I had unprotected sex on my period, could I still be pregnant? When is the soonest I could take a test? Do I have to wait until I miss my next period?

I had unprotected sex on my period, could I still be pregnant? When is the soonest I could take a test? Do I have to wait until I miss my next period?

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.

Very unlikely: Pregnancy tests are accurate and reliable, and although no test is 100%, pregnancy tests are close. If you have more than one negative pregnancy test then it is very unlikely you are pregnant. I agree with your Gyno's plan. You should of course have one more pregnancy test prior to taking the pill(s) to start your period. ...Read more
