Hi Mullins505,

Most likely if the hospital test was positive, she might be pregnant.  She will need to see her OBGYN, to confirm if she is.

Hi Mullins505,

She will need to take a home pregnancy test or see a doctor to know if she is pregnant.  Other conditions like Endometriosis, Ovarian, cyst and many other can cause changes to a woman's cycle.

Hi Mullins505,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Depending what she went to the hospital for.  Most doctors and hospital perform a urine test, to check for pregnancy and any sign of Infection in the urine.  She will need to see a doctor, to know if indeed she is pregnant.  Anytime you have unprotected sex, your chances of pregnancy are higher.  If she is pregnant, the options on not keeping the baby is something she will have to decide herself and speak to her doctor about.
