Question: How soon can I test for pregnancy?

 santinacantina - Mon Oct 22, 2007 5:32 pm

I had unprotected sex two days ago (Saturday, October 20), and I should be getting my period in two more days (Wednesday, October 24th). What are the chances that I'm pregnant, and how soon can I test?

User avatar Hi Santinacantina,

It is most likely that you were not very fertile if your period is due in two days. This does not mean, though, that the chances are zero, only not very high.

Pregnancy tests generally become reliable by the 5th week after your previous period.

Best wishes.
