Yes: What else can i say? I assume you've had unprotected sex with a healthy male at some time in the recent past. Stop smoking or drinking alcohol if you do these and verify whether or not you're pregnant. If you are your doctor may want to start you on prenatal vitamins and discuss this whole subject in detail. Good luck. ...Read more

Too soon to know: 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. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
