Possible: This may be accurate. Not every sexual encounter (without contraception/protection) will result in a pregnancy. If you have doubts, repeat the test. Did you miss your period?

A 30-year-old female asked:

Is a urine pregnancy test accurate two weeks after sex?

If positive: You should do the test after a missed period. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex.
