Sure, it's possible: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed.

Can?...yes: But not likely. If your cycles are long and or you ovulate early then yes. Most women ovulate b/w cycle day 14-16(days from start of period) it is unlikely that sperm will survive in vagina/uterus past 48 hours. But with natural family planning the wider the fertile window is considered the more successful. Remember only one sperm needs to make it, but it is unlikely.

Coincidence : Cycle length varies widely and is not very relevant. Cycle frequency is what matters. A regular pattern likely equals ovulation. Ovulation occurs 14 days before your next period.

Most : Most at-home pregnancy tests are fairly accurate a week after your missed period or 5-6 weeks after your last period. If you take them earlier than that, they may not be as accurate. Blood and urine pregnancy tests at a doctor's office can detect pregnancy a little earlier - the blood test can even detect pregnancy 7 days after ovulation (about a week before your period). I attached a link to a web site with more information on how pregnancy tests work and when to take them. Good luck!

Trust the test : Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection.

Be Patient: Sometimes anxiety in general or worrying about ones menstrual cycle can alter the timing. Try to be patient.
