You can test whenever lol But in order to know if it's positive reading you have to wait 2 weeks yes because that's how long it takes for the egg and sperm to meet an plant :) good luck!

Yes you have to wait 2 weeks or.very close to two weeks for the chemical hcg to be present. Hcg is what makes the test positive

 you can test whenever, but results will be more accurate if you wait the 2-3 weeks.

Well if you take it right after sex you won't be getting a positive.  Sometimes even after 2 weeks you won't get a positive.  I think the earliest a lot of women find out is at 3 weeks.  I found out at 4.
