Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Based on your last menstrual period, you would be approximately 4 weeks pregnant.As you correctly stated, it is early though they are some pregnancy tests that can detect very low levels of HCG- the hormone present in the urine.
If you used one of these early detection kits, then it is likely to be accurate.

At present , based on the medical studies available , there is no evidence of teratogenicity (side effects to the baby) attached to the use of levonelle.

Hope this is helpful to you, feel free to ask any other questions
