Sperm take one to five days to reach this egg. ...Read more

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

Breast feeding: Breast feeding can delay the onset of regular menses. It does not, however, prevent ovulation prior to your first menses after delivery. Have you had unprotected intercourse? If the answer is yes, (and breast feeding is NOT protection), then indeed you could very well be pregnant. Your best plan would be to make an appointment with your provider to evaluate/have your first prenatal appointment. ...Read more

What's your question: If you're wondering if you might be pregnant, then take pregnancy test. They're most accurate when used 4 weeks after missing your period.

And make him wear condom each & every time to reduce STD/STI risk. ...Read more

I had an ectopic pregnancy and they did surgery my tubes was not removed had sex a week or so later after first period I took a hpt came bck pregnt?
What's your question: Home pregnancy tests are pretty accurate at looking for HCG in urine. However, you can have HCG in your urine when not pregant, say immediately after surgery for ectopic pregnancy but not likely a month later. Best to go see your doc for serial (not cereal) pregnancy tests to confirm HCG going down, not up. Also time to ask for contraception, unless you're trying to get pregnant. ...Read more
