Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum
, occurs within day or so of the sex
. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo
to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test
test may be done a day after a missed period
. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine
and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception
all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
