Is it possible to get a positive pregnancy test 8days after sex? Sex was on the 1st didn't have period on the 3rd and by the 8th had tested positive.

Unlikely: Was this the only episode of sex since your last period? It is very unlikely an embryo resulting from sex would produce enough HCG for a positive pregnancy test. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
