How Soon Can I Take a Pregnancy Test After Having Sex?

546 people found this helpful - 186 Comments

Are you tired of waiting around to find out whether you are going to see a BFP (Big Fat Positive) on a pregnancy test? If so, you are not the only one.

Note, since you can only conceive after ovulation, you need to know how soon can you use a pregnancy test after possible conception, rather than how soon after sex.

The time between ovulation and when you are set to have your next period can be absolutely torturous. But do you have to wait until you miss your period to take a test?

How soon can you take a pregnancy test?

Fortunately, you no longer have to wait until you miss your period to take a pregnancy test and possibly receive accurate results.

There are many pregnancy tests on the market today that allow you to test up to six days before your period is due. However, most tests are accurate about two weeks after possible conception.

Note, possible conception could be anytime between about one and five days after sex, depending on when you had sex in your fertile window in relation to ovulation. This is because sperm can live in the female reproductive tract for up to five days and the egg can survive for about 12-24 hours after ovulation.

How pregnancy tests work

Home pregnancy tests work in the same way, but some are designed to be more sensitive than others.

Pregnancy tests work by measuring the level of hCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) in your urine.

The sensitivity of the test will be listed on the package and you can tell in two ways. First, the more sensitive tests claim to detect pregnancy earlier than those that are less sensitive.

Another way to tell is by checking the mIU/ml (milli-International Unit per millilitre) hCG sensitivity. Tests range from 10mIU/ml of hCG to 40 mlU/ml of hCG. The lower the number, the more sensitive the test.

What happens if an early pregnancy test is negative?

Every person and pregnancy is different. If a pregnancy test advertises that it can reveal a pregnancy at a certain number of days before a missed period, this is because most pregnant women will have the amount of hCG in their urine that the test can detect at that point.

It does not necessarily mean that you will have the same amount of hCG in your urine at that point. So, if you have been trying to conceive and think you may be pregnant, keep testing.

Pregnancy test

Some women (about 1 in 10) may have a low level of hCG in their urine at the time of a missed period, so if you miss your period and are still testing negative, wait three days and test again.

If you still test negative and think you may be pregnant because you have other signs of pregnancy, visit your doctor for a blood test. A blood pregnancy test is more sensitive than an over-the-counter home pregnancy test and should be able to accurately determine whether you are pregnant.

Is it possible to get a false positive?

Although some may tell you that a false positive is not possible, it can happen. Rest assured however, that the probability of a false positive is very low.

If you get that BFP (big fast positive) and are not entirely convinced, feel free to test again in a day or two. Most pregnancy tests are sold in multiples, so you may already have another one on hand. If your first result was, in fact, a false positive, you will probably not get the same result a second time.

Since pregnancy tests these days are so much more sensitive than ever before, they may be able to pick up on what is called a chemical pregnancy. This occurs when the pregnancy is lost shortly after implantation. In the past, most of these pregnancies would go undetected because they were lost before a woman could even test for pregnancy.

It is always a good idea to confirm a positive result with a blood test at your doctor's office.

    My period is 2 days late.. when can I test?
    1. Sarah (OC Team): Hi Keisha, wait three days after a missed period and test again. So you can test again tomorrow. - (Jul 19, 2016)
    2. Kate: Hi, I ovulated on the 15th, since then I have been eating heavily, my breasts are not hurting me but I have been sleeping lately and my cervix is very thick, I took a test yesterday 26th it was negative could it be am pregnant? - (Jul 27, 2016)

    5. Christina (OC Team): The pink discharge could be from implantation, and if you had sex in your fertile window, there is a chance you are pregnant. Good luck!! - (Sep 27, 2016)

    7. Christina (OC Team): It's really difficult to say. Some women experience back pain during pregnancy, but this usually comes later. If the stomach pain feels like cramping, it could be from implantation. Only a test can tell you if you're pregnant. Good luck! - (Sep 27, 2016)

