How soon can I check a pregnancy test?

Pregnancy tests are suggested for use only from the first day of your expected (missed) period.  A pregnancy test is normally only accurate 3-4 weeks after conception (normally at least 19 days after unprotected sex) or later, when the hormone hCG levels can be detected (which pregnancy tests measure).  The longer you wait, the more accurate the results. This is one reason for re-taking the test after a few days if you’re unsure (hCG levels will continue to rise over time if you are pregnant).
