How Long After Sex Can You Take a Pregnancy Test?
Provided you have sex within two days prior to ovulation, you can test for pregnancy about 9-11 days after conception. Remember that in a young, healthy population, the chances of conception are still only 50 percent per cycle and this number begins to drop after the age of 26. Assuming you conceive, you can take a pregnancy test 9-11 days after ovulation or after conception and may get a positive result if the fertilized embryo has already implanted into the uterine lining.
How Long After IUI Can You Test For Pregnancy?
If you are testing after IUI, after embryo transfer, or after IVF, it is the same as testing after ovulation. The test won’t be positive until implantation has occurred and this can take up to 9-11 days. If you check your urine after intercourse, the test will not be positive and you may not have even conceived yet. Wait until you are closer to missing a period. Even testing after 1 week post-ovulation is too early in almost all cases. After a week, the embryo is still free-floating and is looking for a place to land on the uterine lining and implant.