    You can have ur period and be pregnant!
    1. Lia: Yes you can. When I was pregnant with my first child it was completely missed due to the fact that I cycled for three months after she was concieved. However I did experience all of the normal pregnancy symptoms which prompted a visit to the doctor. This pregnancy was complicated right put the gate. If you're cycling but believe you may be pregnant go see your doctor. My first child is a miracle baby. Getting medical attention early saved us both. Good luck! - (Sep 02, 2016)

    Hi, I had my period on the 20th of July, which lasted for 4 days. I had unprotected sex on the last day of my flow which was Sunday. I started ovulating 28th, and since then I've been having some changes in my stomach, a little increase in appetite. I feel like poking but when I get to the toilet, it'll disappear. Now today, the 12th of August, I saw a lightly drop of blood but not as much as my menstration flow. Can I be pregnant?
    1. Christina (OC Team): The best way to find out is to test. If you just entered your fertile window on the 28th, I'd recommend testing on the 16th. If you ovulated on the 28th, you can test now.

    I had my period on the 8th of August 2016. Using the ovulation calculator, my fertile window should begin on the 20th of August. Hubby has a relatively low sperm count of 13m but good mobility. Is there any hope I can conceive if I have sex during my fertile window?
    1. Christina (OC Team): It only takes one strong swimmer to fertilize an egg, so there's hope. With that said, low sperm count does make conception more of a challenge.

    Hi, you told me yesterday to test, but it turned out negative and have not received my periods. My breasts feel heavy but are not hurting. I have too much pain in the lower abdomen and in my back. Could I be pregnant?
    1. Christina (OC Team): Hi Olivia, The calculator prompts you to test two weeks after ovulation. If it is negative and you still have not gotten your period, wait a few days and test again. If you still are seeing negative results a week or more after your period was due (and you are sure of your cycle dates), you may want to make an appointment with your doctor for an evaluation, which may include a more sensitive pregnancy test. Good luck! - (Aug 15, 2016)

    Hi, my period came on on the 6th of this month, and I ovulated on the 13-18. I had sex on the 13,16,18. I feel funny and I feel really tired. I'm sleeping all the time and my breast feels funny also. Could I be pregnant?
    1. Christina (OC Team): Have a look at this article about the early signs of pregnancy. https://www.ovulationcalculator.com/early-signs-pregnancy/ Then you can test on the 1st to find out for sure. Good luck! - (Aug 23, 2016)

    I have a 25 day cycle and had my period on the 22nd of July. I followed up the days of ovulation and had some signs of pregnancy. I added a missed period because it was supposed to come on the16th of August. I tested negative on the 23rd of August, then to my surprise, my period came on the 26th of August after ten days of missing my period. Please help me. Now it's difficult to know when to calculate ovulation. Please help, help, help.
    1. Christina (OC Team): It can be difficult to track ovulation with an irregular period. Try using an OPK for this cycle if you aren't already. - (Aug 31, 2016)

    My last period was July 12th. My fertile window was from August 17-22. I had sex August 9th, 14th, 19th, 21st and 28th. According to the ovulation calculator, I was supposed to get a period August 9-14th, but I didn't. July was my first period after giving birth to my son in November, 2015. Could I be pregnant? I took a test Monday and it was negative? Is it to soon to test? I've been feeling crampy, nauseated, sleepy, irritated and have had breast tenderness. Should I see my doctor and ask for a blood test?
    1. Christina (OC Team): I'd suggest waiting a few days and testing again if your period doesn't show. If this is your first period since giving birth, your cycles could be a bit off from what you're expecting. - (Sep 01, 2016)

    It's my first time here. I have been trying to conceive for the past two months. I ovulated on the 29th and I had sex on the 28th the prior to my ovulation. For some reason, yesterday for the whole day, my lower abdomen was gurgling and wouldn't stop. That is the first time I ever felt something like that. Could this be an early sign of pregnancy or could it be something else? It wasn't my stomach gurgling. It was coming from my uterus.
    1. Christina (OC Team): I'm not aware of gurgling as a sign, but you may want to have a look at this article for more info about the signs of implantation. https://www.ovulationcalculator.com/implantation-bleeding-or-period-quiz/ You can test at 14DPO if AF doesn't show.

