I had sex last week and am a week late

Patient: I had sex last week and am a week late for my period I took a pregnancy test and it was negative but I didn’t wait the 14 days after sex is my test still accurate?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.There are fewer chances of the test to be accurate. There could be a possibility of del ayed ovulation causing pregnancy test to be false negative. You may repeat the test after a week in case your cycles do not resume.Hope this helped.Regards
