Yes definitely: most home pregnancy tests carry a high enough sensitivity to become positive within 4-7 days after conception. If you were near ovulation time when you had intercourse, you can bet that's when you conceived

A Week later?: No, chances are you were already pregnant when you had (unprotected) sex on Sept 2nd It also sounds like you are having unprotected sex with multiple contacts. NOT WISE AT ALL! Suggest you get some counseling. Good luck Dr Z
