The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  if you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Lmp. 03/11 Unprotected sex 3/21. Lightly Spotted dark brown/black 03/31  for 3 days on&off. Missed period 6days late. preg?  Implantation bleeding?

Take a test: Implantation bleeding is not really as common as the internet would have you believe. When it does happen it's usually 6-12 days after ovulation. A pregnancy test 14 days after unprotected intercourse is much more helpful. Implantation bleeding occurs exclusively in pregnant women. If your pregnancy test is negative then the bleeding was just irregular spotting. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex 3 weeks before expected period, 2-3 days after period ended, about 6 days before ovulation. Should I be worried about pregnancy?

Not if you're...: Not if you're trying to get pregnant. Otherwise, yes. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), 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. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more
