  • I think the reason she's asking is concern over who the father would be. Odds are, it's the ex - boyfriend. If your period was 3-4 days late, then you were already pregnant when you had the one night stand.

  • Ex boyfriend is the father. 5 days before your missed period is when you can test. If you were already late for your period then you are at least 2-3 weeks pregnant and you were with your ex at that time.

  • I took the digital test 7 days before I missed my period and it was positive.
