Is it possible to get a positive pregnancy test 8days after sex? Sex was on the 1st didn't have period on the 3rd and by the 8th had tested positive.

Is it possible to get a positive pregnancy test 8days after sex? Sex was on the 1st didn't have period on the 3rd and by the 8th had tested positive.

Unlikely: Was this the only episode of sex since your last period? It is very unlikely an embryo resulting from sex would produce enough HCG for a positive pregnancy test. 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. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. 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.

LMP: The duration of pregnancy is usually measured from the date of the last menstrual period. Conception is generally taken to have occurred 14 days before the date of expected period. If your periods are irregular, the best guess is that you got pregnant on or about February 20. Your doctor may help narrow the date by ultrasound examination of the fetus. ...Read more

Miscarriage?: You cannot possibly be pregnant on July 9 if your period was June15, so what you might actually had was a miscarriage or incomplete abortion.

I had my period Nov 12 ended Pregnancy test positive Dec 16 how far along is the Pregnancy now?

It depends: If it really was a period you would be about 6 weeks along. However, you might be further along if the period was just first trimester spotting. A transvaginal ultrasound will give you a much more definite answer because it can actually measure the size of the gestational sac and the crown-rump length of the fetus. It is usually accurate plus or minus a week. ...Read more

Maybe: You may have had a very early miscarriage. We now know, since we have such sensitive pregnancy tests, that there are a lot more miscarriages than we knew about in the past. A lot of late periods it turns out are actually miscarriages. If you aren't having any problems, there is nothing that needs to be done at this point and there is no way to know for sure if this is what happened. Hope this help ...Read more
