Wait a full missed cycle. I know the test kits tell you that they can give a reading in 2 days, but the hormone they test for takes a cycle to build up and you are apt to get a false reading with an eariler test. Save your money and do it after you have missed one cycle.
14 weeks after intercourse is the most accurate date for determining pregnancy with a home pregnancy test.
