  • 5 days after sex it's not even implanted yet.... so it would be pregnant from a previous sex session

  • I would not think it would work that fast... when my husband and I were trying to conceive, I took a pregnancy test everyday right after the day we had sex, and I got an extremely faint positive by about the third to fourth week of testing.

  • I agree. the soonest you should get a positive urine test is around 3-4 weeks.

  • Excuse my frustration every time I see a question like this and people answer that it isn't possible, implantation takes 6-12 days. WELL, I was stationed apart from my husband while we were in the Air Force. We planned for a child, and we did the deed 1 time, on Oct 14th, 2001. We had limited time and figured it was a shot in the dark. I was young and unaware of how long you had to wait to take a test. I took a first response on Oct 19th, 2001 and it was positive! I got a blood test to confirm and my daughter is now 7. For people to assume every mans sperm swims at the same speed, that every woman's body works at the same pace, is rediculous. YES YOU CAN FIND OUT YOU ARE PREG 5 DAYS AFTER intercourse. Please don't not accuse people of being "already" pregant, lol. I only did the did 1 day. So ladies, please don't give up hope. :-) THanks.

  • Also, I would like to add that technically finding out I was pregnant 5 days post intercourse which was also 5 days post ovulation. So, I got the postive HPT on day 21 of of my cycle which would be week 3 and would have been 7 days before a missed period. When you say 5 days post O, you think no way, but when you hear 6-7 days before a missed period it is somehow believable, but the SAME THING. :-)
