7 days late period: To be certain, you should wait until your next period is 7 days late, buy a fresh pregnancy test and use it as directed. Some early pregnancy tests will advertize that they can reliably detect pregnancy on the first day of a missed period, but they don't always perform that well. If unprotected sex was today or yesterday you could look into the morning-after pill. Ask your dr. Or pharmacy.

Sometimes yes: Sometimes a woman can get pregnant during or right after her normal cycle, if she ovulates a couple of days after having sex. It's even harder to predict when she ovulates, if she has irregular periods.
A female asked:

3 weeks: A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly, 3 weeks after sex, or the week after missing a period.
