Too soon to test: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 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. ...Read more

Needs some time: Your body needs some time to regulate it's hormones again after a miscarriage and get itself ready to be able to conceive once again.

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

Period Always on Time , Unprotected Sex Period 5 Days Late Then Light Bleeding Turned Into Spotting Lasted 4 days. Neg Test At 9/12 DPO . pregnant?

Certainly possible.: I don't know what you mean by "9/12 DPO" but can offer some generalities. Since your periods are regular, it's likely that you ovulate regularly. There is about a 4-5 day window each month during which intercourse can result in conception. It's not uncommon to have mild bleeding/spotting when the embryo implants in the uterus. Do a 2nd pregnancy test if your period is another week late. ...Read more
