I did take a pregnancy test fourteen days after the sexual contact….

….but my period is late again. Can I still trust the result?

The earliest that someone can take a pregnancy test is 14 days after the sexual contact.  At that time someone will get an accurate result.

So if it was at least 14 days after the sexual contact, you can trust the result. It is important to know that there are many reasons why someone may not have a regular period.

Sometimes a person just naturally has a less predictable period, which can be perfectly medically okay.  Also, lots of factors can make a person’s period fluctuate. Things like being sick, sleep, stress, exercise, and diet can all make a person’s period change or fluctuate.
