In brief: Pregnancy test

Accuracy of home pregnancy tests do not rely on when you had intercourse rather when the test is performed in relationship to your expected menstrual cycle.
Newer pregnancy tests are able to detect pregnancy several days before your expected menstrual cycle. Your fertile window is around time of ovulation which is around day 14 in a 28 day cycle. This is when intercourse can lead to pregnancy.
