Pregnancy doubt after safe intercourse.

Hello Doctor, Can you tell me when to do pregnancy test. I had sex on 27 Feb with safety. But from then I am not feeling well. I have tested for pregnancy but the test came out to be negative. I have pregnancy doubt. What should I do? My period date is 18. Please help.

  1. Hello.
    Thanks for the query.
    The earliest you can learn about pregnancy after sex would be after 7 days post last intercourse with a serum beta HCG test which is a blood test and not a urine test. If the HCG levels are less than 3mIU then you are surely not pregnant.
    Urine pregnancy test is sensitive only after 8 days post missed periods.