    Will I get pregnant if my partner pull outs before he ejaculates? Actually, he pulls out after 5 seconds of insertion because we are really avoiding pregnancy.

    Hi, I was due AF on the 1st of September. I ovulated on the 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th of August. I was most fertile between the 15th and 17th. We had sex on the 15th, 16th and 17th. I'm now 6 days late (7 tomorrow). I am showing signs: sore boobs, headaches, back pain and a soft pain in my right side/hips. I've taken 3 pregnancy tests and all were negative. My cycle is 28 days and is never late apart from when we are pregnant. Sadly, this year in May, we lost our boy at 26 weeks. He was born asleep. But my cycle came back to normal straight away. Any information as to what to do or how much longer I need to wait and test again. Thank you.
    1. Christina (OC Team): I'm so sorry for your loss. The best thing you can do to increase your odds is to track and be sure of ovulation, so you can have sex at that time.

I've noticed tender breasts, lots of acne (that I don't even get when experiencing period symptoms), nausea and slight abdominal cramps. Today, Sept 7th, I'm noticing slight spotting a week before my period is due. Just curious and seeking advice. I do have "PCOS," but I have a regular 32-day cycle. I've been more irritable than normal and have had slight food cravings along with nausea, cramps, breast tenderness, and acne. Thanks in advance for your advice.

    As of today, I am 7 days late. Took a hpt yesterday and it was negative. No signs of my period but lots of early pregnancy symptoms. My doc told me that its "too early" to tell and to wait 2 weeks; if still no period then he would do an HCG blood. This. Is. INFURIATING. Why would it be too early for me to tell when this site and others are filled with women who have found out much earlier? I am very discouraged. And nervous at this point.

    Hey, I had unprotected sex on day 24 of my cycle, but I have no idea how long or short my cycles are. I got what I believe was my period a week later (although it was fairly light). It started out brown, then went red after a few days, but not much at all. I've been under a lot of stress lately. I went to the doctor 10 days later and they said they'd be able to pick up on a urine test faintly at that point (which I thought to be odd). Anyway, I've taken another today and it's still negative. This is only 16 days after intercourse. Thank you!

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but would it impact a week before my period? I suffer from anxiety, so I keep thinking I'm seeing symptoms, but really it's way to early for that. I'm in no way prepared for this. I took another test today, which was negative. I know it sounds silly but taking them on a day I'm anxious helps me for the day, regardless of if I know I'll get a negative
    1. Christina (OC Team): I'm not sure I understand your question, but I can tell you that most women ovulate around 15 days before their next period. I know you mentioned that you tested 16 days after having sex. Assuming you ovulated when you had sex (which we have no way of knowing), a pregnancy test at 16 days should be accurate. I'd suggest testing again in a few days. If the test is negative then and the last time you had unprotected sex was 21+ days ago, it is more likely that your missed period was due to stress. - (Sep 19, 2016)

    2. Agomez: How soon can i take a home pregnancy test? On tuesday September 27th will be two weeks since mirena removal and intercourse. - (Sep 25, 2016)
    3. Christina (OC Team): If you don't know when you ovulated, I'd suggest waiting until the 2nd. Of course, it doesn't hurt to test any time, so you can test earlier if you want. Just be prepared to take another test if it's negative because it may be too early. - (Sep 26, 2016)
    4. Agomez: OK, I will test on the 2nd of october!! I have very, very tender breasts for 3 days already. Today, my lower back aches. Are these signs of pregnancy or period? - (Sep 26, 2016)

