How soon after sex can i take a pregnancy test?

Hey ladies,

I would like to know how soon after unprotected sex can i go and get a pregnancy test.... i know the exact night it happened, but im not sure how long it will take to show up on a test, i really dont want to wait for my period, the suspense is killing me. Can i get tested before my missed period (if i do miss it)?

There are a few hpt that you can use a few days before your period, but keep in mind that for some women, it may take 1-2 weeks after being late to get a postive result

Re: How soon after sex can i take a pregnancy test?

I have 5 kids and I know the days I got pregnant with the last 3. And the strange thing is, I tested your question with those 3 by taking pg tests everyday starting 3 days after having sex until I got a positive test. With all 3 of those kids it was exactly 11 days after having sex that it actually showed up on the test. I thought that was amazing. My cousin just recently tested this theory of 11 days with her pregnancy, hers turned out to be 9 days. I suppose everyone is different, but there's a ballpark range for you. I hope you get the answer you want!
