Would a pregnancy test still be accurate if you took it 1 week after your last sexual encounter?

Great question!

The only way someone can know if they are pregnant is to take a test at least 14 days after the most recent sexual contact. The result can be trusted at this time.

So, if someone took a test 1 week after the most recent sexual encounter, it would be a good idea to take another test 14 days after the most recent sexual encounter to get an accurate result.
