ask: When to test?

Would a blood pregnancy test 5 weeks and a first response urine test at 6 weeks since sex be accurate? All tests have been negative.

Hello Anonymous,

Yes. The hormone hCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) is produced during pregnancy. Levels can first be detected by a blood test about 11 days after conception and about 12 to 14 days after conception by a urine test.

Hi Anon

Yes, these tests are generally accurate, therefore you are not pregnant.
