How many days after unprotected sex do you have to wait to see if your pregnant?

My husband and I had unprotected sex and I am not on birth control. I don't know what we were thinking.

  • After conception, it takes 12 days for there to be enough HGC in your urine to show up on a pee test

  • How long ago was your last period?

    Generally a home test can detect pregnancy 2 weeks after ovulation. Which "on average" occurs 2 weeks after the start of your period.

  • I would never test or even stress about unless my period is late. Otherwise you're worrying yourself over nothing and may even make yourself late from stress.

  • If it was in the last 3 days you can get the morning after pill over the counter.

  • Has it always been irregular?

    Best thing to do, is not stress and test in 2 weeks.

  • I agree, I would test in about 2 weeks. Don't worry about it for now. If you are pregnant, then you can start to figure out things. I understand though. I detest the waiting.

  • you can test in about 3 weeks. or as soon as you miss your period. but since you dont have your period very often then i would just go and take the test in about 3 weeks or so and then if thats negative and you still dont get your period i would wait another 2 or 3 weeks and take it again just to make sure
