Is it too soon for a positive pregnancy test?

How long after intercourse can you get a positive result? We started trying for another baby. And we had unprotected intercourse on the 10th. Would it be too early to get a positive result yet?

Nope i found out 11 days after

I found out super early. When I called the doctors, they’re like what?!

If you don’t want to be disappointed I would wait.

I found out at 4 weeks

Just wait for a missed period and then test. You’ll likely get all kinds of strange, sometimes unreadable results if you test earlier.

Normally about 10-14 days after ovulation. Some tests can show pretty early

I found out at 3 weeks with one and 2 weeks with the other

Anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks is typically when tests will detect enough hormones

Depends on when you ovulate. I tested positive 9 days after ovulation both times, but we were tracking and knew which day I ovulated.

It won’t hurt to try

I just let nature take it’s course a month I missed my period that’s how I knew

So it depends on actual ovulation and implantation. Implantation occurs 6-12 days after ovulation and that’s when hcg starts to rise.

Not to early might as well try

Some tests say a week before your next expected period. So if you’re supposed to start next week or less than you can test now.

I found out 10 days after intercourse.

I found out the exact day I was supposed to get my period, I was sick feeling, and tied and emotional for the few days leading up to it, and I told my husband I couldn’t wait to see if my period was gonna come, cause I just knew. Took the test and immediately popped positive

I got a positive 8 days after I ovulated

Shouldn’t be. It’s usually between 3 and 6 weeks.

I got a positive after missing my period at exactly 2 weeks lines were dark as hell… I ended up having twins good luck :heart::heart:
