days from today?
Doctor :   yes

User :   okay
