  • You're late- take any type of pregnancy test. If it's negative, wait a week & retest with a different test. If still negative, then make a Dr. appt.

  • Any time you have unprotected sex there's a chance. There's only one way to know for sure - take the test! It's best to do it in the morning when the concentration in your urine is higher.

  • Take any brand of pregnancy test. They sell pregnancy tests at the dollar store. And yes, you could be pregnant.

  • There is always a chance. Since you are already late any test (unless it is expired) should yield accurate results. Make sure you read the results in the time frame specified by the manufacturer. Best to use first urine of the morning.

  • The answer to "is there a chance I could be pregnant" is ALWAYS "yes" unless you don't have sex. ALWAYS "yes." ALWAYS.

    The ONLY time it can be no is if you don't have sex or don't have a uterus or your partner's testes were removed. In ALL other cases, there is ALWAYS a chance you could be pregnant.

    ALWAYS.

    We cannot answer the question "AM I pregnant?" For that, you need to take a pregnancy test. It does not have to be an EPT brand. It merely must be a pregnancy test. It is the ONLY way to know the answer to that second question.

    But the answer to your first question is always and forever YES.
