Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

Relax as Urine test takes 2 to 3 weeks to give results and it is too early to take the test. The testing kits are callibrated ones and give results only after a certain amount of hormone level is achieved. If you had regular unprotected intercourse then conception chances are high.

Wait for a week and then get a Blood hcg test done for pregnancy determination. Avoid tobacco use and have healthy balanced diet. Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation. Take adequate rest and avoid any strenous activity.

Take care!
