Low probability : I would at least wait until you have missed your period and then try.

Depends on the test: A blood test will be accurate if you take it 15 days after you have had intercourse. A blood test can even be done sooner. Most over the counter urine tests will detect pregnancy the day after you miss your period. So 15 days after intercourse should be enough time to find out if you are pregnant or not.

Can you get an accurate pregnancy test 12 days after sex?

Once in a while: 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.
