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?

Maybe. Maybe not.: If already pregnant, that would mean the "period" was not a real menstrual period, because having a real menstrual period clears out the uterus... So having a real menstrual period means not pregnant at that time. ...Read more

Can implantation occur a little less than 48 hours after sex? Positive pregnancy test less than 48 hrs after intercourse as well.

Can implantation occur a little less than 48 hours after sex? Positive pregnancy test less than 48 hrs after intercourse as well.

Anatomy : Nope. Absolutely not. First: the sperm have to swim through the cervix, through the uterus, out the fallopian tube and find an ovulated egg. This takes more than 48 hours.

It is impossible to test. ...Read more

Had a positive pregnancy test april 11 afternoon . Could it be possible it from intercourse of april 4th??
