Hallow Dear,

Home pregnancy test on urine is reliable when performed about a week after the missed period. On day 25 of the cycle, it will not give reliable result. Since your last menstruation was on 15th of November, you should perform the pregnancy test on overnight morning first urine sample any day after the 22nd November. This test gives the result instantly.

If you want to know the pregnancy status earlier, you can opt for Beta hCG test. This test gives reliable results 10 days after the conception; i.e. 10 days after the unprotected sex. You have not mentioned when did you have your last unprotected sex. You may perform this test 10 days after the last unprotected sex. You can get the results of this test from the laboratory, generally on the next day.

Urinary tract infection may change the milliu internii of the semen and may affect the quality of the sperms; hence may cause problem in conception. Please get your husband's urinary infection treated first before attempting for pregnancy.

I hope this helps you to resolve your dilemma.
