Welcome to ehealthforum

If you had unprotected intercourse then possibility of pregnancy is there.The HPT many times does not give accurate results as hormone HCG is not detectable in urine.
Repeat the test or get a Blood HCG test done as it is an accurate test.
Consider visiting a Gynaecologist for examination so that she can look for signs and symptoms suggestive of pregnancy.

Take Care!
