Best Answer

I am in Britain so the answer may be different in other countries. Here in Britain there is a home pregnancy test which can give you a result 7-10 days after unprotected intercourse. It claims to be 97% accurate. At this early stage however the fertilised egg may not yet have implanted and the test may come up negative, or the woman may have a period and 'miscarry'. Before these ultrasensitive test she would never have known she was pregnant. Probably not best used unless it is really important to know.

Can a home pregnancy test tell if you are pregnant 5-6 days before your period?

When you get pregnant your body produces a pregnancy hormone that the HPT picks up. That is how it knows your pregnant. In early pregnancy the hormone is not always strong enough to be detected, that is why they suggest you wait until you miss you period to take the HPT. That is not to say it won't detect it, every pregnancy is different. If you want to know before you miss your period you should go to a doctor.

Can you have a negative home test and still be pregnant?

of course that can happen. because home pregnancy tests detect through the urine the hormones a pregnant woman is secreting. so if the amount of hormones is not enough then the test cannot detect them and turns negative. but this does not mean for sure that you are not pregnant. A negative home pregnancy test can be wrong a positive is always right. if you wait some days and assuming that you are late with your period your result will be more accurate.
