Can hCG be produced the day after intercourse? Would a urine home pregnancy test detect pregnancy this soon? If not, how soon?

In brief: Pregnancy tests

Depends on the test.
Many within the first two weeks. Most doctors recommend you wait until the first day of your missed period since the HCG has to build up. Urine tests are 97% accurate. Blood tests pick it up sooner and are more accurate.
