When should I test?

My last period is from the 19th-24th of February, and I generally have a pretty short cycle (26 days, give or take) and my period is generally regular, although there would be instances where it would be a couple of days early/late. My next period is supposed to be on the 16th of March. My last intercourse was on the 10th of March, which would be a bit too late to conceive. However, the intercourse before that was on the 23rd of February. Do you think that there's any possibility for me to be pregnant? Or is my period just late and I should just wait it out? Should I test?

Thank you in advance!

Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting.

The only way to know for sure is to test. Pregnancy tests are accurate 14-21 days after sex.
