  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    You can do a pregnancy test with a highly sensitive pregnancy kit. The more sensitive tests may be able to detect low levels of hCG, as early as four days before your period is due, or seven days after conception.
    The sensitivity of a pregnancy test is described on the packaging as mIU/ml (milli-International Unit per milliliter). Pregnancy tests range in sensitivity from 10mIU/ml to 40 mlU/ml. The lower the number, the more sensitive the test, and the earlier it can detect pregnancy.
    If it still comes negative, wait for another week and do re-test. Sometimes delayed periods are result of anxiousness and stress.