    7. Christina (OC Team): Depending on where you are in your cycle, spotting could be from ovulation, implantation or the start of your period. If you think you're pregnant, take a test. - (Sep 28, 2016)

    hi. Please, I need your advice. I started my last period on the 1st of September, 2016 (25 days cycle), which lasted for four days. I had unprotected sex three days after the start of my fertile window. That's the 11th of September according to ovulation calculator. I'm due tomorrow (26th), but I have been having abdominal cramps alongside constipation few days, but no breast pain whatsoever. Please, could it be the normal menstrual stuff or pregnancy symptoms? Thanks for the quick response.
    1. Christina (OC Team): Hi! Early pregnancy symptoms are often similar to menstruation symptoms, so it can be very difficult to tell. The good news is that you can test soon. Good luck! - (Sep 25, 2016)
    2. Opeyemi: Please, when can I test? The ovulation calendar notified me of testing today. Is it ok? - (Sep 25, 2016)
    3. Christina (OC Team): Yes, if you ovulated on the 11th, today is a good day to test. Good luck! - (Sep 26, 2016)

    1. Christina (OC Team): You can test 12-14 days after ovulation. If you don't know when you ovulated, test the day after your missed period. Good luck! - (Sep 26, 2016)

    I found this Ovulation Calculator very helpful! I did keep track of my ovulation. We've been trying for 5 months and on the 5th month I decided to try this website out. I guess it's pretty accurate! I tested quite early. If I have my calculations right, I'm almost 4 weeks along. I tested when I was 3 weeks, 3 days along. I didn't think it was possible for a test to read that early. With my first, I waited until a week after my missed period to test. With this one, it's 6 days before my missed period. I took 3 tests with this one just to make sure. All 3 are positive! I've decided we can officially say I'm pregnant. Haha. I just haven't had that many symptoms. Just bloating and cravings up the wall. I figured that's just because it's still super early in the pregnancy to get very many symptoms.
    1. Christina (OC Team): Congratulations!! Early detection tests can be very helpful! :) - (Sep 27, 2016)

    Why I think I might be pregnant is because I had unprotected sex three days (11/9/2016 after I ovulated(9/92016) according to the ovulation calculator.
    1. Christina (OC Team): Your fertile window includes the six days leading up to and including ovulation. In order to have a chance, you would have to have had sex before ovulation. And if you have your period, it's unlikely that you're pregnant. If you think you may be, it's okay to test. Some women do report period-like bleeding during pregnancy. Good luck! - (Oct 01, 2016)

    My ovulation calculator says 2nd Oct will be good for a pregnancy test because I had sex during my fertile days. To my surprise, I saw my period on the 1st of Oct. My September period was on the 7th. What could be the challenge? Do I need to stay away from sex after the fertile period, like someone suggested?
    1. Christina (OC Team): Is it possible that you have 24-day cycles normally? How long have you been tracking your periods? If your period was truly early, it could just be an off cycle. - (Oct 02, 2016)

    I had protected sex at the beginning of August. I had light bleeding/discharge at the end of August. I had a blood test done 12 days after sex. It came back negative. I had some bleeding resembling a period in September. I've taken several pregnancy tests, all negative. I'm feeling a few symptoms such as nasuea. Am I in the clear?
    1. Christina (OC Team): If the last time you've had sex was in August, you've had a period, and you are still getting negative results on pregnancy tests in October, it's highly unlikely that you're pregnant. If you think you are, you can see your doctor for another test. - (Oct 03, 2016)

    I had a spot or two of blood yesterday on toilet paper after sharp pains in my abdomen. I've been feeling cramps and bloatedness for days, and now I'm constipated. According to OC, I ovulated on the 29th (did not use an OPK to confirm) but my normal app I use to teach my periods said the 28th. Either way, I'm 6-7dpo today. Period is due either Oct 14 or Oct 12 (different dates from here and my app, Pink Pad). What is the earliest I could test and hope for a possible positive? Do my symptoms sound like it's possible?

