Pregnancy test: Accuracy of pregnancy tests do not rely on when you had intercourse rather when the test is performed in relationship to your expected menstrual cycle. Blood pregnancy test can detect if pregnant several days before missing your cycle. Accuracy will increase at the time of missed menses.

A 19-year-old female asked:

Are there two types of pregnancy blood test? And what's the difference?

Yes: Both tests check to see whether the pregnancy hormone, known as HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is present. The qualitative HCG simply gives a result as to whether any HCG is present or not. The quantitative HCG test actually measures the level of the HCG in the blood. This can be helpful in diagnosis of abnormal pregnancies such as ectopic, molar, or miscarriage.

Maybe: Some doctors do a urine drug screen on all new OB patients. You may not be asked if you are going in for a confirmation pregnancy test. Drug use during pregnancy can adversely affect unborn children so doctors need to know this information.

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.

Not Medical: That term is not one used in medicine nor is it in any way explanatory. Perhaps you should ask this specific question of the professional who used it.
