hello,
you can repeat the test after 1 to 2 weeks. if it comes negative then there is less chance of pragnancy . there are other causes of delayed period also. so wait for another week
take care

Hi rani;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If the pregnancy test is negative then what your doctor has given are tablets for withdrawal bleeding which are to be taken for 5 days and after the effect of the tablets wear off then you will get periods.As far as the time to confirm pregnancy it can be confirmed in 2-3 days after you miss the date only in few cases it can be confirmed as late as 1 week so if you still are not sure then you can repeat 1 week after your expected date and preferable with morning sample of urine.What i would suggest is if the pregnancy test is negative you can start on with the tablets as advised by your doctor.
Thanks

Hi!. I am 30 years old and has been taking metformin and folic acid as prescribed by my OB-gyne. I experienced what they call ectopic pregnancy last july when i was in my 7 weeks already but during TVS nothing was found in my uterus and my left fallopian has been hurting bad and swelling during the ultrasound.i was given Methotrexate shot once and my cycle continued to be normal for only 2 months. Last October i missed my period and so 10days after which was yesterday i took a pregnancy test, it turned a faint positive result when i took it in the morning after breakfast and taking folic acid. But in the afternoon i had 2 test again and both appeared negative. This morning right after waking up i also took another test and it s negative. I am confused as to wether i am really pregnant now or not. Pls help..

My last period was on the 10 th of august and went till the 18th. Me and my partner had sex on the 21st of this month, but he just rubbed on my clitoris and a little cum came out. My next period was due on the 6th but it didn't come. Since then I have done 4 pregnancy tests all negative. I went to the doctor but he said to wait another 1 to 2 weeks. I have all the symptoms of being pregnant. So could I be pregnant?

I had sex on the 5th of April without any kind of protection. Im not sure if im pregnant and we hadn't had any sexual intercourse untill yesterday. But when we tried it i felt like my boyfriend was hitting the back of my vagina, it caused alot of pain. Im not sure what it was. I have had 2 d&c and Im not sure what the process is called but three years ago while i was delivering my placenta my uterus turned inside out and I had to get it fixed.
