Possible: Your chances for pregnancy are highest when intercourse happens the day prior to ovulation, as well as day of ovulation. Be patient and check your pregnancy test at the time of expected menses if cycle is delayed. Good luck!

Trust the test : Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. The best time is when you miss your period. You're 20 years old. Why such a rush?
