I had sex 2 weeks ago and I just feel like I could be pregnant. I want to take a test tomorrow but my period isn’t due until a weeks time, can I still take a test?

they're most accurate on the day your period is due, the soonest they can work is 5-6 days before but if you take one then it could be a false negative so the longer you hold out on testing the more accurate it can be. I took one 4 days before and it was negative when I was actually pregnant

You need to wait at least 3 weeks since you last had sex.

Assuming you have a 28 day cycle, if you had sex on day 7 (not due on your period for 3 weeks), it's very unlikely that you are pregnant. Wait until your period is late and then take one. A negative result now is meaningless.
