2-3 weeks: If you had unprotected sex on 10/29, you could become pregnant as late as 11/2. Thus a positive pregnancy test would occur about 10-14 days after 11/2. Assuming that you only had that one instance of unprotected sex. If you had additional unprotected sex after 10/29, then of course, that pushes the dates back farther. Hope that answers your question.

Now: On oct. 29 you where on your 8th day or your period. If you have a normal 28 day cycle your ovulation day should be between day 10 to 15, most likely day 14. Since spermatozoid can survive up to 4-5 days, you could get pregnant.
