If you had unprotected intercourse then possibility of pregnancy can be suspected.Urine test usually takes 10 days after a missed period to give results as it detects the hormone levels in the body which are quite less initially and may take time.
If you suspect to be pregnant get a blood hcg test done for pregnancy determination.It is a confirmatory test and gives results after a week of the missed period.If you are detetcted to be pregnant then termination can be done under Medical Supervision by medciations during early pregnancy.
You need to confirm the pregnancy first and then visit a Gynaecologist so that you are guided accordingly.
