Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been sexually active without additional protection after your last normal periods, chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. Lighter periods and pink spotting could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Urine pregnancy test kits usually start showing positive results after about 20 days post-conception (roughly corresponding to about a week after your missed periods). The urine pregnancy tests (UPT) kits are calibrated ones and show positive result only if the hormonal levels of HCG reach a certain level, and hence are not reliable during early pregnancy (some women can keep getting false negative results throughout pregnancy). Blood HCG level estimation is accurate. If the periods are abnormal, or if you suspect to be pregnant, or if you develop any other new symptoms, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist/obstetrician and report any unusual/abnormal/new symptoms immediately.
Take care.
