  • mine showed a positive result like 2 days after my period was late. so i dont know. its better to wait more. because with my first pregnancy, i knew i was pregnant, but then i took the test like a week before my period was supposed to be. And it was unaccurate. But I was pregnant. I took it again a few days after my period was late. it was positive. wait it out. so you aren't sure.

  • Depending on the sensitivity of the test, it can show as early as 9 dpo, although it may take longer than that for your levels to be high enough to detect. I got a positive at 10 dpo with my youngest.

  • Usually they tell you 14-16 days after intercourse.
