Had sex a wk before period and got a positive pregnancy test 2 weeks after. Is that possible? Or could pregnancy hav happen before that intercourse?

Old way or DNA way..: The father of an unborn baby is the person a woman had sex with. To avoid confusion, and many emotional, community, and societal problems, men and women can choose to have sex with one person in any time period (thus avoiding any confusion as to who the father is). Failing that, when the baby is born the mother may be able to tell who her baby looks like the most. Dna testing can be done, too. ...Read more

It : It would be reasonable to take a pregnancy test now based on your symptoms. It does make it hard when you have very irregular periods as you note. If your test is negative, but you still don't get your period, wait two days then re-take the test. If it is still negative you could see your doctor and possibly get a blood pregnancy test, which is more accurate. In general, the pregnancy test can become positive 10 days after pregnancy though every womans hormone level of pregnancy (HCG) can be a little different at different stages of the pregnancy. ...Read more
