Hi there...urine pregnancy test usually becomes positive 1 week after implantation of the foetus. Sometimes it can upto to 10-15 days to become positive. Sometimes it can false negative also. So repeat the test after 5 days . Also there are many other causes also for missed menstrual cycles like pcod, fibromas, stress, drug intake. So you van repeat the test after 5 days and then consult a obstetrician for further evaluation.
