Can You Get A Positive Pregnancy Test 8 Days After Sex

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Unlikely: That would be highly unusual. Conception usually occurs one to five days after intercourse and then the fetus has to grow to a point where it is sharing blood with the mother's body. ...Read more
Sometimes, but...: That is very early, so often the test will still be negative, and one will end up retesting. Patience is a vital virtue for any aspiring parent-to-be. One should just wait 3 weeks after the estimated date of fertilization, and test then. ...Read more
Positive Pregnancy: Pregnancy implies conception, not ovulation. Positive tests mean the fetus has had time to transit the fallopian tubes and enter into and settle on the wall of the uterus and has had enough time to grow big enough to be spilling chemicals and sharing blood with the mother.

Can, but not useful: 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. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more
Patience...: 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. ...Read more
