Question about a pregnancy test

Would a pregnancy test be able to detect something a little over a week after having sex. We had it Nov. 3) My period isn't due until about the 21 or so of this month. My last cycle was October 24.
Thanks for your help

Hi lizzylu,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question.  Most Pregnancy test give a more accurate reading after a week of a missed period. If you are taking the pill it's very unlikely you will be pregnant. But if you want to take a pregnancy test, is best to wait until the day of a missed period till a week after.
