One could be: 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.

Possible: Possible but unlikely. My question to you is why go through such a difficult decision of abortion only to TUR around and have unprotected sex? Please see a provider to get on a reliable form of birth control if you do not want to be pregnant.

I had a period for a day and was wondering if I could be pregnant.. I had unprotected sex 2 weeks ago?

Maybe. Maybe not.: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate, if any persistent or worrisome symptoms.
