Hi,
Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out.

If you had sexual intercourse , the possibility of pregnancy is always there.

Although, the urine for pregnancy test is negative, I’ll still suggest getting the serum pregnancy test done.

The serum beta HCG test is a much more sensitive test compared to the urine test. An ultrasound of the uterus can also be done for confirming the presence of a gestation sac.

If these tests are negative, then pregnancy is virtually ruled out. I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
