Pregnancy: It takes 2-3 days for the sperm to meet the egg, 2-3 days for the egg to travel down the fallopian tube, 1-2 days for the fertilized egg to implant, and another 2-3 days for the level of hcg to build up enough in your system to get a positive result on a pregnancy test. That means it takes 7-11 days (on average).

Yes: This would actually be pretty good timing if attempting to conceive. However, pregnancy can occur with sex anytime during a woman's menstrual cycle.

You could be.: It will take at least 9 days for a pregnancy test to turn positive. When timing intercourse appropriately as it appears you have, there is about a 15-20% chance of pregnancy occuring. If your test is not + a week after a missed period then you probably are not pregnant. If you are not trying to become pregnant, then you need reliable contraception.
