Pregnancy tests.: Urine pregnancy tests have become increasingly sensitive. 15 days after intercourse, it is likely the test would be positive if you were pregnant. It would be worth repeating if you had anything but a normal menstrual period. Menstrual periods are not absolute methods to determine pregnancy. Women can have periods the first month they are pregnant though generally shorter, lighter. ...Read more

If she is irregular and doesn't know when her next period is due, then she can test 3 weeks after sex (after presumed conception).

Can you take a pregnancy test two weeks after you have had intercourse and also to make it clearer I had unprotected sex two weeks before my period?

See below: 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. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

It would be too: Early to pick up on a pregnancy from sexual intercourse that occurred 5 days ago. However, if you were sexually active prior to that time & period is 16 days late - then could test for pregnancy now. Women often wait for about two weeks or a missed period to test using standard home pregnancy test. Take care. ...Read more

Can I get my period if I have intercourse the day before my period and when should I take a pregnancy test to see if im pregnant and which test I use.

Most women get their periods a day after sex, if they only had sex a day before their expected periods (of course). If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

You: You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period (3-4 weeks since having unprotected sex), or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period or 3-4 weeks after conception. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. ...Read more
