Hello, my name is Dr Stan, I am US trained, Board Certified with 30 years of patient experience. Please allow me a moment to review your question.
I'm sorry you are concerned about a possible pregnancy. Please tell me the date of the first day of your last period. Do you use any form of birth control? When did you have unprotected intercourse?
Good morning. I can better help you after you respond to my questions.
So, if your last period started about October 20th, you would have ovulated between Oct 29 and Nov 3. It usually takes 10 days after a missed period for a home pregnancy test to be positive. May I suggest you repeat the pregnancy test in another 5-7 days to get an accurate result. Stress can change the timing of your period and a "cold" may also cause a hormonal change. Please repeat your test and then you will know for sure if you are or are not pregnant.
Yes, the HcG blood test is more accurate than the home urine tests. Are you trying to get pregnant?
Take the blood test. If positive, then termination at this time is achievable with medication, if that is your choice.
Probably very low, maybe 1/200 since you took the tests more than 10 days after missing your period. Take the blood test to be certain, but again, your chance of pregnancy is very low.
