In brief: Pregnancy Test

3-4 days after implantation which can occur up to a day or two after sex.
Pregnancy tests begin to show true positive about a week after successful intercourse but are even more reliable at 2 weeks.

In brief: 14

When you miss a period.
The next day you can test. A new fetus is made one to five days after sex. Then about fourteen days later the fetus would be big enough to have hormones that would be detectable.
