the women in my family are known to be VERY fertile. my mom had 9 kids, my sisters 4-5 each, and on both sides behind that 4-7 each. i put off sex for so long because of tht. i know everyone is different, but it is true that you can get pregnant any time of the month, just depends on each person separately, right?
its possible ypu ended up with an irregular period which happened to me. I had sex a day or so before I was due but didnt.realize I was late till later on. I got a positive test almost 2 full weeks before my first ultrasound which dated me at 5 weeks 3 days, and as tge above poster said 2 of those weeks your not even really pregnant. so it is possible to get a positive at 2 weeks late.
I don't it think so, bc (this is tmi) you know when you get crampy and you start the first few drops right before the heavy bleeding starts? that's how it is at least for me. I was right there, I knew it was going to set in, but knew I had a few hours. Then, all my symptoms stopped and I started spotting 3/4 days later - just drops on tissue for three days. And then I started feeling the symptoms like I was gonna get it again, except they were different kinda. So, I don't think it's an irregular period, but maybe I'm wrong.
And for your original question, from the day you had sex, you should get a positive HPT about 14-20 days later. It's USUALLY 14-15 days later. Take a test 20 days from the day you had sex (just to be safe, because by then you know it's going to be 100% accurate) and if it's negative, you're not pregnant, if it's positive you are.
Still, if it was 1 day before your expected period, even 4-5 days before your expected period, it's still very, very very unlikely. there's like a 36 hour window you can get pregnant in a month, and before your period is not it.
