Thanks for using just answer

When was your period due?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
17th April
Expert:  Anthony Osula replied 15 days ago.

Ok, its the 29th today so almost 2 weeks

I'll recommend doing another pregnancy test either today or tomorrow as you'll be 2 weeks after your period

otherwise it might be a UTI so worth doing a urine test for that also

Yes, still do another test and do a test to exclude UTI also
