Are pregnancy tests accurate
I got a reply from you to my first question and wish to thank you. Could i be pregnant even if pregnancy test turned out to be negative. I got my period the past two months, but my period was very light, it was unecessary for me to wear sanitary towels. Is there a possibilty that i could be pregnant even if penetration was not complete. THank you.

It is possible to be pregnant even if penetration was not complete. If you have always had regular periods and now have very light ones, then pregnancy should be excluded. The blood test is more accurate than the urine one, so you should probably have this done.