    Hi, I'm on a 31-day cycle. My period started on the 13th of September and went for about four days. The ovulation calculator says my fertile period should be around 27th of September to the 2nd of October. So my hubby and I baby danced on 23rd, 25th, 28th, 29th and 1st of October. My period should be due on Friday 14th of October, but on Sunday the 9th of October, I started having breast tenderness. This morning, I tested and it was showing two lines but one was faint. Does it mean I'm pregnant? And does the faint line mean that the level of hcg in my urine is quite small? Thanks

    I used a first response ovulation test after my period (started on October 16) was over (on october 22). I did exactly as the instructions said.
    All tests was negative. I had sex on october 23 then on october 26 and today october 27. I checked my cervical fluids all week, and that was egg white jelly discharge. Also, I checked my cervix and I guess it was open and soft. My periods always are regular. How do i know if I ovulated this time?
    Its possible to ovulate and test will not show that?

And I've been exhausted since Oct. 19. My breasts have started hurting in the last two days. I am also having lower back pain and headaches. I am also struggling to sleep and to get comfortable. I have had nausea constantly since the 24th. I am supposed to start my period Nov. 1. Am I pregnant? I've been trying with my boyfriend since June. We don't want to get hopes up just to be crushed, so all help is welcome! Thanks
    1. Christina (OC Team): It sounds like a possibility but only a test can confirm. Try not to stress over it and I'd suggest waiting until after you miss your period to test to avoid the likelihood of a false negative. Good luck! - (Oct 28, 2016)

    Me and my husband had sex the 15th,16th,21st and 26th. I was suppose to get my period on the 26th and it never came, but I've had brown (old blood maybe?) spotting since the 24th! We took a cheaper at home test and it showed negative. When do you suggest taking another test? Or am I for sure not pregnant?
    1. Christina (OC Team): It's still early enough that you can test again. It may also have been an irregular cycle. Good luck! - (Oct 28, 2016)
    2. Amber: What is the spotting from? I have never had this before, before my period! - (Oct 28, 2016)
    3. Christina (OC Team): Spotting could be a sign of implantation. Have a look at this https://www.ovulationcalculator.com/implantation-bleeding-or-period-quiz/ - (Oct 28, 2016)
    4. Amber: Thanks! Very informative! When do you suggest taking another test? Last test was taken 10/27 and last time we had sex was 10/26! - (Oct 28, 2016)
    5. Christina (OC Team): It's up to you, really. You can test over the weekend or early next week. - (Oct 29, 2016)

    Hello. I had my menstruation on the 3rd of Oct. I had sex on the 26th of Oct. Now, I'm having a little stomach ache, and I'm also having my mensuration again on the 29th, which is not suppose to be. Am I pregnant or is it just an irregular mensuration?
    1. Christina (OC Team): If you are getting your period three days after the only time you had sex in your cycle, it is unlikely that you're pregnant. If you're trying to conceive, I'd suggest tracking ovulation and having sex in your fertile window. - (Oct 29, 2016)

    OK, I spotted light pink on sept 30th, no period blood in cramps, I just had mild cramps a week after yet still no period. Oct 29th, I spotted pink again. My pad doesn't get full like a period, it's just light red to a pink color with no cramps. I had a falopian ring ligation in 2012. What could this mean? Any advice will help. Thank you.

    Hi. I had my period 6th -9th Oct, I ovulated the 19th (I track my cycle I have a 28day cycle) according to this app another app o used before this showed the 20th as the date of ovulation. I felt the symptoms of ovulation on the 19th and had a little cramps on the 20th. I had sex the 14th, 19th and 20th. Since the 20th I have been having mild cramping and backaches, nausea (a couple of times vomiting) extremely tired all the time and a few headaches. My CM has been creamy white until this afternoon. I feel dry all of a sudden. My period is due on the 3rd Nov - I was sure I was feeling the affects of pregnancy but now I don't know. I feel so low and negative now
    1. Katarzyna: Your body can react like that to the pregnancy, especially if this your first time. Test after you miss your period. good luck hun. - (Oct 31, 2016)

