Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. The urine pregnancy test is usually done around 1 week after the missed periods.

However, a more sensitive version “AIMSTRIP” pregnancy test is available which can detect the same before the missed periods. Another option is the serum beta HCG test which is also a much more sensitive test.

I'll suggest doing these tests before drawing a conclusion that you're not having pregnancy. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
