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 If 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
