  • No it won't effect the test. Take another test in the morning. If it's negative call the dr to see why you haven't started your period. He/she might give you something so you will start.

  • Intercourse won't affect your pregnancy test. Like the other poster said, make sure you take the test with the first urine of the morning. That is when it will be the most accurate.

  • It may be that you are going to skip this month. It doesn't happen to a lot of woman but there are so many factors that can make you not flow...but follow up with dr. for your concerns.

  • Thanks for the help. Ppl are telling me to also take a blood test. What's the difference if I take a blood test or urine

  • Blood tests test the amount of HCG in the blood and can tell you that you are pregnant with much less HCG in your system than that of a HPT.

    It's rare but some women do have a condition where the HCG never secretes into the urine or it doesn't happen until well into the 2nd or even the 3rd trimester. This could be your issue or you may just have a hormonal imbalance.

    If you are not pregnant and you have a hormonal imbalance then the doctor can give you something called Provera to start your period.

  • After the recommended time frame the test becomes invalid. It would depend how long you left it. if it's still within the manufacturer's time frame you could very well be pregnant.

  • You do NOT count the results after the 10 minute time frame. The test is considered invalid after that time frame.

    I think it's time to see your doctor.

  • Go and get a blood test. Really they are so much more effective.

  • take another test in the morning. If it comes out negative again, then see your doctor. Maybe you haven't produced enough hcg. your doctor will do a blood test and with that you'll know if you are.!
