Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Though the timing indicates a low chance but a possibility exists, Get a pregnancy test done to be sure. A blood HCG is a more accurate test , if positive then an obstetric ultrasound to confirm a gestational sac would be needed.

wishing you best of health