    Can anyone help? I ovulated on the 18th Sep from that day I had cramps lower in my abdomen. I'm 2 days away from testing and for my period to come' I tested a few days ago and it was all negative. Could I still possibly be pregnant?
    1. Christina (OC Team): Cramps can be a symptom of ovulation. It's possible that you're pregnant. Wait a few days and test again. Good luck! - (Oct 30, 2016)
    2. Demi: Thank you for your reply. Could I test today even though my test date isn't until tomorrow? - (Oct 31, 2016)
    3. Christina (OC Team): You can test whenever and as frequently as you'd like. However, there's a greater chance of a false negative the earlier you test. Good luck! - (Oct 31, 2016)

    Hi! I had my period twice in Sept about 7 days apart. In October, I did not get my period at all. I'd get cramps and back pains, though. I took a test and it was negative. The last time I had sex was October 15th. I'm still having cramps and back pains. Any suggestions? I called and made apt, but unfortunately, they can't get me in till December 15.
    1. Katarzyna: Repeat test twice. Do it now and i couple days after. If it's still negative and there's no period or any other concerns, call your clinic and tell them that you had positive test, but you start bleeding and you are extremely worried. They should squeeze you earleir than December. Worst case, change your ob/gyn. Good luck, hun. - (Nov 01, 2016)

    Hi, I took out my IUD 2 months ago and now were trying for a baby. My fertility window was from the 24th-30th with an ovulation day of the 29th of October 2016. We practiced all those days and especially on the 29th. Will it be hard for me to get pregnant if I had the IUD for 7 years all together? And how early can I take a test?

    Hi. My period was expected on 11/7/2016. I had unprotected sex on 11/9/2016. This is two or three days after my period was already late and I've been feeling dizzy and nauseous for a few weeks. I took a pregnancy test that is supposed to be accurate 5 days before the expected date of my period, and I took it 2 days after my period. The test says NO. But is this an accurate answer if I had sex two days ago? If you have sex after your period is already late, how many days after sex the test will show results? Thank you.
    1. Christina (OC Team): In order to get pregnant, you have to be in your fertile window. It is unlikely that you would have been in your fertile window two days after your period was due. I'd suggest tracking future cycles. You can use your Ovulation Calculator calendar. Good luck! - (Nov 11, 2016)

    Hi. My expected period was supposed to be November 10th and still nothing. I started my period last month on 10/13 and finished on 10/16. The month before that I was supposed to start on Tuesday 9/13 and ended up starting two days later on 9/15. My periods are normal. I've never missed a period. But this month I have yet to have one. I had sex the first two days of my fertile window skipped a day and then had sex again. Didn't have sex again till after my ovulation day. And then I had sex the following week, 5 days in row before my expected period. The app said for me to take a test on the 9th but I didn't because, hello, I was expected to start my period the next day. I didn't start, so I ended up going to the store and buying a test. I took the test late in the evening and it was negative. When should I take another test? Could I be pregnant? Thanks.

    Hi. Last month, I took a home test and it had a very faint line. So, I took a digital one later that day and it came back positive too. About a few days later, I went to the local health department and those too had faint lines. However, a week or so later, I had light bleeding that turned into heavy bleeding and went to the ER. They did both a blood and urine test. The ER doctor told me I was never pregnant. So I took one a few days later and it too was negative. This made me feel crazy. What exactly happened?

    My issue is that I took an hcg blood pregnancy test when I was a day late and it was negative. I have headaches all the time, tired and sometimes I can't keep my eyes open. I'm also eating much more. About a week ago, I experienced dizziness in the morning and pinching sensations for a couple of weeks. My breasts were tender then itchy. My doctor prescibed Provera (not sure if I got the name or spelling right) to force a period but I feel different. I need some advice. I don't want to take it and would rather wait.

I've been experiencing cramps before we had sex until now. I am worried because I'm expecting my period within this week, but it's already Friday (and the third day after we had sex). Could it be possible that I'm pregnant? But my boyfriend said that he didn't cum inside me, and I felt nothing inside me too.
