  • No it looks for the pregnancy hormone, not sperm, semen, any of that. And sperm can get into your urine if you have sex and go pee right away. My doc tells me to pee after sex because it helps clean out a lot of it after I already clean up.

  • No it can't. However you CAN test too early before the pregnancy hormone it's detecting is strong enough to show up. If you are far enough will detect that hormone...whether it's mixed with sperm or lubrication or whatever else.
