Plz help me


A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
Minor variations in menstrual cycles can be seen frequently and usually menstrual cycle with length of 21 days to 35 days should be considered as normal only.
But as you are not using any contraceptive measures the possibility of pregnancy cannot be completely ruled out.
In case of previous regular menstrual cycles, usually urine pregnancy test kit can give accurate result after one week of expected date of periods.
So, to come to one conclusion regarding the possibility of pregnancy, better to choose blood test for pregnancy or ultrasound, which can give more accurate results compared with urine test.

Take care
