How long after sex should I take a pregnancy test? Will birth control or Plan B mess up the results?

In brief: Take a test

Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant.
Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. Plan B and birth control does not interfere with a pregnancy test results
