Hi, I think the test should have been negative by now. Go for a menstrual blood for AFB within 12 hours of your periods. If positive consult your doctor. If negative you can try for pregnancy. You can take some medicines like clomiphene for the growth of your follicles and track your follicles growth by repeated ultrasound and when your follicles is more than 17 to 18 mm, take injection for rupturing the follicles. Be in contact with your husband for 2 to 3 days after injection. Take progesterone for next 2 weeks. Do a urine pregnancy test at home after that. You can try like that for 3 to 6 months. Hope I have answered your question.
