Is 4 days after unprotected sex too soon to take a pregnancy test? I also have taken Plan B will that impact the result?

Is 4 days after unprotected sex too soon to take a pregnancy test? I also have taken Plan B will that impact the result?

Yes & yes but no: 4 days after unprotected sex is too soon to take a home pregnancy test. Yes, if you take Plan B it will markedly reduce your chance of getting pregnant from that episode of sex. But no, the Plan B will not cause the test to give a false positive or a false negative. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Worrisome...: Your story is worrisome. Plan B is reported to be better than 88% effective in preventing pregnancy. That means that means that about 12% of the time its not effective. Its possible you are pregnant. The best way to find out is to go to your doctor or the health-department and get a pregnancy test. Or you can get one at the pharmacy and do one at home. Best wishes! ...Read more

When did I conceive? I had sex, 06/16 took Plan B 16hrs after. On 07/3 had sex again. Expected period day the 07/04. On 07/10 positive pregnancy test

When did I conceive? I had sex, 06/16 took Plan B 16hrs after. On 07/3 had sex again. Expected period day the 07/04. On 07/10 positive pregnancy test

Conception: You are going to need a dating ultrasound to tell when you conceived. But, Plan B only works 50% of the time. That is why regular birth control is much more effective at preventing pregnancy. It would be very unlikely for any test to be able to pick up pregnancy on 7/10 from sex on 7/3. You most likely got pregnant in June. Here is a tool I recommend: http://www.babymed.com/conception-calculator ...Read more

Hi, can levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) ed cause a false positive pregnancy test result or say I'm not pregnant when I actually am? Thank you

Hi, can levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) ed cause a false positive pregnancy test result or say I'm not pregnant when I actually am? Thank you

Neither one: Levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) would not cause a false positive pregnancy test, nor would it mask a pregnancy (i.e., you are pregnant, but because of levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) the pregnancy test comes back negative). ...Read more

Two weekends ago i had unprtoceted sex and took plan b on day three. Then had sex with someone after, pregnancy test was positive last night. Who?

Pregnancy: To be 100% certain, DNA testing of the baby is the way to go. Plan B is most effective if taken within 24 hrs of unprotected sex so if you took it 3 days after your first episode of unprotected sex, it may not have worked. Usually HPTs detect pregnancy that's at least 2 weeks old. The two encounters are too close together for anybody to say with absolute certainty. ...Read more
