If a qualitative blood pregnancy test is done three weeks after a sexual encounter and done correctly can you trust the results if they are negative?

In brief: Depends on cycles

Depends on how regular (or not) your menstrual cycles are.
Pregnancy tests are reliable a few days before the expected period, so you could do one then. If you have no idea when your next period will be, then testing about 3 weeks after intercourse would be a good guess. Hopes this helps.
