How many days after sex should I check a pregnancy test? I'm on depo so I don't get periods anymore so I really don't know when my expected period?
3 weeks: 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 regular period (in women who have regular periods). 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. ...Read more
