Would a pregnancy test 8 days after sexual encounter and 8-9 days before expected period be positive?

HPT are accurate about a week after a missed period. Before that, enough hCG hormone may not be present to indicate a positive. You'll have to wait until after you've missed your period to see if you are pregnant.
