Thanks for your query.

Chances you getting pregnancy are less but the possibility still exists.

You have to wait for a week after missed periods to get urine pregnancy test done and get positive test result.

since you are supposed to get periods today, I suggest you wait for one week and do urine pregnancy test at home.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.

sometimes pre-ejaculate fluid can contain spermatozoa, so the chance of pregnancy cannot be completely ruled out,
so you can go for blood test for pregnancy now or wait for one more week and go for urine test for pregnancy,
depending on the result further management can be planned.
take care.
