Am i pregnant can i take a pregnancy

Patient: My last period was sept 23 had unprotected sex October 5 and haven’t had a period in October it is November 2 can I take a pregnancy test

Doctor: Hello, thanks for contacting askthedoctor.comIf you have missed your periods already by more than a week then it is always wise to rule out pregnancy first by a urine pregnancy test before various other causes of amenorrhoea can be considered. if the test is negative then you can be given a withdrawal bleed with progesterones for resuming your menses.I hope i have answered your query in detail,wishing you good health,regards
