Is it poss to be pregnant when your 8 days late

Patient : Is it poss to be pregnant when your 8 days late but getting a negative test result
Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for the query. Ideally speaking, if the urine pregnancy test done after 7 days post missed period turns to be negative then it is unlikely that the woman is pregnant. However, the confirmation can always be done with a more sensitive blood serum beta hCG test or an ultrasound pelvis itself to visibly rule out intrauterine pregnancy. Hope this helps you. Regards
