Takes 6-12 days: Yes, it takes 6-12 days for the test to become positive. She should wait at least one week after intercourse before doing a pregnancy test. If it is still negative after 2 weeks, you can rest assured she is not pregnant from any sexual encounter from at least 2 weeks prior.

Is it possible to take a pregnancy blood test to soon and still get a negative result?

Yes: Blood tests can be done soon after conception (8-9 days after). It's best to wait until after your first missed period to test with he urine pregnancy tests. Be sure to accurately follow the directions to get a valid result. Other causes of false negative tests are not using first urine of the morning and drinking too much water before testing. Hope this helps.
