Your chances are pretty good - especially since you are on a 28-day cycle and were most probably ovulating at the time.

Wait till you actually miss a period before testing.

Yes, your chances are VERY GOOD.
and Anira is right. don't take a HPT until your period is late. You will just be wasting money....The HCG level (which makes the extra line) will not be present until you MISS your period.

Good luck either way,

Re: what are my chances of being preganct

Actually HCG startsbeing produced when implantation occurs. That occrs before the period is due in most cases that is why the periods stop during pregnancy(again in most cases). That is why some women can take pregnancy tests before their period is due and get a positive. I did that with my second period was still a couple of days away and I got a bright blue line within seconds.
So HCG is present before the period is missed. It is just waiting for one's period gives the body a chance for more HCG to be present.

sorry this is not true..HCG levels start forming after implantation 6-12 days after you ovulate, you can test positive 10 days after ovulation, I myself wait until 18 days after O that way I dont get a false negative

Actually - you can take an HPT test as early as 1 week after conception depending on how high your HCG levels are. You do NOT have to wait until your period has been missed.
