Yes: If you did conceive, and it is positive it is accurate. But what i think you are asking is: "will a pregnancy test be a reliable indicator of pregnancy one week after intercourse?" probably not most home pregnancy tests are reliable after your first missed period, or about 4-5 weeks. ...Read more
Negative: First i really don't believe in "implantation bleeding, " but implantation happens 6-7 days after fertilization. So 'if' you implanted, it would be almost a week later before test could be positive. Good luck! ...Read more
10-14 days: The pregnancy test can be effective 10-14 days after intercourse. I suggest to wait for the regular menstruation. If the menstruation fail to start, do one pregnancy test. If the test is negative, wait another 1-2 weeks for the menstruation to come. If not, repeat the pregnancy test. If the test is again negative and menstruation is absent, there may be other causes for the missing menstruation. ...Read more

But she would still be "late". ...Read more
Usually: When these give false results early on it is usually a false negative. A positive means it detects hormones made specifically by the conceptus/cell mass of a starting baby.

Test again in a few & plan on seeing your doc later to confirm/begin prenatal care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can someone be pregnant after a negative home pregnancy test and a negative pee test from the clinic? Should they take another test?
Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. 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
Maybe: If you have regular periods and if you tested sufficiently late in the cycle, it wouldn't be very likely because the tests are mostly reliable. Otoh if you tested early or cycles are unpredictable it's definitely a chance. I'd suggest testing again in a day or two before taking too many other steps. ...Read more

On levora (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) .15/30 if 1 pill missed on 4th day of that pack, but made up.Should a pregnancy test be taken even if "period" came at right time?
Pregnant on OCP: It is possible that you may be pregnant if you missed a couple of days of the birth control pills, especially with the lower dose pills. Missing only a single pill and making it up promptly makes it less likely. Still, checking a pregnancy test won't do much harm and you can see your doctor if you are pregnant. ...Read more
